The FA Cup third round will feature a Merseyside derby for the second time in three years after Liverpool were drawn at home to Everton, while Manchester City were handed a home game against Port Vale.

Manchester United face tricky trip to Wolves, while Tottenham must travel to Championship side Middlesbrough.

Arsenal welcome Leeds to the Emirates, while Chelsea were also handed a home tie against high-flying second-tier opposition, with Nottingham Forest heading to Stamford Bridge.

A non-league side will get the chance to beat a Premier League team, with AFC Fylde drawn away at Sheffield United. – Guardian
