The FA Cup third round draw yielded two all-Premier League ties with Wolves welcoming Liverpool to Molineux and Bournemouth hosting Brighton.

Cardiff will travel to League One Gillingham, while Newcastle face Championship Blackburn at St James' Park and Crystal Palace are at home to League Two Grimsby.

North London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal have been handed trips to lower league opposition.

Spurs, who lost Sunday's Premier League derby at the Emirates Stadium 4-2, will travel to either League Two Tranmere or National League North Southport.

Unai Emery and his Gunners are on the road too, and will play the winners of the second round replay between National League Solihull Moors and League One Blackpool.

National League Wrexham will also host Premier League opposition in the shape of 2016 champions Leicester, if they can get past League Two Newport.

Watford will also hope to avoid a giant-killing act when they head to National League South side Woking.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea were handed home draws against Championship trio Reading, Rotherham and Nottingham Forest respectively, while League Two Lincoln will travel to top-flight Everton.

Cardiff will travel to League One Gillingham, while Newcastle face Championship Blackburn at St James' Park and Crystal Palace are at home to League Two Grimsby.

Championship side Birmingham head for West Ham, with Burnley taking on League One Barnsley at Turf Moor.
