FA Cup draw offers chance of giant killings
Northampton’s and MK Dons have a big prize to fight for in their FA Cup third round replay, with Chelsea lying in wait for the winners, while FA Cup holders Arsenal will entertain Burnley in the fourth round.
Manchester United were sent to Derby with Manchester City told to pitch up at either League Two club Wycombe or Aston Villa, who drew 1-1 on Saturday.
Liverpool were held to a 2-2 draw by Exeter and the winner of that replay will entertain West Ham. Vanarama National League outfit Eastleigh, the lowest ranked team left in the competition, will host Championship side Leeds if they can see off Bolton at Ten Acres.
Harry Kane's late penalty kept Tottenham in the competition and if Spurs can do the business against Leicester in their replay, a journey to Colchester awaits.
Crystal Palace tackle Stoke in a rare all-Premier League tie while Oxford, who knocked Swansea out on Sunday, must wait to discover if they will host their League Two rivals Newport, or Blackburn.
If West Brom manage to get past Bristol City they will welcome Peterborough, Everton are tasked with visiting either Carlisle or Yeovil from the fourth tier and Watford travel north to Nottingham Forest.
Bournemouth complete the top-flight contingent and could enjoy a short trip to Fratton Park if Portsmouth can overcome Ipswich.
Other ties see Huddersfield or Reading hosting Walsall, Shrewsbury entertaining Sheffield Wednesday and Hull going west to either Bury or Bradford.
The fourth-round fixtures will be played between January 29 and February 1.
