Manchester United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has vowed to put out his “best possible team” against Aston Villa on Monday.
The Red Devils begin their FA Cup campaign with a home tie against the Midlands club on Monday.
United have not lifted a trophy since lifting the Europa League under Jose Mourinho and Rangnick will be eyeing this competition as a possible route to silverware.
“I’ve always been a big fan, supporter and admirer of the FA Cup.
“For me it’s a very important competition. We will definitely try to play with our best possible team in that game and a strong team. We take the game as seriously as we can and hopefully get one round further ahead but in order to do that we have to be successful against Aston Villa.
“We know it will not be an easy game because especially since they change managers they have been doing well. They won four games and lost four games, three of them against the top team. It needs a top performance from us to be successful,” Rangnick said.
