It is quite interesting that Aldridge wants Everton to win against United, especially as he is a former Liverpool player.
Liverpool, though, are also fierce rivals with United, and maybe the former Republic of Ireland international is backing the Toffees for that reason.
The Red Devils are also in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League, while Jurgen Klopp’s side have an outside chance of claiming a Champions League spot.
Everton’s league campaign is over, and FA Cup success is the only way that Roberto Martinez’s side can salvage their season.
The Toffees will head into the game against United on the back of a 4-0 defeat to Liverpool away from home at Anfield in the Merseyside derby in the Premier League.
