FA Cup holders Arsenal will host Hull in a rematch of last season's final, as the draw for the third round was revealed on Monday.

Among other key fixtures, Liverpool will travel to AFC Wimbledon, who have only been in existence for 12 years. The previous incarnation of Wimbledon beat Liverpool in the 1988 final.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will travel to either League One side Yeovil Town or League Two's Accrington Stanley, who first face a replay set for December 16.

Premier League leaders Chelsea will stay at home to host Watford, while Manchester City host Sheffield Wednesday

In other all-Premier League clashes, Burnley host Tottenham, West Ham head to Everton, and Newcastle go to Leicester.

Sunderland host Leeds in a rematch of the 1973 final, won by the Wearside club.
