We've already played them twice this season and yet they are not in the same division as we are! Derby County provide the opposition for Manchester United this weekend in the FA Cup fifth round.
The only worrying thing about this fixture is that we are at Pride Park--a venue where United have struggled to produce goals. Thank God the Carling Cup was a two-legged affair but if we play like we did the last time we went there, then the FA Cup will (God forbid) live up to it's history of producing shocking results. United have, in the past, got Premiership teams more often in the Cup and I'd like to think that it has helped us take the games more seriously. It will be a disaster if our players take Derby for granted as the Rams will play as though their very lives depend on the result. Hopefully we'll use their attacks as a means of building our own.
United welcome Patrice Evra from injury and will have Ferdinand and Jonny Evans available. Wayne is still out so Tevez should start alongside Danny Welbeck.
Victory will win us a place in the last 8 and draw us closer to another final!
