Man Utd draw Man City in FA Cup Third Round

Manchester United have drawn Manchester City in the third round of the FA Cup.

City will welcome their arch-rivals to the Etihad Stadium still revelling in their 6-1 league triumph at Old Trafford in October.

The tie was one of only two all-Premier League affairs to emerge from Sunday afternoon's draw, with Newcastle hosting Blackburn in the other.

Arsenal will host npower Championship Leeds in a repeat of the 1972 final, while Blue Square Conference Tamworth's reward for their 2-1 second-round win at Gateshead is a trip to top-flight Everton.

Chelsea boss Andre Villa-Boas' first taste of the FA Cup will come at home to Championship side Portsmouth, who beat Cardiff in the 2008 final.

Aston Villa face a trip to League Two Bristol Rovers, who earned their place in the third round with a 6-1 demolition of Southern Premier Division AFC Totton at Testwood Park on Sunday.

Harry Redknapp's Tottenham will also entertain opposition from League Two as Cheltenham head for White Hart Lane, while Liverpool will await the outcome of the second-round replay between Southend and Oldham to discover their opponents.
