Louis Van Gaal and his underperforming United team will make the 90 minute journey down to Greenhous Meadow today to take on league one side Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup.

This is the first time that these two sides have ever met in any competition but Shrewsbury are used to having the elite visit as they entertained Everton in the same competition in 2003.

Shrewsbury Town have reached the quarter finals of the FA Cup twice before and this arguably another chance to spring an upset and inflict more misery on United who are decimated by injuries.

The Shrews have bounced up and down regularly over the years between the first and second divisions and this season they may well drop back into the second division with results at the weekend meaning they have fallen into the drop zone once again.

It's a shame because the new stadium is a fantastic venue and much better than the old “Gay Meadow” where there used to be several staff on hand in canoes on the river Severn to catch the stray balls as they sailed over the main stand.

Shrewsbury's home form has been a mixed bag of disappointment. Fewer wins and goals than anyone else in the league on their home patch and have given this cup run an escape from the drudgery for fans and there is a small glimmer of hope that they might actually pull off a massive upset.

For United, losing to Sunderland was for many the last straw and then the defeat by Midtylland piled on the misery. It is hard to see how Van Gaal can continue in his position if they lose tonight with the abject performances turning fans off in droves.

The problem is that stack of injuries that United currently have and fans won't accept that as an excuse for losing. Shorn of as many as 14 regular first team players United are struggling to make up the numbers.

Even with those injuries though it is difficult to see a team containing Martial, Carrick, Depay and Herrara losing this one.
