Pictures: Preston 1-3 Manchester United – Herrera and Fellaini inspire comeback

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United overcame a valiant effort from Preston North End to progress to a quarter-final tie at home to Arsenal with a 3-1 comeback victory.

Scott Laird had put the League One side ahead with a deflected effort that beat David de Gea before United stepped their game up.

Up to that point, it had been another poor and stagnant performance until Ander Herrera scrambled the ball over the line shortly after.

From there, the momentum swung United’s way and Marouane Fellaini soon put the visitors ahead before a late Wayne Rooney penalty sealed United’s progress.

Here’s a selection of the best images from Monday night:
