Arsenal have been drawn against Plymouth Argyle in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Devon outfit last visited the Gunners in the competition back in January 1987 when goals from Viv Anderson (2), Charlie Nicholas, David Rocastle, Paul Davis and Niall Quinn saw Arsenal run out easy 6-1 winners in front of 39,022 at Highbury.

Argle also lost 2-0 at Highbury in the Rumbelows Cup in September 1989 - before again losing 6-1 in the second leg with Michael Thomas netting a hat-trick at Home Park.

The tie will take place on the weekend of 3/4 January 2009.
