Leeds United have been handed a tough draw in the FA Cup third round as they travel to London to face Arsenal.

Leeds faced similar trips in January of 2011 and 2012, drawing 1-1 in 2011 with a Robert Snodgrass penalty and losing 1-0 in 2012 to a Thierry Henry goal - his first since returning to the club.

Marcelo Bielsa is unlikely to put out a full side for the match as the cup is lower priority than the promotion chase. However, it will be a fun trip for 6-7,000 fans and a good watch on TV for those who can’t get a ticket.

How seriously do you think Leeds should take the FA Cup this year? Could an upset be on the cards?
