Strongest available team - only remaining chance of salvaging the season really!

well obviously not risking anyone not fit, but I don't want to see us resting first-choice players because "it's just the FA cup" (I love that trophy)

The fact ( if it is one) that you love the trophy is of no concern to Jose, he has to look to more important games and the fitness of the players available.
A slip up against Derby would not be considered the same disaster as a slip up against the likes of say Yeovil or Exeter.
In theory we should win this with a bunch of youngsters and a few veteran heads thrown in, but those halcyon days are in the past, to win this we will need to field the best team available, if Jose wants to win it.

Derby are a decent team, but we should beat them @ home.

I get the impression that Mourinho does not give up on games lightly. He is a total pragmatist who looks at the entire season, take the end of last season as the most cold blooded way of looking at getting into the Champions League. He made the assesment that the Europa Cup was his best route to getting there and after that League game defiantly took second priority.

Back to norm. Make it hard for ourselves and score late goals. Just more consistency from the players especially - Martial, Lingard, Pogba and Rashford. Rashford is somewhat poor as our starting striker on this match. Feel sorry for Mikhi as well. Seems not part of the core group that Mourinho would pick on upcoming CL and EPL matches.

Rashford has hit the post more times than he scored this season. That's equally encouraging as it is disappointing.. He'll come good. With a bit of luck yesterday he could've scored two and be a "hero". The goals will come.

I was saying the same about Lingard a year or so ago (when some people thought he wasn't a man utd material) that he's one of my favourite players in the team and that he'll eventually produce, and as we can see, now he's doing it.

Rashford and Lingard will be very important leaders in this team for years to come. They'll have their ups and downs but if they stay healthy they'll continue to improve. Those two have top attitude and work ethic, and those two attributes almost never fail in the long run.

Yeah, I've got a post saved about Lingard that I need to finish off. Cliff notes is that he's become a very important player for Jose, and I think he's going to become even more crucial.
