Manchester United head to Ewood Park this afternoon looking to ensure that they remain the only Premier League side still going on all four fronts this season.
With Jose Mourinho’s side still going in both the Europa League and EFL Cup, as well as they FA Cup, they will be desperate to get past Owen Coyle’s side, who beat Blackpool 2-0 in the fourth round, and keep that run going.
Rovers come into the game with just one win in four since that fourth round victory, and will be looking to bounce back from defeat to Sheffield Wednesday last time out.
Their visitors meanwhile, have only tasted defeat once since October, a League Cup second leg loss to Hull City which still wasn’t enough to knock them out, and come into the clash having comfortable beaten St. Etienne 3-0 at Old Trafford on Thursday.
With a packed schedule Mourinho may look to shake things up, giving Marcus Rashford a shot at earning a first team spot, whilst Coyle will be looking to his joint top goalscorer, Sam Gallagher, on loan from Southampton, to deliver a shock, but how do the pair stack up? Have a look…
