LONDON (AP) - Manchester United will begin its defense of the FA Cup against second-tier Reading, which is managed by former United defender Jaap Stam.

The third-round draw, which sees the teams from England’s top two divisions join the competition, was made on Monday and there were four all-Premier League matchups, including Manchester City visiting West Ham.

Everton will host Leicester, Hull is at home to Swansea, and Burnley is away to Sunderland.

In other matches in the last 64, Arsenal visits second-tier Preston, Chelsea is at home to either Notts County or Peterborough, and Liverpool will host Newport or Plymouth.

The third round takes place from Jan. 6-9.
