In pictures: Manchester United survive scare against Preston in the FA Cup

Preston North End

Manchester United came from a goal down to beat Preston North End to set up a quarter final tie against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Manchester United survived a scare in the FA Cup at Deepdale last night as they came from behind to beat Preston North End 3-1 to set up a quarter-final tie with Arsenal next month.

Scott Laird gave the League One side the lead just after the interval, with United looking towards joining the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham out of the competition because of an upset.

Ander Herrera equalised for the visitors before Marouane Fellaini put them in front. Wayne Rooney rounded off the scoring from the penalty spot after winning the penalty in controversial fashion, with some suggesting the United captain went to ground easily in order to win the spot-kick.

While it may be heartbreak for the home side, they managed to do themselves proud against their more illustrious opponents.

Here are a few of the best images from last night's action:
