FA Cup: Leeds United handed Arsenal tie

Third round draw made.

Leeds United will play Premier League side Arsenal in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The game will take place at the Emirates Stadium over the weekend January 3-6.

Arsenal are the most successful side in the competition, having lifted the FA Cup on 13 occasions.

Leeds have lifted the FA Cup once, having beaten the Gunners 1-0 at Wembley in the final in 1972.

Our last meeting with Arsenal came in January 2012 in the FA Cup, with the Gunners running out 1-0 winners thanks to a strike from Thierry Henry.

Leeds also visited the Emirates Stadium in 2011, playing out a 1-1 draw as a late Cesc Fabregas penalty cancelled out a Robert Snodgrass spot kick.

Ticket details for this fixture will be announced in due course.
