Liverpool, United and City are aiming to win the Premier League title this season, but one suspects that they all would still want to win the FA Cup, or at least go far in the competition.

The greatest rivalry in English football will take centre stage in the fourth round of the FA Cup later this month.

Trevor Sinclair has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the FA Cup draw, which will see Liverpool face Manchester United at Old Trafford and Manchester City lock horns with Cheltenham Town.

The winners of the meeting of the Premier League's top two will be at home to either Stockport, West Ham or Doncaster in round 5.

The most romantic fourth-round tie is undoubtedly non-league Chorley's home game with Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers.

League Two Crawley, who dumped Leeds out on Sunday, face a trip to Championship promotion hopefuls Bournemouth.

Manchester City and Tottenham were also given away matches against lower-division sides.

Holders Arsenal will visit either Southampton or Shrewsbury Town in round four, with that third-round tie yet to be decided after being called off when Shrewsbury reported Covid-19 cases in their squad.

Everton or Sheffield Wednesday v Wycombe or Tottenham, Swansea or Nottingham Forest v Cheltenham or Manchester City, Brentford or Leicester v Brighton or Blackpool. The fourth-round ties will be played the weekend of January 23-24 and the fifth-round ties February 9-11.
