Holders of the English FA Cup Arsenal will begin the defence of the trophy when they will face fellow Premier League side Sunderland in the third round.
In the draw that was held on Monday, Arsenal will welcome Sunderland at the Emirates. Both teams met in the league on Saturday, with Arsenal winning 3-1.
Mikel Obi's struggling Chelsea were provided with an easy draw as they will host one of Leyton Orient or Scunthorpe at the Stamford Bridge.
At Carrow Road, Nigerian youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho, should get a runout just like in the Capital One Cup when Norwich City welcome 2011 FA Cup champions Manchester City.
Eleven times winners, Manchester United, will do battle with Sheffield United at Old Trafford, Exeter will host Liverpool while West Brom and Bristol City will clash at the Hawthorns.
In other fixtures Odion Ighalo's Watford will entertain Newcastle at Vicarage Road, Tottenham Hotspur will welcome high-flying Leicester City at White Hart Lane, Southampton and Crystal Palace will square off at St Mary's, and Carl Ikeme's Wolverhampton Wanderers will be guests to Victor Moses West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground.
The FA Cup ties will be played in the weekend of 8-11 January 2016.
