Marine were already ecstatic at by far the biggest game in their history – even before their TV pay-day.
Neil Young, manager of the Northern Premier League Division One North West club, said: "It's an unbelievable draw. We will plan as best we can.
"Usually with Jose's teams, he puts pretty strong sides out.
"We have won seven games to get here and this is a great reward."
Manchester City, who were drawn at home to Birmingham, are the bookies' favourites at around 7/2.
Next come Chelsea and Liverpool on about 8/1, with United on 9/1.
Spurs actually might be flattered to not be amongst that group – as perhaps it suggests bookies reckon Mourinho's men will remain busy in the Prem title race.
