Liverpool to play Man United as FA Cup quarter-final opponent confirmed

Liverpool progressed beyond Southampton in the FA Cup, meaning they will face Man United in the quarter-final after the draw was made on Wednesday evening.

The Reds faced Championship opposition in the fifth round just three days after lifting the first domestic trophy on offer this season, winning 3-0 to keep their quadruple hopes alive.

Anfield was the backdrop as Jurgen Klopp led his injury-ravaged side through another fixture, with youth again taking centre-stage after their heroics on Sunday.

After goals from Lewis Koumas and Jayden Danns against the Championship side, Liverpool will now meet Man United in the final eight of the FA Cup.

 

When is the quarter-final?

Liverpool will play away at Old Trafford, with the tie scheduled to take place over the weekend of March 16/17.

The quarter-final clash means the Premier League meeting with Everton has been postponed to a later date, which is not be a bad thing for Klopp and Co. considering the injury list.

The cup tie is be the final game before the March international break and follows the second leg of the Europa League last 16 tie against Sparta Prague.
