Confirmed Starting XI: Alexis Sanchez starts for Manchester United

Manchester United will be looking to continue their winning run of 2018 winning all four matches of the year so far. United will travel to Huish Park to take on Yeovil Town in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup, a familiar ground as United played a match here during the 2014/15 season where United won 2-0 with Ander Herrera scoring in the 64th minute and Angel Di Maria scoring a goal in stoppage time. This time, with Jose Mourinho as the manager, not Louis van Gaal, United will be seeking a better result as it took more than an hour for United to break the League Two side down. It has been a good week for United supporters with Alexis Sanchez being confirmed as a United player on Monday and Mourinho signing a new contract earlier on Thursday.

Manchester United:

Romero;

Darmian, Lindelof, Rojo, Shaw;

Carrick, Herrera;

Mata. McTominay, Alexis;

Rashford

Substitutes:

Pereira; Smalling, Young; Lingard, Matic, Gomes; Lukaku

Manchester United and Yeovil Town have played three competitive matches in the history of both clubs – all in the FA Cup. The first match was played on the 8th January 1938 at Old Trafford – a 3-0 victory for United with Thomas Bamford, Stan Pearson, and Henry Baird scoring the goals. The next match came just over a decade later but was played at Maine Road after the damage caused to Old Trafford by German bombers during World War II. United won that match 8-0 with Jack Rowley scoring five goals, Ronnie Burke scoring a brace and Charlie Mitten scoring the other goal in the game. United last played Yeovil just over three years ago, winning 2-0 with Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria scoring the goals at Huish Park.
