FA Cup Highlights

About this programme

Matt Smith is joined by Andy Townsend to present action from today's third-round ties, featuring Manchester United v Liverpool at Old Trafford, Tottenham Hotspur v Charlton Athletic at White Hart Lane, Chelsea v Ipswich Town at Stamford Bridge and Leicester City v Manchester City at the Walkers Stadium. United and Liverpool were looking to avoid a repeat of this stage last term, when they were eliminated by Leeds United and Reading respectively. Elsewhere, Spurs, Manchester City and holders Chelsea will all have been expecting to defeat lower-league opposition, but the nature of this competition meant nothing could be taken for granted.
