Man Utd boss Solskjaer welcomes Watford FA Cup draw; happy for Marine

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has welcomed their FA Cup draw with Watford.

Solskjaer admits getting a home third round draw is a boost.

He said, “I think so. In the FA Cup, you can get drawn away from home in every single round, like we were last season, and it adds to the load for the players, so to get a home draw is always good. We know Watford are in a good moment. We've got Jimmy [Garner] there and he's played well for them this season. We've been following him."

Solskjaer is also delighted for Marine and their plum tie against Tottenham.

He added: “Yes, it's brilliant. The third round, for me, is the most fantastic round because anything can happen in the draw. Of course, we could have had an easier draw, but we'll take a home one."
