In a draw littered with all-Premier League ties, Arsenal will host North London rivals Tottenham in the biggest clash of the third round. The visitors will not be short on motivation after being pipped to a Champions League place by the Gunners last season, while Arsene Wenger will be looking to end his side’s lengthy trophy drought.

Manchester United and Swansea will clash in another top tier affair, while Norwich will take on Fulham, Newcastle play host Cardiff and West Brom will face Tony Pulis’ Crystal Palace.

rIn-form Liverpool face a potentially tricky home meeting with either Oldham or Mansfield, with the former having knocked the Reds out of the competition last year.

Jose Mourinho – who lifted the trophy during his first reign at Stamford Bridge – will kick off his latest tilt at the competition with a trip to Derby, and Manchester City will also be travelling to Championship opposition in the shape of Blackburn.

Wigan will begin their defence of their crown with a home meeting with the MK Dons, while the lowest team left in the competition Macclesfield play host to Sheffield Wednesday.
