Rooney is raring to complete his cup collection!

It’s one trophy Wayne Rooney hasn’t won before, so Luke Shaw says Man. United are going all out for the FA Cup – especially now with Man. City and Chelsea out of the picture.

Louis Van Gaal has even told journalists to put a bet on the Red Devils lifting the trophy, which means he’s not betting on League One Preston ‘doing a Bradford’ and dumping out another Prem giant!

THE STATS

This is Preston and United’s first clash in 43 years, when United earned a 2-0 FA Cup fourth round away win!

Preston gaffer Simon Grayson bossed Leeds to a shock 1-0 third round win at Old Trafford in 2010 – and the goalscorer Jermaine Beckford is on loan at Deepdale!

TEAM NEWS

Preston have re-signed Aston Villa youngster Callum Robinson on loan after the forward scored five goals in 11 games in his first spell this season!

Michael Carrick’s calf injury will keep Man. United’s vice-captain out for another fortnight!

Jermaine Beckford missed the match with an ear infection – he scored when Leeds beat United in the FA Cup in 2010!

Phil Jones and Daley Blind are rated doubtful after coming off early in the win against Burnley!

BIG GAME FOR...

WELSH

Preston’s captain is a scouser and came through Liverpool’s academy – so a result against United would be extra sweet for him!

EBANKS-BLAKE

This dude left Cambridge aged 15 to join Man. United’s youth teams, and scored one goal for the Reds in the League Cup!

GALLAGHER

On loan from Leicester, he’s PNE’s penalty and free-kick specialist – as Sheffield United found out in the last round!

ROJO

The summer signing has won over the fans as United’s best defender this season. His technical ability will help stifle Preston’s attack!

BLIND

While Carrick has been out, long-pass pinger Blind has been staking a strong claim to be United’s chief midfield conductor!

JANUZAJ

The silky Belgian stay put in the transfer window – the FA Cup is his stage to impress the manager and earn more minutes!
