Manchester City to face Chelsea in FA Cup third round

Manchester City have been drawn to face Chelsea in the FA Cup third round, just weeks after the two teams squared off at the same stage of the EFL Cup.

In the week before the World Cup, City prevailed by a 2-0 scoreline, and the teams will again do battle just days after they meet in a Premier League fixture on January 5.

Holders Liverpool have also been given an all-Premier League tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Manchester United play host to Everton.

Top-flight leaders Arsenal will make the trip to League One outfit Oxford United, with Tottenham Hotspur going up against Portsmouth.

Newcastle United travel to Hillsborough to face Sheffield Wednesday for what is another attractive tie, while Leeds United will visit South Wales to play Cardiff City.

In two more all-Premier League ties, Brentford host West Ham United in a London derby and Crystal Palace welcome Southampton to Selhurst Park.

National League side Wrexham have been given a trip to play Championship side Coventry City, with Chesterfield getting a home tie with West Bromwich Albion.
