Manchester United get Liverpool in FA Cup third round

Joe Cole and Paul Scholes
Man Utd v Liverpool is the only all-Premier League tie of the third round

Manchester United will face bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup.

It is the only all-Premier League tie in a draw that also sees Leeds travel to Arsenal, holders Chelsea face Ipswich and Stevenage play Newcastle.

Sven-Goran Eriksson's Leicester host his former club Manchester City, while non-league York and Dover are away at Bolton and Huddersfield respectively.

The ties will be played over the weekend of 8/9 January 2011.

The stand-out tie at Old Trafford will be the ninth post-war meeting between Manchester United and Liverpool in the competition, with the Red Devils victorious in seven of the previous eight.


However, the last time they met, in a fifth-round tie in 2006, seven-time Cup winners Liverpool recorded their first FA Cup win over United in 85 years courtesy of a single Peter Crouch goal.

Newcastle's trip to Stevenage is a repeat of the 1998 fourth-round tie, when then-non-league Borough held United to a 1-1 draw at home before losing 2-1 in the replay at St James' Park.

Three other teams from outside the Football League took their places in the draw with their second-round ties yet to be decided.

FC United of Manchester will host Portsmouth if they come through their replay against Brighton, while Crawley will tackle Swindon again for the right to take on Derby.

Droylsden, of the Blue Square North Division, face League One Leyton Orient on Monday with a trip to Norwich the prize for the winners.
