FA Cup third round fixtures announced

Manchester United will take on Watford FC while Tottenham Hotspur will face Northern Premier League minnows Marine FC in the third round of the FA Cup.

Cheers could be heard from local houses in the BBC’s live coverage of the third round draw from Marine’s home ground when the non-league team were paired up with Premier League leaders Tottenham.

Marine manager Neil Young told BBC One, “It’s an unbelievable draw. We will plan as best we can. Usually with Jose’s teams, he puts pretty strong sides out. We have won seven games to get here and this is a great reward.”

Elsewhere in the draw, there are two all-Premier League clashes. FA Cup champions Arsenal will take on Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium, while Premier League champions Liverpool will travel to Birmingham to play Aston Villa.

Wayne Rooney’s Derby County will play non-league club Chorley FC.
