We analyse Sunday's FA Cup clash.

Leeds United travel to Queens Park Rangers on Sunday in the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup, the competition the Whites were winners of back in 1972.  Rangers were runners up in the competition in 1982, with the Whites were also runners up three times in 1965, 1970 and 1973.  The two Sky Bet Championship sides go head to head once more, less than a month after the Whites ran out 2-1 winners at Elland Road, courtesy of a brace from Kemar Roofe.
