Red Devils and Liverpool paired together; Leeds go to the Emirates

The FA Cup third round draw has thrown up a few mouth-watering encounters, including Manchester United at home to Liverpool. The two North West giants have taken the trophy on 18 times between them and will rekindle their fierce rivalry at Old Trafford in the only all Premier League tie. United were stunned on home soil by Leeds at this stage of the competition last season and the Whites will have their sights set on another prized scalp when they go to Arsenal. Elsewhere, cup holders Chelsea are set to face Roy Keane's Ipswich at Stamford Bridge. Manchester City face a trip to Sven Goran Eriksson's Leicester and Tottenham will host Charlton or Luton. FC United of Manchester still have to see off Brighton in a replay if their dream run is to continue, but the reward for either side will be a home date with Portsmouth. Crawley could also find themselves at home in the next round, with Derby lying in wait if they can make it past Swindon. Of the other non-league sides, Dover head to League One high-fliers Huddersfield and York face a trip to top flight Bolton.
