Holders Arsenal entertain Sunderland - who they beat 3-1 on Saturday - in the third round of the FA Cup following last night's draw.

It is one of five all-Premier League ties, with Manchester City going to Norwich, Spurs entertaining Leicester, Newcastle travelling to Watford and Southampton at home to Crystal Palace.

Chelsea will play the winners of the replay between Orient and Scunthorpe, and Manchester United were drawn at home to League One Sheffield United; Liverpool face a tricky trip to League Two Exeter.

Of the non-league clubs, Whitehawk have the enticing prize of a trip to Everton if they beat Dagenham in their replay. Eastleigh are at home to Neil Lennon's struggling Bolton and the lowest-ranked club in the draw, Salford, will welcome Derby to homely Moor Lane provided they see off Hartlepool.
