Manchester City will host Chelsea in an English domestic cup competition again in the FA Cup third round, while Manchester United take on Everton and holders Liverpool welcome Wolves.
The teams faced each in the Carabao Cup in November and will meet again at the Etihad Stadium in early January.
Elsewhere in the draw, 14-time winners Arsenal - a competition high - go to League One side Oxford United, while third-tier promotion hopefuls Portsmouth get a trip to Tottenham.
National League leaders Wrexham were given a Championship away day at Coventry City, while the other non-League sides in the draw - Boreham Wood and Chesterfield - will face home ties against Accrington Stanley and West Brom respectively.
Dagenham and Redbridge - the other team in the fifth tier of English football - will get a home draw against Premier League side Leicester City if they overcome their second-round replay against League Two Gillingham.
As well as Manchester United vs Everton and Liverpool vs Wolves, there were other all-Premier League ties in the form of Brentford hosting West Ham and Crystal Palace taking on Southampton.
Meanwhile, League Two side Stevenage, second in that division, get a top-flight day out at Unai Emery's Aston Villa.
