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 Boro held United to a 1-1 draw at home before losing 2-1 in the replay at St James' Park.
