The FA Cup, also known officially as The Football Association Challenge Cup, is an annual knockout football competition in men's domestic English football. First played during the 1871–72 season, it is the oldest national football competition in the world. It is organised by and named after The Football Association (The FA). For sponsorship reasons, from 2015 through to 2019 it is also known as The Emirates FA Cup. A concurrent women's tournament is also held, the FA Women's Cup.

The competition is open to any eligible club down to Level 10 of the English football league system – all 92 professional clubs in the Premier League (Level 1) and the English Football League (Levels 2 to 4), and several hundred "non-league" teams in Steps 1 to 6 of the National League System (Levels 5 to 10). A record 763 clubs competed in 2011–12. The tournament consists of 12 randomly drawn rounds followed by the semi-finals and the final. Entrants are not seeded, although a system of byes based on league level ensures higher ranked teams enter in later rounds – the minimum number of games needed to win, depending on which round a team enters the competition, ranges from six to fourteen.

The first six rounds are the Qualifying Competition, from which 32 teams progress to the first round of the Competition Proper, meeting the first of the 48 professional teams from Leagues One and Two. The last entrants are the Premier League and Championship clubs, into the draw for the Third Round Proper. In the modern era, only one non-league team has ever reached the quarter-finals, and teams below Level 2 have never reached the final. As a result, significant focus is given to those "minnows" (smaller teams) who progress furthest, especially if they achieve an unlikely "giant-killing" victory.

Winners receive the FA Cup trophy, of which there have been two designs and five actual cups; the latest is a 2014 replica of the second design, introduced in 1911. Winners also qualify for the Europa League and a place in the FA Community Shield match. Arsène Wenger is the most successful manager in the history of the competition, having won seven finals as manager of Arsenal

Bukan misi mustahil tewaskan Liverpool - Ancelotti


MANCHESTER, England: Ketika Carlo Ancelotti mengambil alih Everton bulan lalu, pengendali dari Itali itu sudah melihat pertembungan tetangga Merseyside pada pusingan ketiga Piala FA awal pagi Isnin ini menentang pendahulu Liga Perdana, Liverpool.

Ancelotti ketika bersama kelabnya sebelum ini, Napoli berjaya melakukan apa yang tidak mampu dibuat pengurus lain di England musim ini – menewaskan skuad kendalian Juergen Klopp.

Liverpool tewas 2-0 di Naples pada Liga Juara-Juara September lalu diikuti seri 1-1 dalam saingan di Anfield – perlawanan tunggal tidak dimenangi Reds di laman sendiri musim ini.

Kekalahan lain buat Liverpool musim ini ialah pada saingan Piala EFL apabila kelab itu terpaksa menggunakan pasukan muda menentang Aston Villa kerana pasukan utama bermain pada Piala Dunia Kelab di Qatar.

“Penyokong Everton tahu rekod saya berdepan Liverpool, mereka akan gembira melihatnya,” kata Ancelotti apabila dia diperkenalkan selaku pengurus.

“Ada saingan yang hebat di sini dan ia motivasi besar buat kami. Saya ada hubungan yang bagus dengan Juergen Klopp. Sentiasa menarik berdepan mereka.

“Sudah tentu, saya menewaskan mereka tetapi mereka tidak biasa kalah. Ia hari yang bagus buat saya. Saya tahu betapa penyokong Everton sangat mahu menewaskan Liverpool.

“Ia bukanlah misi mustahil, tiada yang mustahil dalam bola sepak,” katanya. - Reuters

Klopp kagum aksi sulung Minamino


LONDON: Pengendali Liverpool Jurgen Klopp menyifatkan Takumi Minamino sebagai “hebat dan luar biasa” selepas pemain Jepun itu tampil buat kali pertama dalam kemenangan 1-0 Piala FA ke atas Everton awal pagi tadi.

Minamino, 24, yang ditandatangani dari kelab Salzburg di Austria, sebahagian daripada wajah baharu Reds di Anfield.

Minamino hampir menjaringkan gol pada penampilan sulungnya untuk juara Eropah itu sebelum digantikan dengan Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pada minit ke-70.

Seorang lagi pemain muda, Curtis Jones memastikan kemenangan buat Liverpool selepas pertukaran berkenaan.

“Hebat, luar biasa. Itulah pemain yang kami mahukan, betul-betul pemain yang kami harapkan,” kata Klopp.

“Perlawanan pertama anda dengan pasukan yang tidak anda kenali, jika ia sebuah pasukan yang sudah mantap pun sudah sukar – inikan pula pasukan yang baru dua kali berlatih bersama.

“Dan kemudian menampilkan permainan hebat begini, kemahiran bola sepak yang luar biasa, sikap yang menarik, menerajui permainan, sesuatu yang saya sukakan.” – AFP

Everton dijinak skuad muda Liverpool


LIVERPOOL: Pengendali Everton Carlo Ancelotti akan melakukan bedah siasat di atas kekalahan memalukan skuadnya dalam aksi Piala FA kepada skuad muda Liverpool.

Anak buah Ancelotti mensia-siakan peluang kemenangan untuk menang di Anfield buat pertama sejak tahun 1999 apabila Curtis Jones meledak gol tunggal dalam kemenangan 1-0 Liverpool pada pusingan ketiga kejohanan itu.

Jones, 18, produk akademi Liverpool, disertai empat muka baharu lain dalam kesebelasan utama diturunkan Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp melakukan sembilan pertukaran manakala Ancelotti membariskan skuad terkuad Everton yang terlepas beberapa peluang keemasan sepanjang babak pertama permainan.

“Saya tidak biasa bercakap dengan pemain-pemain selepas perlawanan tetapi saya akan membicarakannya kali ini,” kata bekas pengendali Napoli, Ancelotti.

“Saya rasa di babak kedua kami tidak mampu mengekalkan corak permainan diingini seperti di babak pertama, di mana kami mempunyai peluang untuk menjaringkan gol.

Kegagalan itu mempengaruhi persembahan kami di babak kedua, yang tidak cukup bagus.”

Sementara itu percaturan Klopp untuk merehatkan sebahagian besar tonggak utamanya membuahkan hasil dengan barisan pemain mudanya masih mampu menjelmakan kemenangan.

“Ramai pemain beraksi buat kali pertama di pentas ini di hadapan penyokong dan lawan seperti ini. Ia menakjubkan. Saya sukakan setiap saat perlawanan ini,” kata Klopp. – AFP

Takumi Minamino made 17 of 18 completed passes in the opposition half and had one shot in his Liverpool debut. 🌟

Jurgen Klopp: "Exactly the player we wanted, exactly the player we wished for." 🤗

07/01 - On this day in 1989, non-league Sutton United eliminated top-flight Coventry City from the FA Cup with 2-1 victory - the Sky Blues had won the competition two years prior to this defeat. Shock
