Crawley Town have been drawn to play Leeds at home, while Bristol Rovers have been rewarded for thrashing Darlington 6-0 in the second round with a home tie against Sheffield United.

For the first time, Northern Premier League Division One North West side Marine will host Tottenham.

Another of the Non-League hopefuls, Chorley, have been handed a home tie also, against Wayne Rooney’s Derby County – currently bottom of the Championship.

Stockport, of the National League, have also been handed home advantage in their tie against West Ham.

The most mouth-watering tie of the round will see Premier League champions Liverpool  head to Aston Villa for their first meeting since the Reds were destroyed 7-2 at Villa Park earlier this season.

The ties will be played between January 8 and January 11, and, this year, in contrast to other years, there will be no replays.

As such, any ties that are level after 90 minutes will go to extra-time and, if necessary, penalties.
