The draw for the FA Cup third round took place on Monday night - and we will visit Championship side Preston North End.
We last met the Lilywhites in October 1999, with strikes from Nwankwo Kanu and Stefan Malz seeing us emerge as 2-1 victors in a League Cup third-round tie at Highbury.
Our first meeting with Preston in over 17 years will take place at Deepdale, with the fixture to be played between January 6 and January 9, 2017.
Ticketing information will be available on Arsenal.com in due course.
