FA Cup third round draw - News

Chelsea are the current holders after beating Manchester United in last seasons final and Maurizio Sarri's men will begin the defence of their trophy against Championship side Nottinghm Forest at Stamford Bridge.

READING FC have been drawn against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United at Old Trafford in the FA Cup third round for the second time in three seasons.

Arsenal could play minor league side Solihull Moors, while London neighbours Tottenham Hotspur may face fellow minnows Southport.

And they will be hoping for a better result this time round after losing 4-0 at the famous ground at the same stage of the competition in January 2017.

"We beat Tranmere and then we beat Spurs", David Morgan, the Southport captain, said.

The 3rd round ties will be played the week commencing the 5th January 2019.

Solihull Moors have been handed a dream FA Cup third round draw against Premier League aristocrats Arsenal if they can get past Blackpool.

Woking face visiting Watford while Wrexham host another top-flight outfit in Leicester City.

Pompey have lost just once in the league this season, picking up 44 points from a possible 57 in the third tier so far.

The draw yielded two all-Premier League ties with Wolves welcoming Liverpool to Molineux and Bournemouth hosting Brighton.
