Every time it looks like there will be a revival at Old Trafford, something happens to derail Manchester United.

But has there been a new dawn? Can the Red Devils, which look to be getting some support coming in from Portugal in Bruno Fernandes, move into the F.A. Cup Fourth Round?

Wolverhampton has been a tough opponent for United, but with Nemanja Matic at the DM, the Red Devils have shored it up defensively this season. Expect him to once again make his presence known, and for someone (maybe Mason Greenwood or Marcus Rashford) to find the net for the hosts.
