Derby County Preview – Can Derby make life difficult for United ?

Derby’s recent 3-1 win away from home at Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship could serve as a timely boost ahead of their FA Cup clash with Premier League Manchester United as The Rams look to continue their good work at Pride Park where the hosts have lost just twice all season in the second tier.

Despite defeats to Bristol City and QPR which were both away from home, Derby will still remain confident that they can hold their own and cause Manchester United problems in their own backyard as The Rams are unbeaten in their last 7 matches at home in all competitions.

This decent spell of results have seen Derby pick up 5 wins and 2 draws while the bigger picture shows that Philip Cocu’s side have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 17 matches overall in all competitions.

Let’s not forget though that they’ll be up against Premier League opposition so perhaps backing the hosts with the handicap may prove to be more prudent.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals

Manchester United Preview – Can Man Utd continue good form?

A 1-1 draw away at Everton last weekend in the Premier League extended Manchester United’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 8 matches without a loss, and the visitors also inched closer to Chelsea and the top four of the top flight.

United have made slow but steady progress in recent weeks under Solskjaer as The Red Devils have registered 5 wins and 3 draws which include a 6-0 thrashing of League Two outfit, Tranmere Rovers, in the previous round of the FA Cup.

The visitors also bring a 5-match unbeaten run away from home into this cup clash but it’s interesting to note that United have managed to win by a 2+ goal margin in just 3 of their last 15 matches on their travels in all competitions.

This therefore gives Derby a chance of at least keepings the result close here tonight.
