Manchester United will return to action on Saturday night when they host Championship side Watford at Old Trafford to secure a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The Manchester side have won this prestigious competition on 12 occasions, with their most recent victory coming in 2016 when they defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 in the final.
They also made it to the semi-finals of the FA Cup last season, but gave a meek display against Chelsea to ultimately lose the game 3-1.
The Red Devils have been in an excellent form recently, winning eight of their previous 10 Premier League matches to secure second position in the table.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could leapfrog Liverpool to the summit on Tuesday, ahead of their Anfield visit, if they manage to defeat Burnley at Turf Moor.
United were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, with arch-rivals Manchester City winning 2-0 to book a place in the final with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley in April.
Although Solskjaer’s first priority will be the Premier League now, he will certainly not want to miss out on the chance of silverware by winning the FA Cup.
Watford, who have now appointed Xisco as their new manager, slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Swansea City last week, leaving them sixth in the Championship table and 10 points behind league leaders Norwich City.
For United, Phil Jones will be sidelined due to injury while Edinson Cavani will also not be available through suspension. Donny van de Beek, Juan Mata, Axel Tuanzebe and Eric Bailly are expected to return to the starting XI in the Old Trafford game.
As for Watford, they will be without Domingos Quina, Issac Success, Stipe Perica, and Christian Kabasele due to injury problems. However, the Hornets have been given a boost regarding Craig Cathcart and Joao Pedro as the duo have returned to training.
