FA Cup third round draw: Arsenal draw Tottenham Hotspur in north London derby

Rivals last met in the competition in April 2001

Premier League leaders Arsenal were handed a home derby with Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup third round draw on Sunday. The north London neighbours, who have won the competition 18 times between them, last met in the Cup in 2001, when Arsène Wenger’s side prevailed 2-1 in an Old Trafford semi-final.

Manchester United were given a home tie at home to Swansea, while Chelsea must travel to in-form Derby County. Manchester City will also visit Championship opposition, Blackburn Rovers, and Liverpool will host either Oldham Athletic or Mansfield Town – both of whom they played in last season’s competition.

The holders Wigan Athletic, who overcame Manchester City in last season’s Wembley final, begin their defence of the trophy at home to MK Dons.

Of the non-league clubs still involved, Kidderminster were drawn against Peterborough, Grimsby face Huddersfield while Macclesfield entertain Sheffield Wednesday.  Wrexham will go to Charlton if they overcome Oxford United in the second round.

Tamworth and Cambridge both exited the second-round stage at home on Sunday, Nigel Clough’s Sheffield United winning 2-0 at Cambridge, while Tamworth went down 2-1 at home to Bristol City.
