Manchester United will play tomorrow, Friday, in the first matches of the FA Cup where the Red Devils will look to continue their winning run after beating Everton FC away from home after their disappointing results recently.
When and where is the match?:
When: The match will be on Friday, January 5 at 9:00 PM BST.
Where: Old Trafford (home)
Who will play?
Jose Mourinho doesn’t have a lot of options to choose from, but he won’t play with an average squad because this type of matches can’t be lost at all. However, one boost is that Romelu Lukaku will be fit for tomorrow.
We expect the following starting 11:
Goalkeeper: Sergio Romero
Defenders: Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Matteo Darmian, and Daley Blind.
Midfielders: Ander Herrera, McTominay, and Axel Tuanzebe
Forward: Marocs Rashford, Romelu Lukaku, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Romelu Lukaku has been officially declared fit for tomorrow’s match. However, Jose Mourinho may not risk him and may give him more rest to avoid any further injuries, and start Anthony Martial as a striker.
It won’t be ane easy team for Manchester United, especially with the number of new players in this squad in order to rest the key players such as Pogba and Matic. However, we expect a 2-1 win to Manchester United.
Manchester United has never lost against Derby County in the FA Cup in all the seven matches both teams have met in.
