Updated: December 04, 2011, 10:17

LONDON(AP) Manchester United will meet defending champion Manchester City in the FA Cup for a second straight season after the local rivals were drawn against each other in the third round.

City beat the record 11-time FA Cup holders 1-0 in last season's semifinal before ending its 35-year streak without a trophy in the final.

City will host the match on the weekend of Jan. 7-8.

The Premier League's leading sides all got lucky with home advantage. Tottenham will host unheralded Cheltenham, Arsenal will host Leeds, Chelsea will host Portsmouth and Liverpool will host the winner of Southend's second-round meeting with Oldham.

Nottingham Forest will host Leicester in another local derby set up by Sunday's draw.
