FA Cup draw: Liverpool host Everton; Leeds travel to Arsenal

Date published: Monday 2nd December 2019 7:40

Liverpool will host Everton in the FA Cup third round, while Championship side Leeds United will travel to Arsenal in the pick of the ties.

Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League leaders will have home advantage in the cup Merseyside derby, which will take place between January 3-6.

Holders Manchester City landed a home tie against Port Vale, while Manchester United will visit Wolves, the club that knocked them out of last season’s competition at the quarter-final stage.

The draw, conducted at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium by Tony Adams and Micah Richards, landed dream opportunities for some of the non-league sides in the hat.

National League AFC Fylde will mark their first third-round appearance with a trip to Sheffield United, with National League North Boston hosting Newcastle if they beat Rochdale in a second-round replay.

Elsewhere, Eastleigh or Crewe will entertain Championship strugglers Barnsley, with Hartlepool going to Oxford if they get past Exeter, and Solihull Moors or Rotherham hosting Hull.

Arsenal, FA Cup winners on a record 13 occasions, face a potentially-testing encounter at home to Leeds.

And there were also tricky ties for West Ham, who visit Gillingham, and Norwich at Preston, which means a meeting with their former manager Alex Neil.

Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham go to Middlesbrough, and Aston Villa head to Craven Cottage, where Fulham await.
