Eagle-eyed fans spotted key error Liverpool made when announcing their FA Cup fourth-round opponents

Eagle-eyed fans spotted key error Liverpool made when announcing their FA Cup fourth-round opponents

They spotted a key error.

Eagle-eyed fans have spotted an error made by Liverpool when announcing their FA Cup fourth-round opponents.

The draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup took place on Monday, ahead of Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic.

Tottenham will face holders Manchester City in a heavyweight fourth-round tie, while Chelsea will take on title contenders Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

United will be away either to League Two's Newport County or National League side Eastleigh. Meanwhile, Maidstone United, the lowest-ranked club left in the competition, visit Championship high-flyers Ipswich.

Elsewhere, either Bristol Rovers, 10th in League One, or Championship outfit Norwich will travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool.

When announcing the draw, however, Liverpool’s media team made a major blunder that was picked up by fans on X, formally Twitter.

The club mistakenly announced that they may be facing Bristol City rather than the Championship side’s City rivals.

The club tweeted: “We’ll face either Norwich City or Bristol City in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup.”

The post was accompanied by a graphic which included the Bristol City crest.

In response to the blunder one fan said: “Hopefully the prospect of both Bristol Rovers AND Bristol City playing replays against higher league opposition at home next week will mean the rest of football will stop mixing them up and will stop calling both just ‘Bristol’ for once.”

Another person said: “Big clubs live in their own world, don’t they…. Although tbf there is only one team in Bristol…”

The full fourth-round draw is as follows:

Watford v Southampton

Blackburn Rovers v Wrexham

Bournemouth v Swansea City

West Brom v Brentford or Wolves

West Ham or Bristol City v Nottingham Forest or Blackpool

Leicester City v Hull City or Birmingham City

Sheffield Wednesday v Coventry City

Chelsea v Aston Villa

Ipswich Town v Maidstone United

Liverpool v Norwich City or Bristol Rovers

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City

Leeds United v Plymouth Argyle

Crystal Palace or Everton v Luton Town or Bolton Wanderers

Newport County or Eastleigh v Manchester United

Sheffield United v Brighton & Hove Albion

Fulham v Newcastle United
