    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.

    Oldham, who knocked out Everton, and Huddersfield, conquerors of Birmingham City, meet at Boundary Park - in a clash between two teams who sit side by side in the middle of the third division.

    Full fourth round draw:

    Arsenal v Stoke City / Newcastle United
    Coventry City v Walsall / Millwall
    Oldham Athletic v Huddersfield Town
    Swindon Town / Barnet v Fulham / Bristol Rovers
    Wigan Athletic v Chelsea
    Luton Town / Liverpool v Swansea / Havant & Waterlooville (ML)
    Southend United v Barnsley
    Southampton v Norwich City / Bury
    Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur / Reading
    Portsmouth v Plymouth Argyle
    Derby County / Sheffield Wednesday v Preston North End
    Watford v Wolverhampton Wanderers
    Peterborough United v Charlton Athletic / WestBromwich Albion
    Sheffield United v West Ham United / Manchester City
    Mansfield Town v Middlesbrough
    Tranmere Rovers / Hereford United v Cardiff City

    The ties will be tied over the weekend of January 26 -27.
