As the Emirates FA Cup third round prepares for lift off, can you tell which of these legendary players have won the competition?

Emirates FA Cup third round, from Friday 5 January, BBC + BT Sport

Football in January can only mean one thing: the third round of the Emirates FA Cup. It’s the time of year when fans of teams below the Premier League are dreaming big, while supporters of the big boys are praying their side won’t suffer an embarrassing early exit from this most historic of sporting competitions.

This week there are no less than seven live matches to enjoy on Virgin TV (with Full House TV you can watch all seven), including holders Arsenal’s trip to Nottingham Forest, Chelsea’s clash with Norwich City and the small matter of Liverpool going head to head with Everton at Anfield. Think you’re able to predict who’s going to go through to the next round? Don’t be so sure, because this tournament loves nothing more than to stun, shock and surprise.


Speaking of surprises, some of football’s most legendary names have won the FA Cup, but you’d be amazed which top stars never managed to get their hands on the trophy. Do you know your winners from your losers? Get set for all of the action by testing your knowledge with our quiz…
