Preston North End v Manchester United: match preview

Louis van Gaal's side face Preston North End in the fifth-round of the FA Cup on Monday night, looking to book their place in the quarter-final of the competition.

The United boss might have heard of what surprise the Preston manager Simon Grayson and his striker Jermaine Beckford pulled at Old Trafford five years ago, when the pair visited United with Leeds in the third round. Therefore, the Dutchman will be fully prepared for this encounter.

Beckford, who scored the winning goal on that glorious night Leeds United beat the Reds is a doubt for the clash and Preston have got some momentum at the minute with three straight victories.

Preston predicted starting XI: Davies, Garner, Gallagher, Humphrey, Welsh, Laird, Wiseman, Clarke, Huntington, Wright, Stuckmann.
