Victory would effectively secure a top-four spot for the Red Devils, while Aston Villa are looking for back-to-back top-flight wins for the first time this calendar year.

United were due to host bitter rivals Liverpool on Sunday, but the game was postponed after hundreds of fans broke into Old Trafford in protest at the club’s owners, the Glazer family.

The hosts would effectively secure a top-four spot next season with victory over their greatest enemies, while Liverpool have a lot more work to do to clinch Champions League football themselves.

Having fallen short in four semi-finals in the last two seasons, the Red Devils were looking to underline their progress by reaching their first final under the 1999 treble hero.

Leeds have impressed on their return to this level of football and currently sit 10th in the table, while Man United occupy second spot, seven points clear of third-placed Leicester City.

Spurs are currently sixth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed West Ham United, while second-placed Man United are relatively secure in the Champions League spots with eight games left.

The Nigerian striker opened the scoring for the hosts midway through the first half, as he netted his sixth goal in his last four matches with the simplest of finishes.

The two clubs are both pushing for a top-four finish in the Premier League, but will be viewing the FA Cup as a very realistic route to silverware alongside their impressive top-flight exploits.

With the Europa League trip to AC Milan and FA Cup quarterfinal at Leicester coming up before the international break, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side kicked off an important week with a solid performance on Sunday
