Aston Villa shared details on Thursday regarding the club’s trip to take on Manchester United in the FA Cup third round in January.
However, the confirmed news has left a number of Villa fans unhappy on social media.
Steven Gerrard will get his first taste of management at Old Trafford in the New Year after Villa were paired with United in the third round for the fifth time in the 21st century.
Happy with the draw?
Yes, bring them on!
No, getting boring now!
The FA Cup tie will take place on Monday, January 10, with a 7:55pm kick-off broadcast live on BBC 1. The two will then face off in the Premier League at Villa Park just five days later, with some supporters not exactly thrilled at the Monday night fixture.
Villa fans react
Villa shared the details on their official Twitter page. This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply to the club post, with one labelling it as ‘dreadful’.
“Ruin my life why don’t you”
“Dreadful tie at a dreadful time”
“bit of a joke that”
“What a joke why didn’t they put the all London game on the Monday night. Dont worry about the Villa fans who have already had 5 out of 7 moved in December and January .”
