Spurs have been handed a mouth-watering trip to arch rivals Arsenal in the third round of the FA Cup.

The North London clubs were paired together in arguably the pick of the round three ties which will be played on the weekend of January 4 and 5.

Tottenham have already played at the Emirates Stadium this season when an Olivier Giroud goal gave the Gunners a 1-0 victory at the start of September.

The last time the two clubs met in the FA Cup was in the 2001 semi-finals at Old Trafford when Arsenal came from behind to win 2-1.
