LONDON (AP) - Defending champion Arsenal will host Hull in the third round of the FA Cup in a repeat of last season’s final.

There were two other all-Premier League matches when teams from English football’s top two divisions joined Monday’s draw, with Everton at home to West Ham and Newcastle away to Leicester.

Premier League teams Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion were drawn against non-league sides Dover and Gateshead, respectively. Seventh-tier Blyth Spartans, the lowest-ranked team in the draw, is at home to second-tier Birmingham.

Premier League leader Chelsea is at home to Watford, Manchester City hosts Sheffield Wednesday, and Manchester United will be away to fourth-tier Accrington or third-tier Yeovil.

The matches will be played in the first weekend of January.
