Northern Premier League side Marine will play Jose Mourinho’s Premier League leaders Tottenham in the third round of the FA Cup.

Marine are just the second eighth-tier side to reach the third round.

National League North side Chorley will host Wayne Rooney’s Derby, while holders Arsenal host Newcastle and Liverpool head to Aston Villa in a repeat of the 2015 semi-final.

The ties will be played over the weekend of 8-11 January, 2021.

“It’s an unbelievable draw,” Marine boss Neil Young told BBC One.

“We will plan as best we can. Usually with Jose’s teams, he puts pretty strong sides out. We have won seven games to get here and this is a great reward.”

Stockport, of the National League, have been handed home advantage in their tie against West Ham while Manchester United are at home to Championship side Watford.
