The draw for the FA Cup fourth and fifth rounds have taken place as Liverpool have been drawn to face Manchester United at Old Trafford in what is the standout tie of the round.

First up was the fourth round. After Premier League leaders Liverpool edged past a COVID-stricken Aston Villa side in the last round, they will look to qualify for the fifth round against their title rivals United. The match takes on added importance as it is set to take place a week after they face off in the Premier League.

Non-league side Chorley are the lowest ranked team left in the competition after edging past Derby County in the third round. Their story has been an old-fashioned FA Cup fairytale so far and they will look to continue their dream at home to Wolves.

Elsewhere, defending champions Arsenal face Southampton or Shrewsbury, while Chelsea take on Luton Town, and London rivals Spurs will clash with Wycombe Wanderers
