Arsenal to host Sunderland in FA Cup

The two sides met in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, with the Gunners recording a 3-1 victory, and last night’s third round draw paired the two clubs together again.

Part-timers Whitehawk have been handed a possible trip to Everton. The sixth-tier side, who are on their best run in the competition in their history, will make the trip to Goodison Park if they get through their second-round replay against Sky Bet League Two Dagenham & Redbridge at home.

The third-round draw, made in Cardiff, also sees Jurgen Klopp’s first FA Cup tie as Liverpool boss take him to League Two Exeter. Whitehawk were one of four non-league teams to feature in the draw. The lowest-ranked among them, Salford City, will host Championship high-fliers Derby if the seventh-tier outfit get past Hartlepool in their second-round replay.

As well as the Arsenal-Sunderland game, there are four other all-Premier League ties, with the pick seeing surprise leaders Leicester travelling to fifth-placed Tottenham.

The others are Norwich v Manchester City, Southampton v Crystal Palace and Watford v Newcastle.

Manchester United host League One Sheffield United and Chelsea will play the winner of Leyton Orient v Scunthorpe at Stamford Bridge.

Watford v Newcastle West Brom v Bristol City West Ham v Wolves Salford or Hartlepool v Derby Exeter v Liverpool Tottenham v Leicester Colchester v Charlton Peterborough v Preston Northampton v MK Dons Arsenal v Sunderland Newport v Blackburn Ipswich v Portsmouth Birmingham v Bournemouth Wycombe v Aston Villa Sheffield Wednesday v Fulham Oxford v Swansea Brentford v Chesterfield or Walsall Bury v Bradford Manchester United v Sheffield United Everton v Dagenham or Whitehawk Southampton v Crystal Palace Eastleigh v Bolton Nottingham Forest v QPR Carlisle v Yeovil Chelsea v Leyton Orient or Scunthorpe Doncaster v Stoke Leeds v Rotherham Cardiff v Grimsby or Shrewsbury Huddersfield v Reading Middlesbrough v Burnley Norwich v Manchester City Hull v Brighton
