OLD TRAFFORD, MANCHESTER — Erik ten Hag gets his first taste of the FA Cup tonight as Manchester United host Everton in the third round.
The Red Devils have won all four of their matches since the World Cup without conceding a goal and will look to progress to round four and keep alive their challenge for a possible four trophies this season.
Standing in their way are Everton, still reeling from a 4-1 home loss to Brighton & Hove Albion that has piled pressure on manager Frank Lampard. However, having held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw in their last visit to the city, the Toffees might believe an upset is on the cards away from the pressures of Premier League football.
