FA Cup third round draw
Holders Arsenal face a potentially tricky tie away at fellow top-flight side Leeds in the third round of the FA Cup, and there are four more all-Premiership ties.

Last season's finalists Southampton face a tough test against Newcastle and Manchester City will host Leicester City.

Birmingham will play Blackburn, who beat them 4-0 at St Andrews in the league on Saturday, while struggling Aston Villa are set to entertain Manchester United, who have won the competition a record 10 times.

Premiership leaders Chelsea have been drawn away at Division One side Watford, while Liverpool are away at legendary giantkillers Yeovil, now a Division Three side.

Eight-times winners Tottenham have home advantage in a London derby against 1990 finalists Crystal Palace.

High-flying Fulham will entertain Division Three side Cheltenham, and Conference team Telford's reward for seeing off Brentford is a trip to Dario Gradi's Crewe.

Conference side Scarborough, who claimed the scalp of Second Division outfit Port Vale on Sunday, face a trip to Southend.
