United last lifted the trophy in 2016, when beating Crystal Palace in the final during Louis van Gaal’s reign. However, the club’s 12 triumphs in the tournament is a record only bettered by Arsenal, who won it for the 14th time last term, when overcoming London rivals Chelsea.
Ole tasted success twice as a player – in 1999 against Newcastle United and, five years later, in the victory over Millwall at the Millennium Stadium. The boss will be hoping for a home draw after an incredible run in the domestic competitions. We have had three successive away pairings in the 2020/21 Carabao Cup (next up is a trip to Everton just before Christmas) to go with seven straight draws on the road in the FA Cup since Ole took charge.
