Southampton's Under-18s have been drawn at home to Rotherham United in the third round of the FA Youth Cup.

A date for the tie will be set in due course, but all third round games must have taken place by Saturday 15th December.

Saints faced Wolves at this stage of the competition last year, running out 4-1 winners, with Michael Obafemi netting an impressive second-half hat-trick at St Mary's.

Holders Chelsea face a tough start to their respective Youth Cup campaign with an away trip to Manchester United, while last season's runners-up Arsenal kick-off their challenge at home to either Northampton Town or Swindon Town.
