Date Posted: 09/01/12
Manchester United's reward for defeating their close rivals Manchester City in the FA Cup third round is a trip to Liverpool.
Sir Alex Ferguson's side ran out 3-2 winners and will now battle for a place in the fifth round against Kenny Dalglish's men.
Fans will need to book Liverpool hotels for the weekend of January 28th and 29th in order to see the bitter foes face off.
Yesterday (Sunday January 8th), United went 3-0 up at the Etihad Stadium thanks to two goals from Wayne Rooney and one from Danny Welbeck.
Manchester City's Vincent Kompany was also controversially sent off before his side launched an inspired comeback.
Liverpool guaranteed their place in the fourth round after thrashing Oldham 5-1 at Anfield, with Steven Gerrard continuing his return from injury with a goal.
Elsewhere, other stand-out fourth round FA Cup ties include Sunderland hosting Middlesbrough, Blackpool welcoming Sheffield Wednesday and the winner of tonight's Arsenal versus Leeds game playing Aston Villa.
