Arch rivals Manchester City and Manchester United will face each other in the tie of the FA Cup third round.

United will make the trip to Etihad Stadium looking to avenge October's 6-1 drubbing at the hands of City.

Elsewhere, Arsenal meet Leeds, Bristol Rovers will host Aston Villa while in-form Tottenham face Cheltenham Town.

Non-League side Tamworth travel to Everton, Wrexham face Brighton and Fleetwood will play Blackpool if they beat Yeovil in a replay.

The clash of Manchester giants City and 11-time FA Cup winners United is the stand out tie of the draw - with the teams sitting first and second respectively in the Premier League table.
