United to host Roy's Reds in cup

BY foxsports • November 28, 2010

The bitter North-West rivals clash is the highlight - and the only all- Premier League tie - of the last-64 draw which was made at Wembley on Sunday. Fellow top-flight big guns Arsenal and Chelsea were granted home ties against Leeds and Ipswich respectively. The two non-league teams already through to round three were both handed away ties, with York travelling to Bolton after their win at Darlington and Huddersfield the destination for Dover, conquerors of Aldershot. Four other teams from outside the Football League took their places in the draw with their second-round ties yet to be decided. FC United of Manchester will host Portsmouth if they come through their replay against Brighton, while Crawley will tackle Swindon once more for the right to take on Derby. Droylsden, of the Blue Square Bet North Division, face League One Leyton Orient on Monday night with a trip to Norwich the prize for the winners - while Luton have the biggest incentive, with Tottenham awaiting at White Hart Lane if they can see off Charlton. Ten further ties will see top-flight sides meet opposition from the Championship, with draw-makers Serge Pizzorno and Noel Gallagher celebrating after the rock stars drew their respective teams, Leicester and Manchester City, together for a clash at the Walkers Stadium. Midlands sides Wolves, West Brom, Birmingham and Aston Villa all face tough away trips to Doncaster, Reading, Sheffield United and Millwall respectively, while Everton travel to Scunthorpe and Wigan face Hull at the KC Stadium. Stoke and Blackburn were drawn at home to second-tier high-fliers Cardiff and QPR, while West Ham host Barnsley, semi-finalists in 2008. Of the remaining Premier League sides, Fulham host Peterborough, Blackpool travel to Southampton and Sunderland await the winners of the clash between Notts County and Bournemouth while Newcastle travel to League Two Stevenage. Two all-Championship ties came out of the bag, with Coventry hosting Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest travelling to Preston.
