FA Cup: Three EPL clubs eliminated
At least four Premier League clubs have been eliminated from this year’s FA Cup. This follows a number of shock results in the third round ties played on Saturday. Newcastle United suffered an embarrassing 1-0 home defeat by third-tier Cambridge United. Joe Ironside netted a second-half goal and goalkeeper Dimitar Mitov made a series of superb saves to seal a famous victory at St James’ Park. Burnley were another Premier League casualty, as they lost 2-1 to Huddersfield Town. The visitors came from a goal down to win late on through Matty Pearson’s 87th-minute header from a corner. Jay Rodriguez’s header had given Sean Dyche’s men the lead, but Josh Koroma equalized in the 74th minute. Leicester, who are the current holders of the cup, saw off Watford 4-1, with goals by Youri Tielemans, James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton. Chelsea, Everton, Southampton and Brentford are, however, all through to the next round of the competition.
