FA Cup Third Round Throws Manchester Teams Together

The FA Cup third round-round threw up a match that will have mixed emotions for both sets of Manchester supporters. City and United go head-to-head in a Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium next month.

Neither side will want a struggle to get through to the fourth round, but that's what's in prospect. It is unlikely to be an easy passage for either side.

Manchester United will be looking for revenge after being humiliated 6-1 in the Premiership by City.

The only other all Premiership match is between Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers.

The ties will be played on weekend of January 7/8
