After beating Reading 2-0 at home, Manchester United earned their place in the FA Cup fourth round.
This evening, after Liverpool’s 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers (haha!), the draw was made and the Red Devils will be heading to London to take on Arsenal.
Going away in cup competition always makes things tougher, but when you’re playing against one of the best teams in the country, well, it just doesn’t get any tougher.
For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, this tournament represents his best chance at scooping a trophy, but it’s fair to say the footballing gods have been less than kind to the Baby Faced Assassin.
While it will be a tricky game, it’s always great to test yourself against the very best. This game pits Solskjaer against Unai Emery and it really will give us an insight into how our Norwegian legend can adjust and adapt his tactics when taking on a fellow Premier League big-boy.
It just gives the board a bigger sample size in those huge showdowns, which could well become make or break when Edward Woodward and company are looking at potentially hiring Solskjaer on a permanent basis.
