FA Cup Round 4 rages on this weekend. There’s plenty of English football to be enjoyed, but the biggest game of Round 4 is easily Manchester United vs. Liverpool.

The two Premier League teams come together having just played a match in the Premier League last week on January 17. Liverpool’s keeper Alisson Becker ensured that Manchester United couldn’t score a single goal, but Liverpool's attack was a bit lacking too. This saw the game finishing on a disappointing 0-0 stalemate.

In Round 3 of the FA Cup, Liverpool dominated Aston Villa 4-1 in the first game of the round. Manchester United, meanwhile, secured a much less impressive 1-0 victory over EFL Championship league team Watford. With so much to prove following their stalemate, we’re all hoping this will be an action-packed game.
