BBC reveals TV Cup ties
Manchester City's FA Cup third round tie against Liverpool will be broadcast live on BBC Television.

The match takes place on Sunday, 5 January and kicks off at 1300 GMT.

A day earlier, on 4 January, Tottenham's visit to Southampton will be screened live at 1745 GMT.

The BBC's Match of the Day programme will feature highlights of the third round on Saturday evening.

The other four all-Premiership ties see Chelsea against Middlesbrough, Bolton take on Sunderland, Fulham play Birmingham, and Aston Villa tackle Blackburn.

Holders Arsenal are at home to Third Division Oxford, while Manchester United will play Portsmouth.

Pompey manager Harry Redknapp led West Ham to a famous FA Cup victory over Sir Alex Ferguson's side in 2001.

Morecambe will travel to Ipswich, with Nationwide Conference rivals Dagenham & Redbridge facing a trip to Plymouth and Farnborough heading to Darlington.

Leeds must travel to the winners of next week's Scunthorpe replay, while Shrewsbury manager Kevin Ratcliffe has a home tie against former club Everton to look forward to.
