Liverpool to face non-league opponents in FA Cup

Liverpool have been drawn out of the hat to play away in the FA Cup 3rd Round.

The reds will face either Lincoln City or Mansfield Town in the draw on the weekend of the 5th/6th of January.

Mansfield and Lincoln, who ply their trade in the Conference, will both have huge incentive to win their FA Cup 2nd Round replay to face the reds - which is almost certain to be televised and could hand a big boost to their coffers.  Mansfield have got a winding-up order issues against them.

The two sides played out a 3-3 draw yesterday at Lincoln to force the replay.

The reds enjoyed two Wembley trips with the FA Cup last season - narrowly losing out on in the cup final 2-1 to Chelsea.

The full draw is as follows:

Crystal Palace v Stoke
