Match Preview:

Manchester United and Derby County have clashed for a total of 95 times since 1892.

The Red Devils have got 45 wins in their pocket while Derby County has 31 wins and have divided points on 29 occasions.

The last fixture between the two teams ended in favour of Manchester United with a 3-1 win in the FA Cup.

Manchester United ride on the back of one win, three draws and one loss in the last five matches with the match against Everton on New Year’s day, the only win.

Meanwhile, Derby County are in good run of form with three wins and two draws going into this tie.

Key Match Stats:

This will be the 10th time these two sides have been drawn together in the FA Cup, meeting as recently as January 2016 – with Manchester United winning 3-1 at the iPro Stadium in the fourth round.

The Red Devils have won each of the last seven FA Cup games against Derby County, including two semi-final wins in 1948 and 1976.

Manchester United haven’t lost to two different sides from outside the top-flight in a single season since 1983-84, when they lost to Oxford United and Bournemouth; the Red Devils lost 2-1 to Bristol City in the League Cup quarter-final this season.

Man Utd have lost just one of their last 35 FA Cup games against lower league opponents at Old Trafford (W:28 D:6) – losing 0-1 to Leeds United back in January 2010.

The Rams have only progressed past an opponent from a higher division in one of their last 15 FA Cup ties – beating West Brom at the Hawthorns at this stage last season.

As Manchester United fan, I can only hope for the best.
