Man United to host Liverpool in FA Cup


Manchester United will host Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

United booked their place in the fourth round with a 1-0 win over Watford on Saturday night and Monday's draw saw them paired with the reigning Premier League champions, who overcame Aston Villa in the last round.

Defending champions Arsenal face the winners of the third round tie between Shrewsbury and Southampton, which was postponed due to a number of positive Covid-19 tests in the Shrewsbury camp.

Tottenham face a trip to Wycombe Wanderers, while Manchester City are also away from home after being drawn against League Two side Cheltenham.

Crawley Town knocked Leeds out in the third round and their reward is a trip to Bournemouth, with non-League Chorley facing Wolves before a potential clash with Arsenal.

The draw for the fifth round also took place on Monday night with the winners of the game between Manchester United and Liverpool up against the winners of the tie between West Ham or Doncaster.

Chelsea could face Barnsley or Norwich if they overcome Luton in the fourth round, while Everton or Sheffield Wednesday will host either Tottenham or Wycombe.

The fourth round ties will take place the weekend of January 22-25, while the fifth round will be played midweek of the week commencing February 8.
