How to watch and live stream Tranmere v Man Utd

Man Utd face Tranmere in a hastily-arranged FA Cup fourth round clash

Manchester United FA Cup

Manchester United take on Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup fourth round this afternoon just two full days since finding out their opponents.


League One Tranmere shocked Premier League Watford during Thursday night’s third round replay.

The game had to be postponed earlier in the month due to a waterlogged pitch, leading to the quick turnaround ahead of today’s game.

United are stuttering at the moment following a dire 2-0 home defeat to struggling Burnley in the top flight last week.

Tranmere’s awful pitch is likely to unsettle United event further, though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows anything less than a confident victory could be cataclysmic for his tenure as boss.

Who will win? Potts predicts…

With Manchester United, who knows any more?

To suggest United are anything but heavy favourites in this one would be a knee-jerk reaction. They’re fifth in the Premier League for a reason.

They will not like the pitch but senior players in the squad should be drumming up an angry, fiery reaction in the dressing room to exorcise the Burnley demons and silence the doubters.


Prediction: Tranmere 1-3 Man Utd
