Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is excited by the FA Cup draw which has paired the Barclays Premier League champions with neighbours Manchester City.

The teams will meet in the third round on the weekend of January 7-8 in what was the highlight of the draw, with other eye-catching ties including Birmingham versus Wolves and Arsenal against Leeds, reuniting the teams that met in last year's third round which saw the north London side progress after a replay.

Ferdinand wrote on Twitter: "3rd round FA cup game vs mancity..great game to kick off this yrs FA cup, can't wait."
