Manchester United will face Liverpool in the stellar match of the FA Cup round of 32, whose draw was held this Monday, while the reigning champions Arsenal will play against Southampton or Shrewsbury Town (3rd division).

The other tie in which Premier League teams will meet will be the one between Fulham and Burnley.

Manchester City, meanwhile, had more luck as they will have to play the pass to the second round against a team from the fourth category of English football, Cheltenham.

Two other London teams, Tottenham, and Chelsea were paired with Championship (2nd division) teams, Wycombe Wanderers and Luton, respectively.

Third in the Premier League, Leicester, will move to Brentford, fourth in the Championship, while James Rodríguez’s Everton will collide with Sheffield Wednesday (D2).

Crawley Town, the fourth category team that gave the big surprise in the previous instance by eliminating Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds (3-0), will play this time against Bournemouth (2nd division).

Finally, Chorley FC, an amateur team from the 6th division that eliminated a historic player like Derby County (2nd), will seek to continue making history against Wolverhampton.
