Manchester United will be wanting to put Wednesday’s EFL Cup semi-final frustration behind them when they handle Watford in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday night.

The Red Devils were avoided from reaching their very first last under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they suffered a 2-0 loss to Manchester City at Old Trafford.

The 20-time English champions have actually been on an outstanding run in the Premier League and will have the opportunity to go to the top of the table when they take a trip to Burnley on January 12.

United’s attention will now be on the FA Cup, though, as Solskjaer wants to lead his side past Champion opposition.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of United’s most current injury and suspension news ahead of this weekend’s clash with the Hornets.
