Cambridge United have been handed a dream FA Cup fourth round tie against 11-time winners Manchester United.

The draw means the lowest-ranked side left in the competition will welcome Louis van Gaal's Red Devils to Abbey Stadium on the weekend of January 24-25. A total of 79 league places separate Richard Money's League Two side with the third-placed Premier League outfit, but as has been seen on so many occasions before that does not always matter in the FA Cup.

Another draw that captures the imagination was Chelsea potentially being pitted against London rivals Millwall if the Lions come through their replay with Bradford City.


Southampton/Ipswich v Crystal Palace, Cambridge United v Manchester United, Blackburn v Swansea, Chelsea v Millwall/Bradford, Derby v Scunthorpe/Chesterfield, Preston v Sheffield United, Birmingham v West Brom, Aston Villa v Bournemouth, Cardiff v Reading, AFC Wimbledon/Liverpool v Bolton, Burnley/Tottenham v Leicester, Brighton v Arsenal, Rochdale v Stoke, Sunderland v Fulham/Wolves, Doncaster/Bristol City v Everton/West Ham, Manchester City v Middlesbrough

Ties to be played on weekend beginning January 24.
