Captain Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao, Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw all start.

Van Gaal said about the FA Cup: "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."

Defender Phil Jones, who is not in the squad today, added: "It won't be an easy game down there. Some people might think we'll go and walk all over Yeovil but it won't be like that at all. It will be a difficult game for us but we'll prepare right. The FA Cup is a massive competition, especially for the British lads who grew up watching it, but everyone wants to play in it."

Man Utd XI: De Gea, Smalling, McNair, Blackett, Rafael, Fletcher, Herrera, Rooney, Shaw, Wilson, Falcao.

Subs: Lindegaard, Evans, Anderson, Lingard, Mata, Januzaj, Di Maria.
