FA Cup: Semi-final draw made

Manchester United will not have their FA Cup third-round tie with Derby televised live in January.

The decision not to choose the Old Trafford tie as one of the six live ties between January 5-8 – will end a 12-year run of 58 televised FA Cup matches.

Broadcasters have been unable to ignore United in recent years, but this time around United v Derby has not made the cut.

The live ties are as follows:

Liverpool v Everton (Fri, BBC)

Fleetwood Town or Hereford v Leicester City (Sat, BBC)

Norwich City v Chelsea (Sat, BT Sport)

Shrewsbury v West Ham United (Sun, BBC)

Nottingham Forest v holders Arsenal (Sun, BT Sport)

Brighton v C Palace (Mon, BT Sport)

Telegraph Sport also claim that Brighton & Hove Albion v Crystal Palace will play the first competitive match in England in which video replays will be used to overturn refereeing decisions.
