Manchester United get their FA Cup campaign under way with a Third Round tie against Championship side Watford at Old Trafford. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men reached the semi-finals last season and have been in fine form in the Premier League, but missed their first chance to win silverware this campaign after crashing out of the Carabao Cup with a 2-0 semi-final defeat by rivals Manchester City in midweek.

They face a tough task to start their FA Cup charge against Championship side Watford though, who reached the final themselves in 2019 and play their third game under new manager Xisco Munoz.
