Premier League’s Leeds United suffered the biggest upset of the FA Cup third round when it fell to a 3-0 defeat by fourth-tier Crawley Town on Sunday as Manchester City and Chelsea eased through.
A brilliant solo strike from Nick Tsaroulla in the 50th minute put League Two Crawley in front after a first half in which Leeds had caused it few problems.
Three minutes later the West Sussex club was 2-0 up after an error from Leeds keeper Kiko Casilla who let an Ashley Nadesan shot squeeze in at the near post.
The impressive Nadesan had a hand in Crawley’s third when his low shot was parried out by Casilla, only for Jordan Tunnicliffe to pounce and drill the ball home.
Crawley’s best run in the FA Cup came in 2012, when it reached the fifth round — the only other time it has made it past the third round.
