Well, Manchester United earned their place in the FA Cup draw, thanks to an impressive victory at home to Wigan Athletic. Jose Mourinho’s men won the match 4-0, with Bastian Schweinsteiger getting himself on the scoresheet.
Now, the draw for the next round has been made, and it has been rather favourable for the Red Devils. Jose will take his side to Blackburn Rovers, a Championship side who are really struggling in the league at the moment – sitting in 23rd place.
Owen Coyle is the boss, and they even have an absolute hero for Manchester United fans on their books in the form of Wes Brown – a man who won absolutely everything whilst at Old Trafford.
This is a fixture you’d firmly expect Manchester United to come through relatively unscathed, and it could certainly present the squad players with an opportunity to prove their worth to the mananger.
