FA Cup: Welsh clubs learn FA Cup third-round opponents

Liverpool draws EPL rival Wolves in FA Cup 3rd round

Liverpool draws EPL rival Wolves in FA Cup 3rd round

So all the Premier League big guns have been kept apart and they'll be confident of progressing to the next phase of the competition.

Holders Chelsea will begin their FA Cup defence with a home tie against Nottingham Forest, while Arsenal could face non-league opposition in the third round.

The draw takes place on Monday 4 December at 7.30pm.

Tottenham haven't won a trophy since lifting the League Cup in 2008 and haven't won the FA Cup since 1991 so Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate to try and go all the way this season.

Woking, one of two non-league sides guaranteed to be in the third round, will host Premier League team Watford.

Bournemouth and Brighton were also paired in the draw held at the Stamford Bridge home of defending champions Chelsea. Our chairman, Clive Nates, actually Everton is his second team, so he'll be quite pleased with that as well, I'd suggest.

Spurs, who lost Sunday's Premier League derby at the Emirates Stadium 4-2, will travel to either League Two Tranmere or National League North Southport.

Elsewhere, Leeds travel to QPR, Sheffield United host Barnet and city rivals Sheffield Wednesday welcome Luton to Hillsborough, and West Brom entertain Wigan, Middlesbrough play Peterborough or Bradford and Swansea head for Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, Sunderland or Walsall will face Bolton Wanderers in the third round of the FA Cup.
