This weekend marks the arrival of the FA Cup third round; the first in which England's big boys are thrown into the mix, and the last in which we're likely to see a true giantkilling. There are a total of 32 games stretched over five days, with 44 teams entering the tournament from England's top two tiers, and 20 having qualified from previous rounds.

For fans of giantkillings, newly-managerless West Bromwich Albion play host to Gateshead on Saturday, while their fellow non-leaders Blyth Spartans host Birmingham City. At the same time, Championship high-flyers Derby welcome the Conference's Southport F.C. to Pride Park. On Sunday, two non-league sides face top-flight opposition, with Dover Athletic playing Crystal Palace, and Stoke City hosting Wrexham.

Another game worth keeping an eye on is Arsenal's game at home to Hull City on Sunday, in a rematch of last year's FA Cup final. A day later Liverpool travel to play League Two's AFC Wimbledon -- a side that rose from the ashes of the original Wimbledon F.C. after it was relocated to Milton Keynes.

Below is a full fixture list. All games kick off at 10 a.m. ET, unless otherwise noted.
