Sunday's draw saw Manchester United handed a short away trip to League One side Wigan Athletic, while reigning champions Manchester City will host Huddersfield Town.

Chelsea will host Championship side Preston North End.

Wrexham, who enjoyed a fairy-tale run to the fourth round last season, will face Shrewsbury Town if they can beat Yeovil Town in their second-round clash later on Sunday.

Non-league Maidstone United, the lowest-ranked team guaranteed a place in the third round, are at home to either Stevenage or Port Vale.

Meanwhile, bitter rivals Newcastle United and Sunderland will go head-to-head at the Stadium of Light.

The FA Cup third round is scheduled to take place between Jan. 5-8. The final will take place on May 25.
