Top-flight opposition for Utd, Blues



Manchester United, Arsenal and holders Chelsea were all handed ties with fellow Premier League sides in the draw for the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

Chelsea, winners of four of the last six tournaments, will travel to Southampton, while current league leaders United face an away game at West Ham United, who eliminated Alex Ferguson's side in the fourth round in 2001.

Arsenal, meanwhile, face a swift reunion with Swansea City, whose 2-0 success at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday bumped Arsene Wenger's men down to 10th place in the English top flight.

In the only other all-Premier League tie, Queens Park Rangers were drawn at home to West Bromwich Albion, with English champions Manchester City due to face second-division Watford.

Liverpool, runners-up to Chelsea last season, face an away game at either Lincoln City or Mansfield Town, two former league clubs who now play in the fifth-tier Conference National.

Tottenham Hotspur will play League One (third division) side Coventry City in a repeat of the 1987 final, which saw Coventry prevail through an extra-time own goal by Spurs defender Gary Mabbutt.

The ties are scheduled to be played on the weekend of January 7-8, 2013.
