Which players performed the best in the cup competition?
The FA Cup 3rd Round may not have thrown up many big name shocks that we all know and love but it certainly provided some stand out performances from English football’s best players.
We look at the best side available from the star performers of this round of fixtures.
GK: Costel Pantilimon (Sunderland)
Deserved his clean sheet after making some important stops in the second half and ensured a 1-0 victory for the Black Cats.
LB: Patrick van Aanholt (Sunderland)
Another from Tyneside to make it into the XI and van Aanholt was exceptional from the back – getting forward to great effect and smashing in a brilliant winner
