The Cobblers defeated West Brom on penalties in the previous round and will be hoping to inflict another Cup upset when the Red Devils visit Sixfields.

On-loan Swansea winger, and former Manchester United academy player, Kenji Gorre, seemed delighted with the draw.

Accrington Stanley’s win over Burnley means they’ve earned an away trip to the London Stadium to face West Ham, for what will be the first domestic cup game played at the Hammers’ new home.

Scorer of Stanley’s extra-time winner, Matty Pearson, seemed happy with the prospect of facing another top division side in the next round.

Nottingham Forest captain Henri Lansbury will get the chance to face former club Arsenal when they travel to the City Ground in Round Three.

The Forest skipper spent five years with the Gunners, and made his professional debut for the club.

Another potential upset could be found at White Hart Lane when Gillingham travel to Tottenham Hotspur. It’s sure to be a special fixture for Gills manager Justin Edinburgh...
There will be five all-Championship, and four all-Premier League ties in Round Three.
