Louis van Gaal, who succeeded David Moyes, named a strong United starting XI for the fixture, with captain Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao, Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw all featuring.


Van Gaal said about the FA Cup before the start of the match: "You never know what might happen in a cup match. You have to win because you will be out if you lose. We have to beat Yeovil, but every team in England wants to beat Manchester United so it will be difficult. Everything about playing a lower league team – the pitch, the stadium – will be difficult."
