Arsenal have been drawn against Liverpool in the FA Cup third round, while Newcastle have been handed a trip to north-east rivals Sunderland.

Arsenal, record 14-times winners of the competition will face title-rivals Liverpool as the Premier League and Championship sides enter the oldest cup competition in the world.

 

Newcastle go to Championship neighbours and fierce rivals Sunderland in the first Tyne-Wear derby since 2016.

 

Manchester United were drawn away in a domestic cup tie for the first time since 2021 as they go to League One side and 2013 FA Cup winners Wigan, after being handed 12 cup games in a row at Old Trafford.

 

United’s only domestic cup matches to be played away from home in the last three years were in a two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest and last season’s FA Cup semi-final as well as the final in both competitions at Wembley.

 

Holders Manchester City have been handed a home tie against Championship side Huddersfield, while Chelsea also have a home fixture against second-tier opposition in Preston.

 

There are all-Premier League ties between Tottenham and Burnley and Brentford and Wolves, along with Everton travelling to Crystal Palace.
