Premier League leaders Arsenal will play North London rivals Tottenham in the third round of the FA Cup after the draw was made on Sunday.

The tie will take place at the Emirates Stadium on the weekend beginning January 4.

David Moyes was not handed a favourable tie, with Manchester United drawn to host fellow top-flight outfit Swansea. Manchester City will travel to Blackburn while Liverpool will welcome either Oldham or Mansfield to Anfield.

Elsewhere, holders Wigan will play MK Dons at the DW Stadium while Chelsea will travel to Derby. Gus Poyet's Sunderland will face Carlisle at the Stadium of Light, Aston Villa play Sheffield United at Villa Park and Norwich take on Fulham in an all Premier League tie.

The four remaining non-league outfits were not rewarded with money-spinning ties with Premier League clubs, as Macclesfield drew Sheffield Wednesday and Kidderminster were paired with Peterborough. Wrexham will travel to the Valley to play Charlton if they beat Oxford on Monday, while Grimsby Town host Huddersfield in their third round tie.
