Liverpool travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers in an all-Premier League tie while Premier League leaders Manchester City are at home to Rotherham United at The Etihad Stadium.

Here at The Sportsman we will be keeping you bang up-to-date with all the action, as a couple of former winners of the prestigious cup competition, Ruud Gullit and Paul Ince, pluck each of the 64 balls out of the tub, alongside host Mark Chapman.

Non-league fans rejoice! There will be at least two teams in the third round in the form of Woking and Barnet while Southport, Wrexham and Solihull Moors have all forced second round replays against league opposition and so will be in the hat too.

Shrewsbury, who have appointed Sam Ricketts as boss, have seen off Salford City and Scunthorpe United to reach the third round stage for the fifth time in 23 attempts.

Tottenham, still seeking their first trophy under Mauricio Pochettino, face a trip to Merseyside against either Southport of the National League North or League Two Tranmere Rovers.

Everton were drawn to face Lincoln City.

The south coast side were promoted as League Two champions in 2017 and after finishing eighth in League One this season are now leading the way under the guidance of former Wolves boss Kenny Jackett.

The third round ties are scheduled for between January 4-7.

The Emirates FA Cup third round draw will take place this Monday night.
