Manchester United and City drawn together in FA Cup third round

Manchester United have been drawn against Manchester City in the third round of this season's FA Cup.

The tie will be played on either Saturday 7th or Sunday 8th of January, in what is one of the stand-out weekends in the English football calendar.

Fans booking Manchester hotels will be able to see the top two sides in the Premier League face off, with City already having the bragging rights after thrashing their neighbours 6-1 back in October.

Writing on his Twitter page, United centre-back Rio Ferdinand said: "3rd round FA cup game vs mancity..great game to kick off this yrs FA cup, can't wait."

Other ties of note see Championship side Leeds United travel to Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur host Cheltenham Town and Everton welcome Tamworth.
