Man United and Liverpool to face off in FA Cup

Fierce rivals Manchester United and Liverpool were drawn to face each other Sunday in January's third round of England's FA Cup.

Premier League leader United, which will host the game at Old Trafford, has won the last two meetings against its northwest rival but lost the teams' most recent FA Cup encounter 1-0 in the 2005-06 fifth round.

Arsenal will host second-tier Leeds and Chelsea will host another League Championship side Ipswich.

Non-league side York is at Premier League high-flier Bolton, while FC United of Manchester - the team set up by disaffected fans in the wake of Malcolm Glazer's 2005 takeover of Manchester United - will host last season's runner-up Portsmouth if it wins a replay against Brighton.


FC United and Brighton drew 1-1 Saturday.

The third round is scheduled for Jan. 8-9.
