Derby County may be flying high in the Championship, however we don't expect them to cause too many problems for a Manchester United side whose chances of grabbing some silverware this season are becoming ever slimmer by the day.

Manchester City have disappeared over the horizon in the race for the Premier League title and Championship side Bristol City dumped the Red Devils out of the Carabao Cup before Christmas. Their chances of winning the Champions League are negligible at best and as such, Jose Mourinho needs to take the FA Cup very seriously indeed.

Following the shock defeat at Ashton Gate last month, the Portuguese boss will know that he shouldn't underestimate any high-flying Championship side, however this time around the Red Devils enjoy home advantage. Indeed this is a similar cup opener to last year with United sweeping Reading aside to the tune of 4-0 at this stage of the competition in 2016/17 before going on to beat Wigan Athletic on their way to an eventual defeat in the quarter-finals at the hands of Chelsea.

United's last meeting with the Rams ended in a 3-1 FA Cup win in the East Midlands with the Red Devils going on to win the competition two years ago and while Derby boss Gary Rowett is going an undeniably fine job at Pride Park this season with his side currently sitting second in the Championship table, we don't believe that the hosts will slip-up on Friday evening as they look to edge themselves into the fourth round of the FA Cup at Derby County's expense.
