Young Reds head to Swansea

Manchester United are back on the FA Youth Cup trail on Thursday night with Swansea City providing the opposition.

The fifth-round tie takes place at the Liberty Stadium (19:00 GMT kick-off) and is live on MUTV as Paul McGuinness' side look to continue the defence of the trophy won last term.

The young Swans, managed by Tony Pennock, have already dumped Liverpool and Portsmouth out of the competition and will provide another stiff test for the Reds' teenagers.

United have seen off Torquay United and Derby County in previous rounds and are looking to bounce back from last weekend's 4-1 defeat to Everton in the Premier Academy League.

Adnan Januzaj and Mats Daehli could return in midfield after beginning Saturday's match on the bench.
