United conceded an injury-time equaliser in a 1-1 draw at a snowy White Hart Lane last weekend, allowing champions Manchester City to breathe new life into the title race by cutting their rivals' lead to five points.

United have gone nine years without winning the FA Cup, leading manager Alex Ferguson to state that he wants his side "to try and have a go" at it in the current campaign.
