FA Cup third round: Marine host Tottenham, Liverpool face Aston Villa

Tottenham will take on non-league Marine in the third round of the FA Cup.

Jose Mourinho's Premier League leaders will face the eighth-tier club after their second-round victory over Havant & Waterlooville.

Holders Arsenal will host Newcastle United, while Liverpool travel to Aston Villa, where they lost 7-2 in the Premier League this season.

Manchester United and Manchester City have home games against Championship clubs, with the Red Devils hosting Watford and Pep Guardiola's team playing Birmingham City.

Chelsea are at home to League Two side Morecambe, Leeds United head to Crawley Town and fifth-tier side Stockport County will host West Ham.

The matches are scheduled to be played over the weekend of January 9 and 10. Due to the impact on the schedule of the coronavirus pandemic, extra time and penalties will be used to settle any ties that are level after 90 minutes, with the traditional replays scrapped.

The final is due to take place on May 15.
