Manchester United will take on Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup as Ralf Rangnick looks to end the club's lengthy trophy drought during his interim spell.


Villa have already won at Old Trafford this term and will be looking to repeat the feat.

Liverpool will host Shrewsbury Town and Arsenal take on Nottingham Forest.

The last time the Gunners went to the City Ground in the FA Cup they were dumped out in what was a major upset back in 2018, Arsene Wenger's last ever FA Cup tie.

Chelsea, last year's losing finalists, play non-league Chesterfield.

Pep Guardiola, who has only won the FA Cup once, back in 2019 when he completed a domestic treble, will prepare Manchester City for a trip to Swindon Town.

Holders Leicester City will face fellow Premier League side Watford.

Antonio Conte's Tottenham side host League One Morecambe seeking a first FA Cup success since 1991.
