There are just two all-Premier League ties to be played in the third round of the FA Cup this season.
Bournemouth and Brighton will go head-to-head at the Vitality Stadium while Wolves are set to host Liverpool.
While the third round of the FA Cup is still some way off, it is obviously worth taking note of the fixtures that will take place.
Those all-Premier League ties may feature slightly stronger XIs compared those involving top flight sides facing lower league opposition.
The toughest tests for those FPL teams includes Chelsea’s hosting of Nottingham Forest, who have knocked out the holders of the FA Cup five times in their last six matches against a reigning champion.
Southampton will travel to Derby County where they will take on Frank Lampard’s in-form side.
Outside of that there appear to be mostly routine matches for the remainder of the Premier League clubs, whose FPL fixtures should be largely unaffected in terms of rotation.
The matches will take place between Gameweek 21 and 22.
