Manchester United were drawn at home against Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup, while Chelsea will host Luton Town when matches are played on the weekend of Jan. 23 and 24 (all games streaming live on ESPN+ in the U.S.).

The draw sets up back-to-back weekend matches between the top two teams in the Premier League, as Liverpool host Man United at Anfield on Sunday, Jan. 17. It’s the first time the two teams have met in the FA Cup since Dirk Kuyt scored a late winner as Liverpool beat United 2-1 in January 2012.
