    Havant and Waterlooville, the last remaining minor league club in the England's FA Cup, could have a dream fourth-round tie with Liverpool if both sides get through their third-round replays.

    Havant held League One leaders Swansea 1-1 away in their first appearance in the third round on Saturday, while Liverpool could only draw 1-1 at League Two Luton Town.

    Holders Chelsea are away to Wigan Athletic, Manchester United, record 11-times winners, host Tottenham Hotspur or Reading while Arsenal are at home to Stoke City or Newcastle United.
