FA Cup draw: Non-league trip prospects for Arsenal and Spurs

Date published: Monday 3rd December 2018 9:52

North London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal have been handed FA Cup third round trips to lower league opposition.

Spurs, who lost Sunday’s Premier League derby at the Emirates Stadium 4-2, will travel to either League Two Tranmere or National League North Southport.

The Gunners are on the road too, with the winners of the second round replay between National League Solihull Moors and League One Blackpool waiting in the wings.

National League Wrexham will also host Premier League opposition in the shape of 2016 champions Leicester, if they can get past League Two Newport.

Watford will also hope to avoid a giant-killing act when they head to National League South side Woking.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea were handed home draws against Sky Bet Championship trio Reading, Rotherham and Nottingham Forest respectively, while League Two Lincoln will travel to top-flight Everton.

The draw yielded two all-Premier League ties with Wolves welcoming Liverpool to Molineux and Bournemouth hosting Brighton.

Cardiff will travel to League One Gillingham, while Newcastle face Championship Blackburn at St James’ Park and Crystal Palace are at home to League Two Grimsby.

Managerless Southampton have been drawn away to Frank Lampard’s promotion-chasing Derby, while Fulham welcome League Two Oldham to Craven Cottage and Championship side Birmingham head for West Ham, with Burnley taking on League One Barnsley at Turf Moor.
