The draw took place at The Deep aquarium in Hull with former Newcastle Utd and England striker Alan Shearer and local coach Paul Adamson on hand to draw the balls.

Liverpool, ball number 23, were drawn out early in the proceedings and will visit AFC Wimbledon at their ground, Kingsmeadow.

The two sides have never met before, however Liverpool met Wimbledon in the 1988 FA Cup Final, when they were beaten by Lawrie Sanchez’s side.

The Reds will be hoping to go further than last season when they were eliminated in the fifth round at Arsenal after beating Oldham and Bournemouth.

The last time Liverpool won the FA Cup was 2006 when they beat West Ham on penalties. A run to the final in 2012 ended in defeat to Chelsea for Kenny Dalglish‘s men.

Ties will be played on the weekend of the 3-6 January 2015. This season’s FA Cup final takes place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, 30 May 2015.
