United will be hoping to progress in the coveted domestic competition and are sure to be reasonably content with their draw against Derby, who are currently competing in the Championship.
The Rams are currently managed by Gary Rowett and have been in good form throughout the course of the season so far. Derby sit in sixth place and will be hopeful of securing a position in the play-offs as they look to come back up to the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho is sure to see this as a good opportunity to utilise his squad, with the fixtures set to be played between January 5th to the 8th.
