The FA Cup third round draw has thrown up some treats with Manchester United being handed a trip to arch-rivals Manchester City.

The ties will be played on the weekend of January 7-8 and United will get a chance for a measure of revenge as City knocked them out in the semifinals of the tournament last year before thrashing them at home 6-1 in the league earlier this season.

2005 tournament winners Arsenal will face Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium, while Chelsea have been handed a relatively easy tie against Portsmouth.

Liverpool will host the winners of the second-round match between Southend and Oldham whereas Tottenham will face League-two side Cheltenham at White Hart Lane.
