    Sunday's draw saw  Manchester United handed a short away trip to League One side Wigan Athletic, while reigning champions Manchester City will host Huddersfield Town.

    Chelsea will host Championship side Preston North End.

    Wrexham, who enjoyed a fairy-tale run to the fourth round last season, will face  Shrewsbury Town if they can beat Yeovil Town in their second-round clash later on Sunday.

    Non-league Maidstone United, the lowest-ranked team guaranteed a place in the third round, are at home to either Stevenage or Port Vale.

    Meanwhile, bitter rivals  Newcastle United and Sunderland will go head-to-head at the Stadium of Light.

    The FA Cup third round is scheduled to take place between Jan. 5-8. The final will take place on May 25.
