If you want a list of all 32 FA Cup third round ties, then hop over to our separate story page which has all the details.

Can Clinton roll back the years?

Exeter v Liverpool

Former Crystal Palace striker Clinton Morrison knows a thing or two about scoring against Liverpool. He knocked one in against the Reds in the 2001 League Cup semi-final.

The 36-year-old Exeter forward also scored in their FA Cup second round win over Didcot. 

I know the lads will be buzzing with that draw most of the boys would have loved it to be away but it's a great game for the fans and boys

Gearing up for the third round

Ipswich v Portsmouth

Portsmouth, who were 2008 winners and also 2010 finalists, travel north-east to see the Tractor boys. Pompey winger Gary Roberts fancies it against Championship opponents Ipswich despite his team being fifth in League Two.

Cardiff the prize

Grimsby 0-0 Shrewsbury

In all the excitement, I completely forgot to remind you of the FA Cup second round game under way between non-league Grimsby and League One Shrewsbury. 

After 20 minutes it's 0-0, with a tie at Cardiff City the third-round prize. You can follow text updates right here.

I spy with my little eye something beginning with 0... and ending in 0... #MUFC #FACupDraw #bbcfacup twitter.com/BBCMOTD/status…

Chelsea V Leyton/Scunthorpe. I am going to go for an underdog win here. Willian to score the winning goal. #bbcfacup

Troy must be buzzing

Watford v Newcastle

Who did we get in the fa cup guys??

Where have you been Troy? It's one of five all-Premier League ties for the Hornets, who host Newcastle.

Upset in the offing?

Wycombe v Aston Villa

Wycombe midfielder Matt Bloomfield senses an upset and who can blame him. Aston Villa haven't won a game since their League Cup third round tie on 22 September. 

A Premier League team coming to Adams Park in the third round of the FA cup. Great stuff!

Dave, Suffolk: Dream dream for our house! Me Ipswich, the wife Pompey and our birthday weekend. Let's do this! The war begins...

James, Manchester: MUFC fan here and all wife's friends and family are Sheffield United fans. I suggest Van Gaal learns how to score goals fast or I'll never live it down.

How was your draw?

Exeter v Liverpool

All of a sudden, Exeter's media man is very popular....

...and my phone has already blown up with all of the requests for tickets! #ECFC #FACup

How was your draw?

#bbcfacup

And what of the other ties that might cause upsets....

League Two Exeter host Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. Should be an experience for the German.

Wycombe, also of League Two and who had that amazing run to the semi-finals in 2001, will get to entertain Remi Garde's Aston Villa, who are bottom of the Premier League. 

And League One Sheffield United travel to Manchester United. Tasty.

Everton v Whitehawk/Dagenham & Redbridge

Whitehawk manager Steve King: "I wanted the Reds but I got the Blues. But we ain't got the blues. It's a tough game to get through against Dagenham & Redbridge first because both teams will want to play that massive tie. It's 50-50, the best on the day goes through."

Of course, the punters will only be talking about 1 fixture. It's the one we've all been waiting for. Carlisle v Yeovil. #bbcfacup

Slade happy with draw

Cardiff City boss Russell Slade on his team hosting Grimsby or Shrewsbury in the FA Cup third round: "The cup ignores the level, it would be good to get my former team Grimsby."

Good for the non-leaguers

Non-league Eastleigh boss Chris Todd on his team's draw with Bolton. "It's a Championship team, we will be looking forward to that tie." 

Good for you?
