Fans were left ecstatic after Man United were drawn up against Liverpool. The two sides are currently vying for the top spot in the Premier League, after having bagged an equal number of points. But Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's men could throttle Liverpool for the top spot if they manage to make the most of their clash against Burnley on Wednesday. 

Following the Burnley clash, Liverpool will have the opportunity to regain the top spot when they host the Red Devils at Anfield. In a startling show, the two sides will play for the second time within a week of their Premier League clash, this time in the FA Cup. Liverpool will travel to Old Trafford for the FA Cup fixture.

Despite the rivalry between the two English heavyweights, fans of the two clubs have come together on social media against Man City's fixture. Pep Guardiola's men have been paired up against Cheltenham Town FC for the fourth round of the FA Cup. Fans were quick to question the relatively easier draw for the Etihad-based outfit. 

Some fans went to the extent of blaming the FA for awarding an easy tie to Man City. Interestingly, the Cityzens had defeated Birmingham on their way to the fourth round, while Cheltenham Town FC managed a close-edged 2-1 victory against Mansfield Town last weekend.
