wigan-FA-Cup-WinnerThe FA Cup third-round draw has handed Arsenal a north London derby with neighbors Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium after the draw was made on Sunday afternoon at Wembley.

Elsewhere, Manchester United host Swansea City at Old Trafford—while Manchester City and Chelsea have potentially tricky away trips to Blackburn Rovers and Derby, respectively.

Cup holders Wigan Athletic were given a home draw against Milton Keynes Dons while Liverpool will host Oldham Athletic—who famously beat them 3-2 in the fourth round of last season’s competition.

Other than the eagerly anticipated north London derby and the fixture at Old Trafford, there were three further all-Premier League ties; West Brom are at home to Crystal Palace, Newcastle United host Cardiff City and Norwich meet Fulham at Carrow Road.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez, looking to win the FA Cup for a second successive season, will take on QPR at Goodison Park.
