FA CUP - CITY DRAW UNITED IN FA CUP THIRD ROUND

City will welcome their arch-rivals to the Etihad Stadium on the weekend of January 7 and 8 still revelling in their recent 6-1 league triumph at Old Trafford.

The tie was one of only two all-Premier League affairs to emerge from Sunday afternoon's draw, with Newcastle hosting Blackburn in the other.

Arsenal will host Championship Leeds in a repeat of the 1972 final, while non-league Tamworth's reward for their 2-1 second round win at Gateshead is a trip top top-flight Everton.

Chelsea boss Andre Villa-Boas' first taste of the FA Cup will come at home to Championship side Portsmouth, who beat Cardiff in the 2008 final. Aston Villa face a trip to League Two Bristol Rovers, who earned their place in the third round with a 6-1 demolition of Southern Premier Division AFC Totton at Testwood Park on Sunday afternoon.

Harry Redknapp's Tottenham will also entertain opposition from League Two as Cheltenham head for White Hart Lane, while Liverpool will await the outcome of the second-round replay between Southend and Oldham to discover their opponents.

Craven Cottage will stage a London derby as Fulham take on League One leaders Charlton, while midlands neighbours Birmingham and Wolves will meet at St Andrew's.

Premier League newcomers Norwich have been drawn at home to Championship Burnley, while Swansea, who were promoted with the Canaries, travel to Barnsley and QPR travel to League One MK Dons.

There are away ties too for Stoke, who head for League Two Gillingham, and Bolton, who will visit either Conference South Chelmsford or League Two Macclesfield, and Martin O'Neill's first FA Cup tie in charge of Sunderland will come at Peterborough of the Championship.

West Brom entertain Championship promotion hopefuls Cardiff, while Premier League basement boys Wigan head for League Two Swindon.
