Arsenal will meet Tottenham Hotspur in the pick of the FA Cup Third Round ties.

The draw had been relatively kind to the Premier League big guns - until Andre Villas-Boas' side were forced to make the trip to the Emirates Stadium for a huge north London derby.

Both sides have already met this season, with the Gunners claiming a 1-0 victory at home back in September.

Liverpool were the first big name out, and they could face a repeat of last year's shock exit against Oldham Athletic - if they beat Mansfield Town in a replay. This season, it will be at Anfield however.

West Ham will travel to face Nottingham Forest, whilst holders Wigan Athletic host MK Dons as they look to retain their trophy with a run to Wembley.

Manchester United face a tricky challenge at home to Swansea City, and David Moyes will be looking for some rest-bite with a positive Cup run.

Manchester City will make a tricky trip to Blackburn Rovers, and Everton will meet QPR in a tie that's far from easy for Roberto Martinez.

Chelsea face a very tricky trip to Championship side Derby County side, whilst three of the remaining four non-league teams were handed home ties.
