Manchester United vs Derby LIVE
Manchester United begin their FA Cup campaign with a home tie against Derby County and Jose Mourinho will hope it is the first step on a journey that ends at Wembley in May.
The United manager suggested he would play a 'Premier League team' against the Championship club, and a strong squad checked into the Lowry Hotel on Friday afternoon.
Phil Jones and Nemanja Matic were not spotted at the hotel by M.E.N. photographers and the duo could also be in line for a rest.
Matic has played 32 games this season for club and country since signing from Chelsea in August.
Axel Tuanzebe could also make his fourth senior appearance of the season.
