The English Premier League and Championship take a break this weekend with the Third Round of the FA Cup taking centre stage with a host of Caltex Socceroos set to be in action.
He’s a wrap of where a few of them will be playing.
RYAN SET FOR HISTORIC ENGLISH FOOTBALL FIRST
All eyes will be on Brighton’s home clash with Crystal Palace on Tuesday morning (AEDT), with the tie to be the first competitive club match in England to use the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Brighton and Palace have already met in the EPL this season, with the clash in November ending 0-0 and another tight contest is likely at the AMEX Stadium.
