The draw gives Rafael Benitez's side a chance for revenge after losing 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium on November 12.

They also meet in the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup on December 19.

It was one of four all-Premiership ties, with Portsmouth at home to Wigan, Everton hosting Blackburn and Aston Villa travelling north to face Manchester United.

Paul Ince's Macclesfield, bottom of Coca-Cola League Two, got a plum draw against Premiership champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Ince revealed one of the first people he spoke to after the Silkmen landed the Premiership champions was Frank Lampard.

Former England international Ince will take his team, bottom of the Football League, to Stamford Bridge to face the Blues, who Ince beat in the final of this competition for Manchester United in 1994.

While it is a personal high for the Town boss, he admits he is disappointed Jonny Brain, Andrew Teague and Jimmy McNulty will miss the game having all suffered broken legs last week.

Ince said: 'I'm just delighted for the club but your first thought is about the lads that got injured and it's a shame they will miss it.

'But we'll take them down with us and make sure they're a big part of it.

'It'll help the club this year and next year and it'll be great for the fans.

'But you've got to be realistic and no-one will give us much of a chance down there.

'I've been on the phone to Frank Lampard and the banter has started already.'

Ince has so far been unable to play for Macclesfield as he featured for Swindon after the transfer window closed.

By the time the match in London comes around, he will be eligible to play although he accepts his players may have something to say if he immediately picks himself in an attempt to recreate his heroics against the Blues in 1994.

He continued: 'I was buzzing, as a manager, to draw Chelsea but then I started thinking that I can play.

'I'm not too sure what the lads would think about me putting myself straight in for a game like that but it's something to think about!

'I played in the final against Chelsea and they started the game well but we got a couple of goals up with a couple of (Eric) Cantona penalties.

'Towards the end I got through and I should have scored but I squared it and I wish I'd scored now.

'This is a great draw for us but I've got to say that the main priority is for us to stay in the league.'

Conference South side Salisbury will host Premiership strugglers Charlton if they come through a tough replay away to Nottingham Forest, the sides having drawn in Saturday's televised tie.

Salisbury boss Nick Holmes said: 'We have got a little job to do in 10 days' time (in the replay), it's certainly not going to be easy. We've had a good game today, we need to repeat that in 10 days' time and then we can talk about Charlton.'

Tamworth's reward for beating fellow Conference side Rushden & Diamonds is a home tie against Championship club Norwich at The Lamb.

Hereford were denied the chance to claim another big FA Cup scalp when they were drawn away to either Bristol Rovers or Bournemouth.

They famously upset top-flight Newcastle in 1972 and thrashed League One side Port Vale 4-0 in the second round.

Tottenham, who have won the FA Cup eight times, face a tricky trip to Championship high-flyers Cardiff while Birmingham host Newcastle at St Andrews.

Aldershot or Basingstoke will travel to face League One side Blackpool. Bolton will be wary of being on the wrong end of an upset, with a trip to either Mansfield or Doncaster to come.

It will be a busy weekend in Sheffield, with United at home to Swansea while Wednesday host Manchester City.

Middlesbrough are away to Championship strugglers Hull and Fulham must go to the Walkers Stadium to take on Leicester.

The ties will be played on the weekend of January 6 and 7.
