Manchester United have been drawn away to League Two Yeovil Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Yeovil are the lowest ranked side left in the competition, and the game will be played at Huish Park, which has a capacity of less than 10,000. Also, and if you’ll forgive us a moment’s excitement, LOOK AT THAT MASCOT.

LOOK AT IT.

LOOK AT ITS FACE.

Curiously enough, United have played Yeovil relatively recently: a third round tie in January 2015. That game wasn’t exactly a stroll, and was still goalless after an hour, with Louis van Gaal’s wingbacks failing to tear the lowly opposition apart. But in the end goals from Ander Herrera and Angel di Maria saw United through. Obviously, it’s the result that’s the most important thing in potential banana-skin scenarios — skinarios? — like these, and if you offered Jose Mourinho a similar performance and result right now, he’d shake you by the hand before getting Rui Faria to bite it off.

The game will be played on the weekend on the 27th of January. In the mean time, LOOK AT ITS FACE. LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT ITS FACE.
