Also tackling Premier League opposition in the Cup will be Barnsley, who travel to Burnley.

City's neighbour United is also at home to Championship struggler in the form of Reading.

Chelsea will hope to retain the FA Cup this season after winning it under Antonio Conte last season when they beat Jose Mourinho's Manchester United in the final.

Gunners boss Emery is, however, likely to field a rotated side against Solihull or Blackpool, with the opportunity to hand some of the club's fringe players chances now presenting itself.

The draw for the third round of the FA Cup has been conducted this evening and the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, Man Utd and Man City have discovered their fate.

Spurs, who lost Sunday's Premier League derby at the Emirates Stadium 4-2, will travel to either League Two Tranmere or National League North Southport.

It's time for the big guns to enter the competition and the lower league clubs left in the draw to dream of a lucrative away trip to a Premier League ground.

Ties will be played on the weekend of the 4-7th of January. The other is Barnet, which is away to Sheffield United.

Woking face visiting Watford while fellow minor league side Wrexham entertain another top flight outfit in Leicester City.
