A third round Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton is the most eye-catching of the fixtures, but Leeds’ visit to Arsenal also looks tasty, as does Wolves against Manchester United.
Non-league Afc Fylde have also been rewarded with a visit to Premier League Sheffield United.20:24

MIDWEEK FIFTH ROUND
You might notice that March 4 is in fact a Wednesday and fifth round ties are being held on that day as a consequence of the forthcoming Premier League winter break.
Replays at the fifth round stage of the competition have also been scrapped.20:06
Fourth round: 25 January 2020
Fifth round: 4 March 2020
Quarter-finals: 21 March 2020
Semi-finals: 18-19 April 2020
Final: 23 May 2020
FIRST WEEKEND IN JANUARY
All of this season’s third round ties are set to take place across the weekend of January 3 and January 6.
FIVE NON LEAGUE TEAMS IN DRAW
All 20 Premier League teams and all 24 Championship clubs enter the competition in the third round proper.
National League side AFC Fylde went through to the third round after their win over Kingstonian at the weekend, and four other non-league sides – Boston United, Eastleigh, Hartlepool United and Solihull Moors – could join them.
Solihull host League One Rotherham United after the draw takes place as they seek to secure their place in the third round.
CITY BIDDING TO MAKE IT SEVEN
Manchester City won the FA Cup for a sixth time last season after an emphatic 6-0 win over Watford in the final.
They trail Liverpool in the Premier League by 11 points so the FA Cup could well be one of the most realistic paths to trophy success for them this season.
ADAMS AND RICHARDS CONDUCT DRAW
Ex-Manchester City defender Micah Richards – an FA Cup winner in 2011 – and former captain of record 13-time winners Arsenal – Tony Adams – are presiding over the draw this evening.
