Liverpool-born Abbey Clancy joked her father will ‘kill’ Peter Crouch after the former England striker drew the Reds against Manchester United in the FA Cup on Monday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will take on Jurgen Klopp’s champions in a mouth-watering fourth round derby clash Old Trafford between January 22-25.
The two teams do not just divide the north west of England but are also the top two sides in the Premier League at the moment, with Clancy’s tweet to her husband epitomising the rivalry between the two sides.

Clancy tweeted on Monday night: ‘My dad is gonna kill you Man U v Liverpool #facupdraw’, with Crouch responding that he will ‘head straight to the spare room’.
Crouch began the drew by impersonating music legend Rod Stewart who exaggerated his pulling the balls out of the hat when doing the Scottish Cup draw back in 2017.
The former England striker even added his own ‘robot’ version to the stunt to coincide with his iconic celebration during his playing days.

One confident United fan said: ‘ Manchester United Vs Liverpool. Looks like we are going to have to ruin their trophy hopes in 2 competitions.’

The Red Devils could move top of the table with victory over Burnley on Tuesday night and could extend their lead over the Reds with victory at Anfield.
Meanwhile, United have won three out of their last four FA Cup matches against Liverpool, with current Red Devils boss Solskjaer scoring the winner the last time the sides met in 1999.
The Norwegian scored shortly after Dwight Yorke levelled in the 2-1 fourth round victory at Old Trafford that year, with United going on to win the treble that season.

Liverpool’s last FA Cup win at Old Trafford came in 1921 with a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Bill Lacey and Harry Chambers.
The draw also sees Liverpool face another Premier League side in the FA Cup under manager Klopp. The Reds have been picked to play a top-flight side in 17 out of their 26 games under the German manager.
Klopp has also never won at Old Trafford during his Liverpool career
Liverpool have not won the oldest competition in English football in 15 years, when they beat West Ham in the 2006 final on penalties in Cardiff.
The other standout draws from this year’s fourth round sees Cheltenham Town host Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City while non-league Chorley will host Premier League Wolves.
