Full Story:

Premier League champions Manchester City will host Chelsea in the standout tie of the FA Cup third round.

Pep Guardiola’s side have already faced the Blues — who beat them in the 2021 UEFA Champions League final — in Carabao Cup action this season, with Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez on target to secure a 2-0 City victory at the Etihad Stadium.

The teams will now reconvene a matter of days after Mahrez again scored at Stamford Bridge in a 1-0 Premier League win on January 5.

Holders Liverpool also have a Premier League counterpart at home, with new Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui handed a daunting Anfield assignment.

Premier League leaders Arsenal, who were knocked out in round three by Nottingham Forest last season, face a trip to League One Oxford United.

FA Cup third-round prize money

Winning clubs will receive ?105,000 from the FA’s competition prize fund if they progress to round four.

This amounts to small change for the big boys of the Premier League, but can be a significant figure for clubs operating lower down the football pyramid.
