Fleetwood head coach Uwe Rosler says his men need to focus on getting the job done at Hereford before they can get excited about the potential return of ex-forward Jamie Vardy and his Leicester side in the FA Cup. More noteworthy perhaps is Brighton hosting Crystal Palace, a game that like Liverpool vs. Everton is a derby draw.

Premier League leaders Manchester City are at home to Burnley - the third and final all top-flight tie - and Manchester United are at home to Derby County. Last month's Premier League fixture between the two was marred by crowd trouble.

They face their bitter rivals next in the Premier League too, in what is now a precursor for the plumb FA Cup clash. Whatever the case, it's Everton against Liverpool at Anfield and set for the weekend of January 6th as the two local rivals enter the competition by facing off against each other. Non-league Hereford will welcome 2016 Premier League champions Leicester to Edgar Street provided they win their replay against Fleetwood.

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United host Championship outfit Derby County at Old Trafford, whereas last year's beaten finalists, Chelsea, make the trip to Norwich, while AFC Wimbledon get a taste of Wembley as they do battle with Tottenham, and League One high-flyers will look to stun David Moyes' West Ham.

Everton did eliminate the Reds from the tournament in 2009 when Dan Gosling scored the only goal of the game to settle a fourth round replay between sides.

The third round will be held January 6, 2018.
