Fulham Football Club Fulham have been drawn away against Norwich City in the third round of the FA Cup.

The draw was made at Wembley by former England and Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham and his son Charlie, who won the FA Youth Cup with Ipswich Town and now plays for AFC Wimbledon in League Two.

The ties are due to be played on the weekend of January 4 and 5, which means the Cottagers will visit Carrow Road twice in 10 days, as they travel to Norfolk for a Premier League fixture on Boxing Day.

Fulham have a good record at Carrow Road and have not lost a match in Norfolk since March 1986, winning four and drawing two of their six visits since that 2-1 loss to City.

In fact the Cottagers could be considered something of a bogey team as the Canaries have not managed to beat them in their last 12 attempts, with Fulham winning nine of those matches.

City went out of the FA Cup in the fourth round last year, suffering an embarrassing 1-0 home defeat to Luton Town, becoming the first top flight team to lose to a non-league team in the FA Cup since 1989.

Elsewhere Arsenal were handed a mouthwatering tie against north London rivals Tottenham in the third round of the FA Cup.

Arsenal's most recent piece of silverware came in the 2005 FA Cup but if they are to repeat that success this season they will have to overcome Spurs at the first hurdle after the two sides were paired together in the pick of Sunday's draw.
