    Liverpool to face Everton in FA Cup third round

    Joe Jones

    The draw for the third round of the FA Cup has thrown up a number of interesting fixtures including three derbies.

    Liverpool, seven-time winners of the competition, will host city rivals Everton - who have won the cup five times - at Anfield.

    The 'M23 derby' between Brighton and Crystal Palace was contested in the Premier League for the first time last week and the duo will square off once again at the Amex Stadium.

    The Riverside Stadium, meanwhile, will host the Tees-Wear derby against fellow Championship side Sunderland.

    Current FA Cup holders Arsenal face a trip to Championship side Nottingham Forest while Manchester United will welcome Derby County to Old Trafford.

    Premier League leaders Manchester City were drawn at home to Burnley and last season's beaten finalists Chelsea will be away at Norwich City.

    Ties will take place on the weekend of 6-7 January 2018.
