Manchester United v Crawley Town.

Now, there’s a tie to restore faith in the poor old FA Cup, which is treated with such contempt by too many managers nowadays.

A Theatre of Dreams, indeed, for the first non-league side to reach the last 16 for 17 years.

Crawley are a very decent and wealthy outfit, as Swindon, Derby and Torquay have already discovered to their cost.

They will go to Old Trafford actually believing they can cause United problems.

But if they fail, which most suspect they will, the day will earn them £1m to remember always.
