Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will be pleased with the way his team secured a win in the Premier League last night against Burnley, after securing a point against West Ham last weekend.
It’s a change of opponent and competition this Monday against Preston, but the Dutchman showed with his teams in both games against Cambridge in the last round, that he’s not taking this competition lightly.
It’s a good chance for any players coming into the side to show the boss why they deserve to be in the team on a consistent basis.
It’s also a chance for the more established members of the first team to get some form under their belts and maintain the momentum they have built over the last couple of games.
The FA Cup is arguably United’s best chance of winning silverware this season and that’s something not to be sniffed at as the team continues their battle alongside this competition for a place in the top four of the Premier League.
Here’s the possible side that LvG could go with.
Manchester United: Valdes, McNair, Smalling, Evans, Rojo, Valencia, Herrera, Rooney, Di Maria, Wilson, Falcao
