Date confirmed for Liverpool FA Cup tie

Manchester United will play Liverpool at Old Trafford in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup on Sunday 24 January.

The game is sure to attract a massive television audience as it is being screened live in the UK on BBC One, with kick-off at 17:00 GMT.

It represents a second meeting between the two giant clubs in consecutive weekends, with the Premier League clash at Anfield taking place this Sunday.

The match is a reward for the Reds' 1-0 victory over Championship club Watford in the previous round, while Liverpool overcame a much-changed Aston Villa side.

Clearly the tie of the round, it should be another titanic tussle between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men and Jurgen Klopp's team.

Both sides already know they will be at home in the next round, should they get through, with West Ham United or Doncaster Rovers lying in wait next month.

That game will be staged at Old Trafford or Anfield, depending which side is victorious at the Theatre of Dreams a week on Sunday.
