Manchester United are back in action tonight, when they take on League Two side Yeovil Town in the FA Cup at Huish Park. The Red Devils are heavy favorites going into the tie and are expected to breeze past their fourth-tier opposition.
However, they could be in for a shock, with the FA Cup often producing many giant-killing moments. Here are the three things to look forward to in the game.
3. Possible Debut for Alexis Sanchez
The Chile international completed his move to Old Trafford from Arsenal on Monday and is expected to be included in the squad for tonight's game. Sanchez has become the highest paid player in the club's history and his debut will surely excite the traveling supporters.
The 29-year-old has shown his respect and ambition for the FA Cup during his time with Arsenal, scoring plenty of goals in the competition, and it would be quite fitting if he opens his account for United tonight.
2. Can Yeovil Town recreate the magic of the FA Cup?
Over the years, the FA Cup has produced many giant-killings and that has been one of the major attractions of this competition. Yeovil Town may be 21st in the fourth tier of English football but in the FA Cup, anything can happen.
Jose Mourinho will be vary of every single possibility tonight having been on the wrong end of many upsets over the past few years.
1. Strong Man United lineup expected
While other managers might give their fringe players a chance in such ties, Mourinho is not expected to do the same, though second choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero will ideally start ahead of David de Gea.
Other than that, not many changes are expected from Mourinho who looks set to mount an FA Cup challenge this season.
