Odds: Man Utd 1/4, Draw 9/2, Derby 10/1
Kick Off: 2000, 05/01/2018
Stadium: Old Trafford
Manchester United begin their quest for a record-equalling 13th FA Cup triumph by hosting Derby on Friday night and are fancied to overcome this tricky obstacle.
The Red Devils lifted this trophy in 2016, but three wins in four years for Arsenal has pushed the Gunners one ahead in the outright triumphs chart.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United suffered a frustrating festive period, crashing out of the EFL Cup at Bristol City and then drawing three straight Premier League fixtures.
However, New Year’s Day brought a fresh start for the Red Devils via a convincing 2-0 victory at Everton, with Anthony Martial on target when filling in for Romelu Lukaku up front and Jesse Lingard continuing his good form.
With Paul Pogba silencing his critics through an impressive display at Goodison Park, United look back on track, despite still being hampered by injury and suspension issues.
Mourinho is aware of calls for more up-tempo tactics on home turf and that should lead to an entertaining encounter with the Rams.
A Look At Derby County’s Betting Odds
Derby will have been slightly disappointed with a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United at Pride Park on Monday but they are still second in the Championship after a seven-match unbeaten run.
The Rams have picked up five victories during that period and only runaway leaders Wolves have scored more goals in their division this season.
Reflecting on the last outing, manager Gary Rowett felt that “was probably a game too far” after a busy run of games, but his players should be able to lift themselves again for the trip to Old Trafford.
County were competitive when beaten 3-1 by the Red Devils in the fourth round a couple of years ago and we’re expecting another decent contest.
