Manchester United vs Derby Country: FA Cup TV, live streaming


Jose Mourinho's men returned to winning ways at the beginning of the year and they will be desperate to string a series of positive results together

Manchester United welcome Championship side Derby County to Old Trafford on Friday as they get their FA Cup campaign under way.





The Red Devils ended a four-game winless run when they defeated Everton 1-0 on New Year's Day and Jose Mourinho will be keen for his players to build on that as they come out the other side of a hectic festive schedule.


Derby, meanwhile, are enjoying a seven-game unbeaten streak in all competitions so they will fancy their chances of staging an upset against the Premier League giants.

Manchester United host Derby County in a Friday night clash at Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho seeks to a avoid an FA Cup third-round giant-killing.

Mourinho has won the competition just once - with Chelsea back in 2007 - and will be looking to win it again given United are out of the EFL Cup and off the pace in the Premier League title race.





While the third-round draw has been relatively kind to United in handing out lower-league opposition, Derby are second in the Championship, unbeaten in seven, and will likely offer the sort of resistance a top-flight team would do at Old Trafford.
