United handed Villa test

02 Dec 2007 - 15:43:48

Manchester United will face Aston Villa in one of four all Premier League ties in the third round of the FA Cup.

Last year's beaten finalists will travel to the Midlands to face in-form Villa on the weekend of January 5 & 6.

The tie is a repeat of the same stage last year when Sir Alex Ferguson's side triumphed 2-1 at Old Trafford following a 90th minute Ole Gunnar Solskjaer winner.

It is the fourth time in seven seasons the two clubs have been paired together in the FA Cup.

Elsewhere in the other all top-flight ties, Tottenham will host Reading, Sunderland will welcome Wigan Athletic to the Stadium of Light and West Ham will face Manchester City.

Premier League leaders Arsenal face a difficult trip to Burnley to take on the resurgent Championship side, while holders Chelsea have been handed a home clash with fellow London side Queens Park Rangers.

Meanwhile, Havant & Waterlooville's reward for dumping Notts County out at the second round stage is a trip to either fellow non-league side Horsham or Swansea City.

Liverpool will travel to either Nottingham Forest or Luton Town, while Charlton Athletic versus West Bromwich Albion is one of several high-profile all Championship clashes.
