Manchester United haven't played in two weeks, and their last game was in the Premier League against Spurs. The game was a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, and it benefitted no team in the league table. Spurs were unlucky not to win the game after creating many chances, but a late header by McTominay could've been the chance to get United the three points.

Man United are 8th in the league table with 32 points. They are 11 points away from the top 4 spots and would like to get to those positions to qualify for next season's Champions League campaign. Man United only has the FA Cup with a chance to win a trophy this season, and Erik Ten Hag seems desperate to get it after winning the EFL Cup last season. United were in the FA Cup final last season but lost to Man City 2-1.

Newport County will play at home against Manchester United in today's 4th round of the FA Cup. Newport is currently in 16th place out of 24 teams in the League Two standings.
