Reds draw Liverpool in cup

United and Liverpool will meet at Old Trafford in the FA Cup third round.

Sunday afternoon's draw, conducted by rock stars Noel Gallagher (Oasis) and Serge Pizzorno (Kasabian), pits the Reds against Liverpool for the 16th time in the competition. The clash, the only all-Premier League tie in the third round, will take place on Saturday 8 or Sunday 9 January 2011.

The last time the two sides met in the FA Cup at Old Trafford, back in January 1999, late goals from Dwight Yorke and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed the Reds a 2-1 win. United went on to win the Treble.
