FA Cup 4th Round Draw: United to face Liverpool

Updated: January 8, 2012

Manchester United has been drawn to face Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup at Anfield in the midst of hostilities between the clubs over racism.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was banned for eight matches after being found guilty by the English Football Association of racially abusing United defender Patrice Evra during an October Premier League game.

Liverpool was unhappy with United’s conduct in the case, accusing the English champions of getting a rival’s top player banned “without anything beyond an accusation.”

Liverpool ousted Oldham on Friday in a game that was marred by accusations that an Oldham player was racially abused by fans at Anfield.

United beat holder Man City on Sunday. Chelsea was drawn to face MK Dons or Queens Park Rangers on the weekend of Jan. 28-29 while Arsenal will face Aston Villa if they overcome Leeds tomorrow night.
