BLACKPOOL and Fleetwood Town have been drawn together in the third round of the FA Cup.

A victory for Micky Mellon’s men in their second round replay against Yeovil a week on Tuesday would see them face the Seasiders at Highbury in January.

Elsewhere, Manchester City and Manchester United will meet in the other stand-out tie of the round.

City will welcome their arch-rivals to the Etihad Stadium still revelling in their 6-1 league triumph at Old Trafford in October.

The tie was one of only two all-Premier League affairs to emerge from this afternoon’s draw, with Newcastle hosting Blackburn in the other.

The draw for the third round of the FA Cup is as follows:

Middlesbrough v Shrewsbury

Nottingham Forest v Leicester

Manchester City v Manchester United

Dagenham & Redbridge/Walsall v Millwall

Crawley v Bristol City

Doncaster v Sutton United/Notts County

Bristol Rovers v Aston Villa

Tottenham v Cheltenham

Sheffield Wednesday v West Ham

MK Dons v QPR

Hull v Ipswich

Coventry v Southampton

Brighton v Wrexham

Fulham v Charlton

Birmingham v Wolves
