Good afternoon comrades, and welcome to Republik of Mancunia's Live Blog coverage of Manchester United v Sunderland at Old Trafford. On paper, this is one of the kinder fixtures left to play this season, but with the pressure on to secure a top four place, will the reds be able to hold their nerve?

An excruciating defeat at the Liberty Stadium last weekend now leaves Manchester United in a precarious position in their attempts to regain Champions League football at the first time of asking. Having looked relatively sub-standard for some time whilst still grinding out positive results, ironically it was a more improved showing from Louis van Gaal's side which saw them succumb to Garry Monk's Swansea for the second time this season, and just their first defeat in twenty matches.

A somewhat improved –albeit not spectacular – performance over Preston North End see's United through to the Quarter-Final of the FA Cup where a tricky home tie with Arsenal lies in waiting. Focus instead shifts back to the Premier League this weekend, with a trip to South Wales in an attempt to tie down Champions League qualification.

It can be taxing work being a young footballer. While clubs like Manchester United can give trainees the best possible platform and highest tuition for them to make a success of their career, the players themselves are required to work effortlessly to prove they offer more than just potential.

On some occasions – perhaps at Manchester United more so than most other clubs – players are given opportunities to fulfil on their promise and establish themselves as a key first team figure.

As we begin to enter the business end of the season, with important games coming thick and fast, it's important for United to kick into next gear, starting with a tricky FA Cup fifth round away tie at Deepdale.

In truth, things are nowhere near as depressing for United as most would have you believe, as the Reds have picked up 34 Premier League points from their last fifteen matches, more than any other side in the division.

After Tuesday's victory over Cambridge secured United's passage into the fifth round of the FA Cup – where Louis van Gaal has all but promised success – attention once again turns back to the Premier League and the quest to secure Champions League football for next season.

That victory, albeit at home, saw United score three times for the second game in succession following as close to a convincing performance as we have delivered in some time against bottom of the table, Leicester.

Good evening comrades, and welcome to Republik of Mancunia's Live Blog coverage of Manchester United's FA Cup fourth round replay tie against Cambridge. Shall we do it properly this time then?

Cambridge Replay: Five Keys To Victory

Call it what you will, a spirited performance from plucky underdogs Cambridge (if that makes you feel better), or an unacceptable, shambolic Manchester United performance. Either way, the outcome remains the same as United's 0-0 draw with the League Two minnows at the Abbey Stadium brings an FA Cup 4th Round replay at Old Trafford this evening.

Well lets make no mistake about it, last Friday's dismal 0-0 draw with totally unacceptable. United's shortcomings were seemingly paled into relative insignificance just 24 hours later with the likes of Chelsea, City, Southampton and Spurs all falling to lesser fancied sides, yet it's hard to take too much solace given our ineptitude to take care of the League Two minnows.

You know how the old saying goes, you wait ages for a bus and then two come along at once. Nine FA Cup ties in succession had brought challenges from fellow Premier League opposition until a surprise third round draw with Yeovil this year.That may not have been the plain sailing we'd perhaps have hoped for, but Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria goals at Huish Park secured United's place in the pot for round four, where a match up with League Two outfit Cambridge United at Abbey Stadium lies in waiting.

Away points have been hard to come by for Louis van Gaal's side this season, which will prove no different this Saturday with a vital trip to Loftus Road. United's performances have been way below par of late, ever since appearing from the second half at White Hart Lane in our final match of 2014.

No you're not imagining it. Manchester United go into their second tie with Southampton in little over a month with just one name on the first team injury list. Just one. Ashley Young remains the solo casualty in Louis van Gaal's squad, with a hamstring injury due to keep the England international out for around six weeks.

More failure at the Britannia in United's attempts to recover lost ground over the Premier League's top two confirms that the club's most likely avenue for silverware this season will come through the FA Cup. The competition's joint most successful team with 11 titles begin their campaign this year with a trip to Huish Park, Yeovil and without tasting success in over a decade.

Rewind a year. As another year notched on the calendar, United entered 2014 in lowly 7th place, preparing for what would be a 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham – our sixth loss in the league that season. Despite being just two points better off at the turn of the year this time around, things are feeling infinitely better.

Is it just me, or are things beginning to feel a little 2012/13? Robin van Persie is consistently scoring, Wayne Rooney is effective in a central midfield position (minus the transfer request), Liverpool flirt with mid-table mediocrity and – most importantly of all – United are consistently winning matches.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? A resounding 3-0 victory over Liverpool last week sees United travel to Villa Park on Saturday having put together six wins in succession.

Further woes for Southampton leave Louis van Gaal's side three points ahead of fourth placed West Ham, with the Saints and Arsenal a further two points adrift.

A fourth consecutive victory for United on Tuesday night leaves the Reds on the cusp of returning to the top three of English football, remarkably for the first time since the opening weekend of last season.

Marouane Fellaini continued his impressive form scoring the game's opener, before a teasing Juan Mata free-kick found its way past Asmir Begovic to seal United's victory after a Steven N'Zonzi equaliser and continue their crusade to return towards the Premier League's summit.

In the modern era, any Arsenal v Manchester United offering has signified a table topping battle for domestic glory and all-important bragging rights. This season's first serving may represent a slightly less appealing dish as a result of each side's positively under-whelming beginning to proceedings.

Stoke City are the visitors to Old Trafford this evening as United look to put together a fourth straight victory with Southampton's third place coming increasingly within touching distance for Louis van Gaal's side.

United's emphatic victory over Hull City on Saturday was marred only by a hamstring injury suffered by Angel Di Maria, which will rule the Argentine out of tonight's visit of Stoke.

Last weekend's 2-1 victory over Arsenal could be described as many things; undeserved, lucky, a robbery, a tactical masterstroke? Whichever way you'd wish to label it, it was undeniably both hilarious and brilliant at the same time. With some firmly set in panic stations wondering how a fourth placed finish could possibly be attainable after a start worse than under David Moyes left pondering as three points at the Emirates leave United in fourth place (who would have thought), two points ahead of Arsenal and Everton and five clear of both Liverpool and Tottenham.

United welcome the visit of bitter rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford this afternoon having now put together a run of five consecutive wins. A 2-1 victory at St Mary's on Monday evening ensured the Reds moved back into the top three after an injury-ravaged opening to the season.

In truth, besides the three points it's hard to take too many positives away from night's lacklustre performance.

Louis van Gaal feels that United were unlucky against Swansea today, after dominating the game but losing 2-1.

Of course you can say we dominated the game but the only thing we could have done more was score more out of the chances we created. Today we were the unlucky team. I think we created enough chances.

Mata: One of my most important goals

Juan Mata came off the bench to win the game for United today against Crystal Palace and hailed the goal as one of his most important.

It was probably one of my most important goals. It was a very difficult game. We needed the three points and I am very happy because we got them and that is exactly what the supporters deserve.
