A lengthy Manchester United streak will finally come to an end in January - for the first time in 12 years they'll play in an FA Cup game that will not be televised.

"The trialling of the VAR system in this season's Emirates FA Cup from the third round is a continuation of that and further demonstrates that whilst being the most famous and historic domestic cup competition in the world it is also modern, progressive and innovative".

Incredibly, the last time a Man United game was not broadcast on television was in 2005, when Alex Ferguson's team were froze with the spotlight off and were somehow held to a goalless draw with Conference side Exeter City at Old Trafford.

Tim Howard, Phil Neville, Wes Brown, Gerard Pique, Jonathan Spector, Chris Eagles, Eric Djemba-Djemba, David Jones, Liam Miller, David Bellion, Kieran Richardson.

Also progressing will be the match featuring Gary McAllister's injury-time victor in 2001, which pipped Daniel Sturridge's late equaliser in the 2013 3-3, and Phil Neville and Tony Hibbert's sending off in a 2007 Liverpool win at Everton, which beat Everton's 2006 3-0 win at Goodison, when Andy Johnson scored twice.

There was a major backlash last season when United's third-round tie with Reading was televised, so the rights-holders have sensibly decided not to broadcast a similar unexciting fixture.

Derby Day is coming on Sky Sports, with Manchester United taking on Manchester City and Liverpool playing hosts to Everton.

Friday, January 5: Liverpool versus Everton (BBC). The following day they will air the clash of Fleetwood Town or non-league Hereford and Leicester City.

The rest of the weekend's FA Cup action that will be broadcast is as follows, Norwich City vs. Chelsea (BT) at tea-time on Saturday, while the Sunday will see Shrewsbury vs. Nottingham Forest versus Arsenal (BT Sport).
