It’s FA CUP time! Tonight Derby County hosts Manchester United in a thrilling match from English FA Cup 1/8 finals. The game is set to take place at Pride Park in Derby. The official kick-off of the match is 19:45 GMT 0.
Derby County with Rooney
So far, Derby County managed to eliminate Crystal Palace (0-1) and Northampton in two matches (0-0, 4-2). The hosts currently lie on 13th position in Championship with 48 points but they will need to compensate a difference of 8 points in order to compete for a place in the top 6. Anyway, the team shows some nice displays but the overall performance is too inconsistent. We will see tonight whether the manager of the team Philip Cocu and Wayne Rooney are capable of making a miracle.
The impressive Manchester United last month
Manchester United reached the 1/8 finals of the tournament after eliminating Wolves in two matches (0-0, 1-0) and smashing 6-0 win against Tranmere. It seems that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stabilized the team’s performance in the last matches and now the atmosphere within the squad is more than positive. We think that United will start with their best possible squad for the upcoming match against Derby.
