Manchester United will take on Preston North End in the fifth round of the FA Cup clash at Deepdale Stadium on Monday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is at 7.45pm GMT. Live coverage is on BBC One UK. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Preston come into this game after their 2-0 victory over Chesterfield in the last League One clash last midweek. After a disappointing run in January where they went without a win in seven consecutive matches, they have bounced back in recent times.

Simon Grayson's side registered victories in the last three matches and at the same time have conceded only one goal and two clean sheets. The Lancashire club will be looking for an upset when they take on the Premier League giants on Monday.

Louis van Gaal

United, on the other hand, enter this fixture after a 3-1 victory over Burnley at Old Trafford in the last league clash. Louis van Gaal saw his side struggling early in the game as Danny Ings's header helped his side cancel Chris Smalling's early goal.

Burnley dominated United in the first half and Smalling's second goal before the break gave United the much needed lead. It was Robin van Persie's strike from the spot kick that sealed the game.

Van Gaal will be hoping to register a victory over Preston in order to progress to the next round of the FA Cup.

What They Say

Simon Grayson: "This tie does a lot for the football club. It lifts the profile, it will be a fantastic atmosphere, brings in vital revenue and we have to go out and enjoy it and see where it takes us. We have nothing to lose and Manchester United certainly has."

Louis van Gaal: "It's always the same because you know the world is for the underdog and we have to play away under the same circumstances as at Cambridge or Yeovil [Town in the third round], so it shall be very difficult.It's our goal to win a [trophy] and I hope to win one for the fans of Manchester United."
