United’s FA Cup opponents named

United secured a place in the hat after beating Championship side Watford 1-0 at the weekend and it has now been confirmed that we will face Liverpool at Old Trafford in the fourth round.

It’s a huge game, which is set to take place on the weekend of 23 and 24 January, with an exact date and time yet to be confirmed.

As there are no replays in this season’s cup, the tie will be settled on the day, with 30 minutes of extra time and a penalty shootout called upon if necessary.

Of course, we’re no strangers to the side from down the M62, who we’re set to face in the Premier League this coming Sunday.

United have played Liverpool 17 times in the FA Cup, winning nine of those – including finals in 1977 and 1996, as well as a memorable 2-1 victory in 1999 – drawing four and losing four. Our last meeting in the competition came at this stage in 2012.
