Akinfenwa reacts on Twitter to Liverpool FA Cup tie, Reds fans fearful!

Liverpool face AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup third round.

Liverpool have been drawn against AFC Wimbledon in the third round of the FA Cup.

While the Reds are competing in the Champions League this season, AFC Wimbledon sit down in 16th place in League Two, but will be relishing the chance to pull off a major upset.

The Dons are the fan created side which formed back in 2002 after the previous Wimbledon side was relocated by it's then owners to Milton Keynes to become MK Dons.

They have since risen through the non-league divisions to reach League Two, and hope to emulate the previous Wimbledon side by knocking Liverpool out of England's most prestigious cup competition.

Fan will have fond memories of the 1988 FA Cup Final at Wembley, when Wimbledon's 'Crazy Gang' beat heavy favourites Liverpool to win the competition.

Wimbledon's most notorious player currently is striker Adebayo Akinfenwa, the 32-year-old who is affectionately known as Britain's largest professional footballer.

Whatever the result for the Reds, Liverpool's defence will not be in for an easy ride, and Akinfenwa took to Twitter to express his delight at being drawn against the Premier League giants.

Below we have also collated a selection of fan reaction to the tie from both teams:
