Gus Poyet’s side have never won England’s second cup competition, losing out to Norwich 1-0 in their only previous appearance in the final but they will be confident of securing their place in the final on Wednesday following a run of strong results recently.
The club have managed to climb off the bottom of the table in recent weeks after just one defeat in their last 7 league games and with wins over Chelsea, Everton and United since December confidence will be high within the squad.
The club have also managed to add to their ranks in January with new signings Argentine defender Santiago Vergini and Almeira goalkeeper Oscar Ustari, going straight into the squad.
Striker Steven Fletcher has suffered no adverse reaction to the Achilles problem which prevented him from starting against Southampton on Saturday and could play however Carlos Cuellar (hip) and keeper Keiren Westwood (shoulder surgery) are still out.
United meanwhile will head into the game on the back of a 3-1 loss to Chelsea, their fourth defeat of 2014. With the club out of contention in the league and out of the FA Cup, the Europa league remains their only hope of a domestic trophy this season.
The absence of Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie has severely impacted United this season however the pair are set for a timely return after resuming training on Monday following groin and thigh injuries.
Manager David Moyes needs to decide, given the importance of the game, if the pair will start the game but with the pressure mounting it is likely they will see some action.
As has been the case so often this season Moyes will once again be without a key man with Nemanja Vidic suspended following his red card against Chelsea. The defender’s place in the heart of the defence, alongside Jonny Evans, is likely to be taken by either Phil Jones or Chris Smalling.
The good news for United fans is that on the last two occasions that the club have lost the first leg of a semi-final 2-1, 2009 and 2010, they have won the cup.
