FA Cup: Third Round draw


Manchester United travel to holders Manchester City in the pick of this year's third round ties in the FA Cup, sponsored by Budweiser.

The great rivals were the third match out of the pot, and is a repeat of last season's semi-final which saw Yaya Toure score the only goal at Wembley in a 1-0 win for Roberto Mancini's side.

In the other top ties, Arsenal will once again host Leeds United at the Emirates, whilst Bristol Rovers were rewarded for their televised 6-1 win over Totton with a home tie against Aston Villa.

Wolves travel to Birmingham City in an East Midlands derby, whilst Swansea City face a tricky looking trip to Barnsley in a number of Npower Championship v Barclays Premier League clashes.

New Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill will travel to free-scoring Peterborough United, whilst Chelsea host Portsmouth, Liverpool face Southend or Oldham at Anfield and Spurs will take on Cheltenham at White Hart Lane.

Wigan travel to Paolo di Canio's Swindon Town, whilst Everton will host non-league Tamworth.
