The FA Cup third round kicks off with two intriguing games on Friday.

[ LIVE: Follow the FA Cup scores ]

There is the small matter of a Merseyside derby at Anfield as Liverpool host Everton with both Jurgen Klopp and Sam Allardyce eager for a cup run but also wary of mounting injuries after a hectic festive period in the Premier League.

Virgil van Dijk makes his Liverpool debut, while Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana all start. Wayne Rooney and Gylfi Sigurdsson both start in a strong Everton lineup.

At Old Trafford, Manchester United welcome second-tier Derby County who are flying high in the Championship as they aim to return to the PL for the first time since they were relegated in 2008. Jose Mourinho will be keen to rest players but knows that Derby are more than capable of causing an upset to reach the last 32.
