Yeovil Town vs Man Utd: TV channel, stream, kick-off time, odds & match preview

The Red Devils face the lowest ranked team left in the competition, hoping to avoid an upset with Alexis Sanchez likely to make his debut

Manchester United travel to League Two side Yeovil Town on Friday looking to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Red Devils could hand a debut to new signing Alexis Sanchez who signed for the Red Devils on Monday. Jose Mourinho indicated that Sanchez is likely to feature in the game and maintained he would field a strong starting line-up despite being three tiers above his cup opponents.

For Yeovil, the game is a distraction from the league as they are currently battling relegation and sit 21st, just two points above the drop zone.

Defenders James, Mugabi, N. Smith, Dickson, Whelan, Sowunmi
Midfielders Green, Gray, Bird, Wing, C. Smith, Alefe Santos
Forwards Surridge, Zoko, Barnes, Golubickas

Midfielder Otis Khan's five match ban will begin on Friday against Manchester United. The 22-year-old was sent off for pushing referee Kevin Johnson during Saturday's 2-1 loss to Chesterfield Town. Yeovil appealed the suspension, but it was upheld on Wednesday.

Omar Sowunmi is a doubt for the FA Cup clash after missing last weekend's game through illness and underwent a heart scan on Monday.

Potential Yeovil starting XI: Krysiak, James, Mugabi, N. Smith, Dickson, Green, Gray, Bird, Wing, Surridge, Zoko.

Position Manchester United players
Goalkeepers De Gea, Romero, Pereira
Defenders Lindelof, Jones, Rojo, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Valencia, Young, Darmian
Midfielders Pogba, Mata, Lingard, Carrick, Herrera, Fellaini, Matic, McTominay
Forwards Sanchez, Lukaku, Martial, Rashford

Sanchez is likely to make his debut after signing from Arsenal, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan heading the other direction. Axel Tuanzebe also left the club this week, joining Aston Villa on loan for the rest of the season.

Mourinho mentioned Jesse Lingard and Scott McTominay in his pre-match press conference, and both could start against Yeovil. He confirmed that Sanchez will play, but did not indicate whether he was a definite starter.

Potential Man Utd starting XI:  Romero, Young, Lindelof, Rojo, Shaw, Fellaini, Blind, McTominay, Lingard, Alexis, Rashford.

The big talking point will surely be the debut of Sanchez, who spent four seasons at Arsenal and scored 80 goals in 165 games for the club. The Chilean won the FA Cup twice with the Gunners, so is very familiar with the competition and will be eager to show his new club what he can offer.

Mourinho may also use the game to assess the strength in depth of his squad, giving some fringe players a chance to impress. However, he needs to be wary of a potential upset from Yeovil, who are playing in front of their home support and have already eliminated Southend, Port Vale and Bradford City from the competition.

Yeovil manager Darren Way has claimed he will go all out to upset United despite being the lowest ranked team left in the FA Cup. Way is content with a draw, telling BBC that "Our minimum aim is to take United back to Old Trafford for a replay."
