Norwich City will travel to Turf Moor to face Burnley in the FA Cup fourth round.
The draw was made live on BBC One this evening, with former Leeds manager David O'Leary and ex-England women's international Alex Scott conducting the draw. The winner of the tie will pocket £180,000 in prize money, with the fixture to be played on the weekend of January 24-27.
The tie will be sandwiched between successive Premier League away trips for the Canaries, with City facing Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, January 22 and then travel to St James' Park to play Newcastle United on February 1.
City progressed to the fourth round of the competition with a 4-2 win over Alex Neil's Preston North End, with 18-year-old Adam Idah netting a hat-trick in only his second appearance of the season.
Onel Hernandez became the first Cuban to score in the FA Cup after his effort wriggled underneath the Lilywhites 'keeper Connor Ripley. City boss Daniel Farke made eight changes to his side, with Idah replacing the injured Teemu Pukki.

The sides have only met each other once in the competition, with that tie coming back in 2012 at Carrow Road where City ran out 4-1 winners over then boss Eddie Howe's side. That victory is City's only win over the Clarets in all competitions since April 2008.
Grant Holt, Steve Morison, Andrew Surman and Simeon Jackson netted for the Canaries in that FA Cup victory, with Rodriguez on-target for Burnley. City went on to get knocked out at the fifth round stage that year, eventually being beaten by Leicester City.
The last time that City reached this stage of the competition was in the 2012/13 season, where they were beaten 1-0 at Carrow Road by then non-league side Luton Town. Farke's men will be looking to book their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup for the first time in eight years.
