Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made changes with half an eye on Sunday’s Premier League game at home to Manchester City, but this is still a strong line-up.

Club captain Harry Maguire misses out with a slight injury and is not even on the bench. Juan Mata is tonight’s captain.

A place in the FA Cup quarter-finals is at stake, away at Norwich City, who knocked Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham out last night.

Derby are managed by Dutchman Phillip Cocu, who has faced United as both a player and a manager.

Wayne Rooney is in the starting line up for the Rams, playing in a midfield role which both Sir Alex Ferguson and Louis van Gaal suggested he would be a good fit for.
