Swansea City will play Championship rivals Aston Villa in round three of the Emirates FA Cup.

The Swans will travel to Birmingham to face Dean Smith's Villa side on the weekend of January 4-6.

Graham Potter's men have already been to Villa Park once this season, having lost 1-0 in Smith's first game in charge in October.

The Swans reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup last season – their best run in the competition since 1963-64 – thanks to victories over Wolves, Notts County and Sheffield Wednesday.

Carlos Carvalhal’s team were beaten by Tottenham in the last eight.

Ticket details for the Villa game will follow in due course.
