Manchester United Preview – Will the Red Devils extend unbeaten run?

Manchester United have made a big improvement on the pitch since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was replaced by Ralf Rangnick. The Red Devils have suffered just one defeat since the change of management, and they head into this cup tie having won three and drawn one of their past four.

In the third round of the FA Cup, the Red Devils squeezed past fellow Premier League side Aston Villa. An eighth-minute Scott McTominay header was enough to give United a 1-0 victory over Steven Gerrard’s troops.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

The Manchester giants have a proud history in this competition, and this class of United players will want to go far this season. They should get past Championship opposition on Friday night.

Middlesbrough Preview – Can in-form Boro cause an upset at Old Trafford?

Former Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder is doing a fine job at Middlesbrough at present. Since taking the Riverside Stadium hotseat back in November, Wilder has guided the Blades to eight wins from 12 league and cup fixtures.

After their five-game winning streak was ended by Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough bounced back with a vital 1-0 home success over Coventry City last time out. Boro’s main aim will be promotion, but the Steel City club would no doubt welcome a decent cup run this term.

Wilder’s side beat Mansfield Town in a five-goal thriller in round three, with an injury-time own goal putting them through. Of course, this will be a far greater task for the North Yorkshire club. The bookies have the away win priced at 15/2.
