Manchester United have been drawn against Liverpool in the FA Cup. They will meet at Old Trafford in the undoubted tie of the third round.
Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson said: "I think it will be a good game and it is one we will look forward to. In many ways it is a shame to see two Barclays Premier League teams face each other so early on in the competition, but it will be a difficult game for them as well as for us."
Meanwhile, Leicester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson will be given the chance to face former club Manchester City at the Walkers Stadium, while Arsenal host Championship side Leeds, who secured a memorable upset at Old Trafford in the third round last season.
Holders Chelsea have a home tie against Roy Keane's Ipswich, while Tottenham will play either Charlton. Stevenage play Newcastle in a repeat of the famous fourth round clash of 1998.
Brighton have been rewarded with a home tie against Portsmouth, while minnows Dover travel to League One side Huddersfield. Conference National team York have an away day at Bolton.
The ties will be played on January 8, 9 and 10.
