“At the moment that’s happening. But I think they have to win a trophy to go with that and go a step further than they did last season.”
Fellow pundit Roy Keane agreed that United must not let this chance of securing silverware slip away.
“Well you need to start somewhere and I think this is the trophy that realistically have their best chance of this season,” he said.
“A one-off semi-final against your local rivals at home, if they can get a win, continue their decent home form which was really poor at the start of the season. I think will be massive. A really important game for Man United tonight.
