Man Utd’s potential FA Cup quarter-final opponents confirmed

Manchester United are set to take on Derby County in the FA Cup fifth round at Pride Park on Thursday evening.

Victory against the mid-table Championship side would book our place in the quarter-finals of this season’s competition.

We are widely expected to progress against Phillip Cocu’s side given the form we are in and that tomorrow’s hosts have one of the weakest defences in their division.

Cameras will be on Wayne Rooney facing his former side but the former United and England captain will be powerless to stop the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Juan Mata and Fred tearing their defence open.

Assuming we safely progress to the final eight, the draw for the next round has already been made. Norwich City are the team waiting for the winner of Derby County and Manchester United following their penalty shootout victory over Norwich City this evening. The fixture will be played at Carrow Road on the weekend of 20-22 March.

The full draw for the 2019-20 FA Cup quarter-finals is as follows:

Sheffield United vs Arsenal
Newcastle United vs Manchester City
Norwich City vs Derby County/Manchester United
Leicester City vs Chelsea
