Louis van Gaal's team have narrowly avoided potential FA Cup upsets against minnows Yeovil and Cambridge this term and really should not be taking victory without any consideration into their first encounter with Preston since 1972.

"Could they be enjoying it almost as much ast they accustomed to? I would not get that impression. They're fantastic players but I do not think they're living nearly expectations."
