FA Cup Draw, Manchester United have been drawn away to Liverpool in a mouthwatering FA Cup showdown.

Luis Suarez, who has been at the centre of a racism row in recent months, will not be available to play against United as he is still serving an eight match ban.

Black Cats manager Martin O’Neill, reacting to the draw, said: ‘It’s a tough one but we’re at home anyway. I wonder what (former Middlesbrough midfielder) Lee Cattermole thinks of it.
