Fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace have also been given a home tie, with League Two Hartlepool United set to travel to the capital after they came back from behind to beat Blackpool 2-1.

Southampton will welcome Coventry City to St Mary's as the Saints look to celebrate their recent takeover with a historic cup run.

Forest set up Leicester clash

There was the potential for four all-Premier League ties in this year's fourth round, with the pick of the games potentially taking place at the Emirates Stadium.

Wolves extended their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions by beating Sheffield United 3-0 on Sunday and their reward is another home draw against fellow Premier League side Norwich City.
