United host Liverpool in Cup cracker

United host Liverpool in Cup cracker

The two giants are now locked at the top of the league.

Liverpool last won the FA Cup over 14 years ago, having been beaten in the semi-finals and finals twice in the previous decade.

Southampton are in the position where they could potentially target a run in the FA Cup this season, as they a very strong position in the Premier League table.

Tottenham, 5-0 third-round winners at Marine of the Northern Premier League North West Division, are on the road again, with Championship strugglers Wycombe this time providing the opposition.

Crawley Town's reward for their giant-killing of Leeds United is a trip to Bournemouth.


Manchester United have been pulled out alongside Liverpool in the undoubted glamour tie of the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Defending champion Arsenal must travel to the victor of the third-round match between Southampton and Shrewsbury, a date for which has yet to be decided. Should they navigate that, they'll be away to Wolves or Chorley. That revealed that the Saints will face potential ties against Arsenal and, if they can dethrone the holders, they would then the victor of non-league Chroley's tie against Premier League Wolves.

There was little time for Vermiglio and his players to dream about what might lie ahead, with this evening's league clash with Leamington the immediate priority.

"It's just tough, though, to keep them focused on the league, which is our priority". The fourth-round ties will be played the weekend of January 23-24 and the fifth-round ties February 9-11.
