Tranmere vs Man United: League One minnows Tranmere Rovers beat Watford this week, winning the chance to take on Manchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup. It will be one of the biggest matches in the club’s history and they take on the Red Devils at their most vulnerable, following a string of disappointing results.
Tranmere’s 2-1 replay win over Watford on Thursday was a landmark win for the Merseyside club. Now, they’ve got an ever bigger task on their hands as they prepare to take on Manchester United, who currently sit fifth in the Premier League.

How to watch FA Cup football wherever you are
If you aren’t sure if you can access BT Sport in your country, then the best way to get around your issues might be a VPN. That’s because access to normal coverage might be geo-blocked – that is, you are prevented from watching outside your home country, usually due to rights reasons.
VPNs encrypt and anonymise your data and enable you to appear as if you are watching from your home country, so they are useful for much more than entertainment.

Tranmere vs Man United match preview
United’s recent form has been a continual comedy of errors, with Wednesday’s home loss to Burnley looking like a real low point for the club. Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay have both been missing for some time and are not expected to return on Sunday. The team have struggled without them and turned in some horrendous performances.
That will give Tranmere some hope in a fixture that, otherwise, sees the Manchester club as firm favourites, despite United losing their last two games convincingly.
Tranmere have recent history against the reds too, beating their youth team last month in a Leasing.com Trophy game.
It’s a season where the FA Cup is undeniably important for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reds, with no other obvious route to silverware, so expect the weakened United side to pull out all the stops this Sunday.
All in all, this game is a classic FA Cup David vs Goliath match. It’s well worth tuning in on BT Sport to watch.
