Manchester United Football Club have a genuine chance at progressing deep into the FA Cup this year, with the Reds’ path to Wembley now set.
Win against Derby County and a visit to Carrow Road and Norwich City is the prize. That’s an opportunity Ole Gunnar Solskaer would’ve bit your hand off for at the season’s start.
First up, we have to complete the job at hand. Derby are an excellent side, made stronger by Wayne Rooney’s recent arrival to Pride Park. Make no mistake about it, United will have to be at their best this evening.
As expected, changes have been made by the Baby Faced Assasin, though thankfully, this team confirmed by the official United Twitter account looks like it should have more than enough firepower…
Sergio Romero does come back into the team as the goalkeeper, meaning David de Gea drops to the bench with the Machester derby just on the horizon.
Diogo Dalot gets a rare start in the right-back slot, with Luke Shaw keeping his place over on the left. Victor Lindelof plays alongside Eric Bailly. Harry Maguire has seemingly been left in Manchester to prepare for a huge game against our noisy neighbours.
Scott McTominay continues his road to recovery with an appearance against Derby this evening. Fred and Bruno Fernandes complete an extremely strong midfield trio.
Odion Ighalo leads the line here, with Jesse Lingard on one side and Juan Mata on the other.
