Cambridge United v Man Utd - Match Lineup & Team News

Manchester United 3

Here is how Cambridge and Manchester United will line up for today’s FA Cup clash at the Abbey Stadium....

A former Dons player is the highlight of the Cambridge team. Luke Chadwick spent five years at the club and win a Champions League medal whilst a youngster at United.

But he was an injury doubt for the game with a knee problem. However new loan signing Dominic Ball from Tottenham is available after joining from Tottenham. Jordan Chiedoze, Johnny Hunt ans Matteo Lanzoni are all cup tied.

Manchester United are 11 time FA Cup champions will want to avoid the embarrassment that came with their League Cup exit against MK Dons.

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has overcome an ankle issue and is available for selection. Luke Shaw and Rafael are also back in action but Ashley Young, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling are not available.

Victor Valdes was rumoured to be set to make his debut for the club since joining on a free, but has missed out on this occasion.

The two teams have met just twice before, Ryan Giggs, Steve Bruce and Brian McClair scoring in a 3-0 win for United in the first leg of a League Cup tie and a Dion Dublin goal for Cambridge partnered by a McClair strike for a 1-1 draw in the second leg.

Manchester United will be the favourites, but will know too well that nothing can be taken for granted in the FA Cup.
