Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to progress into the next round of the FA Cup today against fellow Premier League side, Huddersfield Town.
The Red Devils will be hoping to mount an FA Cup charge in a bid to bring some silverware to Old Trafford again this season, as it looks as if the Premier League is out of reach and realistically, not many are giving them a chance of winning the Champions League just yet.
United last won the cup under former boss Louis van Gaal, in his last match at the club and stopping Man City winning all three domestic trophies must be an appealing notion at the Theatre of Dreams. With Jose Mourinho needed to get back to winning ways, he’ll be hoping for a similar result and performance that saw his Red Devils pick up the three points a couple of weeks back against the Terriers.
With important matches ahead, especially in Europe, Mourinho could use this opportunity to rotate the squad and bring in some fringe or out of form players to impress the boss. Our landlord takes a look at two players that need to level up against Huddersfield today…
