Swansea City will face Southampton in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Swans will host the Premier League Saints at the Swansea.com Stadium on the weekend of January 7-10.

The sides recently faced off in a pre-season friendly, but they have not met in a competitive fixture since May 2018 when a Southampton win in SA1 all-but sealed Swansea's relegation from the Premier League.

The clubs have never met in the FA Cup before. The Swans reached the fifth round last term, while Southampton were beaten at the semi-final stage by eventual winners Leicester.

The date, kick-off time and ticketing details for the fixture will be confirmed in due course.
