Aston Villa will have an opportunity to erase the memory of their Carling Cup defeat to Burnley last season when they meet the same opposition at the same stage of the competition next month.

Villa lost 3-1 at Turf Moor in the third round on October 26, 2004 and produced one of their worst displays since David O'Leary took charge as manager.

This time, the match is at Villa Park and O'Leary, whose team defeated Wycombe Wanderers 8-3 away last week, has strengthened his squad significantly since the defeat to Burnley.

Birmingham City, who won away to Scunthorpe United, have been drawn at home to Norwich City in a match that will evoke memories of the First Division playoff final in May 2002.

West Bromwich Albion, who defeated Bradford City at home, face a tricky tie away to Fulham.

The most romantic pairing sees Manchester United play at home to Barnet of the Coca-Cola League Two, while Chelsea, the holders, are at home to Charlton Athletic.

Liverpool, the runners-up last season, have been drawn away to Crystal Palace, whom they defeated in the semi-finals on their way to winning the trophy in 2003.
