Reds draw Mancs at home in FA Cup

Liverpool have been drawn at home to face Manchester United in the FA Cup 5th round draw.

One of Liverpool’s biggest rivals, it was Reds legend Ian Rush that drew the American-owned club’s number out of the bag at FA headquarters.

No doubt the game will be picked as one of the games for live TV coverage, being arguably the tie of the round.

Liverpool and United have played many memorable cup ties against each other, and most recently met at Old Trafford on the day Gary Neville celebrated United’s winner in a way condemned by most, denied by him, and subject to an FA charge.

Neither side will be able to honestly say that they would relish this fixture.

Full Draw:  

Preston or Crystal Palace v Coventry or Middlesbrough

Newcastle v Southampton

Aston Villa v Manchester City

Everton or Chelsea v Colchester

Charlton v Brentford

Liverpool v Manchester United

Bolton v West Ham

Stoke v Reading or Birmingham

Ties to be played on Saturday 18th February and Sunday 19th February.
