Louis van Gaal will take his men to Huish Park Stadium as Manchester United take on Yeovil Town in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 3:30pm GMT. Live coverage is on BT Sport 1. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Yeovil Town are not enjoying a great run in the last few matches as they lost the last three matches, scoring one goal and conceding six goals in the process. After being relegated from the Championship last season, Gary Johnson's side are now featuring in the League One.

The fixture against United will be a big match in the hosts' history as they will be looking for a massive upset on Sunday. The Red Devils were knocked out of the Capital One Cup after suffering a 4-0 defeat at the hands of MK Dons last August.

United, on the other hand are unbeaten in the last 10 matches and Louis van Gaal will be hoping his side can extend that run when they face Yeovil Town in the FA Cup clash. After a disappointing Capital One Cup clash, the Dutchman will be eyeing to progress further in the FA Cup.

Last time United were knocked out of the FA Cup by Swansea City in the third round, when David Moyes was their manager. Things have changed since the Scot was shown the exit door and the Premier League outfit will be targeting an easy win over the League One side.

What Managers Say

Gary Johnson: "This club has a special reputation in the FA Cup. In their days before we got into the League they knocked out 17 League clubs, and you have to feel it would be good to add to that story if we can against one of the biggest clubs in world football."

Louis van Gaal: "It's the shortest way to success. You are right – we are very interested. And I think my players [are] also. In the Netherlands we have known for many years that the FA Cup is one of the most important competitions in football. The FA Cup was shown on the television over there at a time when it was not common to show matches from other countries."
