Manchester United are away to Championship side Derby County in the FA Cup fifth round this evening.
Wayne Rooney will be in action against us in a game that we are widely expected to book a match against Norwich City in the quarter-finals.
Despite the derby at Old Trafford on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named a strong starting lineup this evening.
The two teams are confirmed as:
Sergio Romero; Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Fred, Juan Mata; Bruno Fernandes, Jesse Lingard; Odion Ighalo
Substitutes: David de Gea, Axel Tuanzebe, Brandon Williams, Andreas Pereira, Nemanja Matic, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial
Odion Ighalo leads the line again this evening as Anthony Martial is being rested for the derby on Sunday. Harry Maguire has also been given a rest as Eric Bailly partners Victor Lindelof in the middle of our back four.
Digo Dalot comes in for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back but Luke Shaw continues to start on the other flank. No surprise to see Nemanja Matic rested as Fred retains his place. Juan Mata will be the creative midfield in the central midfield trio, with Bruno Fernandes looking to run the show from the number 10 role.
Kelle Roos; Jayden Bogle, George Evans, Craig Forsyth, Max Lowe; Louie Sibley, Max Bird, Wayne Rooney; Jason Knight, Martyn Waghorn, Tom Lawrence
Substitutes: Ben Hamer, Curtis Davies, Matt Clarke, Graeme Shinnie, Morgan Whittaker, Jack Marriott, Chris Martin
Phillip Cocu’s side currently sit mid-table in the second tier but would likely drop into the relegation zone should they receive a points deduction from the EFL following the unlawful breach of spending rules claim.
The Dutch manager clearly has survival on his mind by naming a weak side this evening. Backup goalkeeper Kelle Roos starts but Cocu has not named a single centre-back in the starting lineup. We’re guessing Craig Forysth and George Evans will play there.
There are three teenagers starting in midfield alongside Wayne Rooney – Jason Knight, Max Bird and Jason Knight. Rooney is joined by another former United player – Tom Lawrence.
