Arsenal host Spurs in FA Cup

The FA Cup third-round draw has handed Arsenal a north London derby with neighbours Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium.

Last Updated: 23/12/13 at 17:11 Post Comment

Cup holders Wigan Athletic were given a home draw with Milton Keynes Dons while last year's beaten finalists Manchester City will go to Blackburn Rovers.

Of the non-league sides, Macclesfield were drawn at home to Sheffield Wednesday, Grimsby will take on Huddersfield Town at Blundell Park and Kidderminster have a home tie against Peterborough.

Manchester United face Swansea City at Old Trafford while Chelsea will travel to Derby County.

Liverpool will face a home tie against either Mansfield, who they beat in the third round last season, or Oldham Athletic, who knocked them out in the fourth.

But the stand out tie is the north London derby and both sides will be hoping to go all the way. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger concedes his side could have been handed an easier first hurdle.

"There are not enough tough games, they gave us another one," he quipped when asked about the draw following Arsenal's 1-1 league tie with Everton, a result that left the Gunners five points clear at the top of the standings.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea have also not been handed a straightforward third-round tie as they must go to a Derby side who have moved up to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship after winning their past five matches.

Derby manager Steve McClaren said on his club's website: "It's a great draw for the club for a number of reasons. It's at home, we're up against a big opponent and that will mean a big test for the players.

"They will want to test themselves against one of the best teams in the country and Europe so I think it's great for them.

"It's exciting for the fans too and I'm sure a great crowd will be at the iPro Stadium for it as well as it should be a cracking FA Cup tie."

ou know who else Adidas has a deal with? United. You know who else seems to have no qualms in paying buttloads of cash for and to players? United. It's just as likely he could go to United as he could go to Chelsea. Which is to say it's not likely in the slightest.

ever mind Flamini; I think its an even bigger weekend for Ramsey to find some semblance of the form that kept us in with a shout last season and had rags and some commentators (this website included) decrying him as one of the world's best midfielders.
