Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup Prediction & Betting Odds – 19th May 2018

Manchester United
Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup, 19th May 5.15pm Will it be Chelsea or Manchester United getting their hands on a piece of silverware this season in the FA Cup final at Wembley on the weekend? There has been no love lost between the two managers this season and there is plenty of speculation as to whether or not this will be Antonio Conte’s last game in charge of the Blues. Manchester United did pretty well against the other top six rivals in the Premier League this season, so can they take down the disjointed Chelsea to finish the season on a high?

Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Tips

Chelsea looked as if they had played their way into a serious challenge for a top four finish in the Premier League this season. However, after their four-match winning streak, it all fell apart for them in their last two games. A home draw against Huddersfield was followed up by their worst performance of the season in suffering a three-nil loss at Newcastle on the final day of the season. Chelsea have just looked off-colour for pretty much the entirety of the season only producing in small patches here and there. It is glaringly obvious that they are missing a big goal scoring threat up front, but they haven’t been very convincing in defence either. Will their current lack of punch going forward hinder their chances of trying to break down Manchester United’s defence? Manchester United generally play a bit conservative and so will Chelsea find the space to open them up? Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:58 p.m. on May 15th, 2018). Chelsea certainly did not look confident in their own ability at Newcastle on the weekend. Defensively they have just looked an absolute shambles at times this season a far cry from their powerful season last term. However, they do have three clean sheets in their last five games but in their final five games of the season, they only managed to score more than one goal in a game on one occasion. In the bet365 correct score market, the shortest priced option available is the 1-1 draw at 5 to 1 odds but a Manchester United 1-0 option is at 11 to 2 and pretty appealing for this FA Cup Final. Chelsea were very nearly knocked out in the third round of the FA Cup as they needed a penalty shoot-out at home against Championship Norwich to make it through. They did then have easy home wins over Newcastle and then Hull and in the quarter-finals, they needed extra time to move past Leicester at the King Power Stadium. Chelsea took a 2-0 win at Wembley over Southampton in the semi finals but didn’t have things all their own way in that game. With a second-place finish in the Premier League and a place in the FA Cup final, it has been a pretty decent season from Manchester United even though their performances have been less than spectacular. But they can finish with a bang here and they are in decent form having lost only one of the last 14 matches across all competitions. The Red Devils won 10 of those games so their form is strong. They did have to get through the end of the season without their top goalscorer, Romelu Lukaku but the Red Devils are hoping that he will be fit to start at Wembley. Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea won the Golden Gloves in the Premier League this season setting a new record for clean sheets. He really is a match winner and a game changer for United and really holds up what is a pretty average looking defence in front of him. Manchester United to win to nil at bet365 is 3/1 odds. Manchester United have not really been troubled in the FA Cup this season as they started out with a comfortable home victory over Championship side Derby. They then went out on the road to bank wins at Yeovil and then Huddersfield before beating Brighton back at Old Trafford in the quarter finals. United did not ship a single goal on their way to reaching the semi-finals. They had to go up against Spurs in the semi finals and United were underdogs for that game with Spurs in form and having played all of their home games at Wembley this season. But it was United who did come out on top, doing a great job of keeping Spurs quiet and they took a 2-1 victory for themselves. That continued the streak of the Red Devils scoring at least two goals in each and every one of their FA Cup matches this season. Even though they have been heavily criticised this season they do seem to be organised they generally stick to a conservative game plan as is generally the way with Jose Mourinho. It is the result that matters the most not the performance.

Chelsea v Manchester United head to head

From the two Premier League meetings between Chelsea and Manchester United this season they both took a home victory and both of those victories were by a one goal margin only. They were paired up in the FA Cup last season with Chelsea taking a home win over the Red Devils. Chelsea have won three of the last five meetings with Manchester United in all competitions and each of those victories they won with a clean sheet as well. From the previous fourteen FA Cup matches that these two have contested it is Manchester United who are 8-4 ahead with the two drawn matches.  

Who will win - Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions

Chelsea looked really short on confidence and quality in their defeat at Newcastle on the weekend. They can’t seem to get much going inside the opposition penalty box and Manchester United should be able to hold them at bay. The Red Devils are the stronger and more organised of the two sides and can take the victory to nil.

Manchester United v Tottenham FA Cup Prediction & Betting Odds – 21st April 2018

Tottenham
Manchester United v Tottenham FA Cup, 21st April 5.15 pm This is a heavyweight duel between two strong Premier League sides and it is Spurs who are likely to have the edge according to the bookmakers. The Lilywhites go as favourites for the fixture and this, of course, is something of a home game for them as they have been using Wembley as a temporary home this season. Will Manchester United be able to produce a solid performance over 90 minutes to fight their way past the Londoners?

Tottenham 6/5, Man Utd 23/10, Draw 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 6:50 p.m. on April 16th, 2018)

Manchester United v Tottenham FA Cup Betting Tips

United boss Jose Mourinho has said that he could well drop under-performing players for their FA Cup semi-final. That was in response to their home loss against West Brom on the weekend. You never know with Mourinho though, it could be mind games. United haven't conceded in this season’s FA Cup yet, having opened with a good win over Championship side Derby before easing past League Two side Yeovil. Following that the Red Devils Took back to back 2-0 successes over Premier League sides Huddersfield and then Brighton. So three of their four FA Cup games have ended in a 2-0 scoreline in their favour. The shortest-priced correct score option at bet365 for the game is a 1-1 at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:36 p.m. on April 18th, 2018). Manchester United won the FA Cup two seasons ago, beating Crystal Palace in the final after extra time. They need one more to draw level with Arsenal on 13 at the top of the FA Cup win charts.

FA Cup Manchester United v Tottenham 2018 Infographic

Manchester United last faced Spurs in the FA Cup in 2009. That was a fourth-round tie with United collecting a 2-1 win over the Londoners at Old Trafford. That was the 15th FA Cup meeting and things couldn't be tighter from all of that with five wins each and five draws. Both teams not to score at Bet365 for 3/4 odds has to offer some value as both teams have scored in just one of the last eight meetings. United and Spurs traded home wins this season, Spurs having won two of the last three games between the two clubs. Three of United’s FA Cup games this season have gone under the 2.5 goal line and four of the last six meetings between Tottenham and Manchester United have produced fewer than three goals. Tottenham have made hard work of their FA Cup progress this season. After opening with an easy home win over AFC Wimbledon, they needed replays back at Wembley to get past both Newport and Rochdale in subsequent rounds. They took a direct route of a 3-0 away win over Swansea in the quarter finals though. So in all but one of their six FA Cup matches this season Tottenham have managed to come up with at least two goals. Harry Kane is 3/1 bet365 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 6:50 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) for the match up. Spurs have won the FA Cup eight times before in their history, but haven’t gotten their hands on it since 1991. They haven’t even been back to the final since then either, but they are on the threshold here and go as favourites to progress.

Who will win - Manchester United v Tottenham FA Cup Predictions

The Red Devils are more likely to throw out a poor performance than the Lilywhites are and that just should leave Tottenham in the driving seat. Spurs have familiarity with the Wembley pitch and surroundings and that’s a big plus. Look for both teams to score but for Spurs to take the victory. The Londoners will have had a day's extra rest as well for this one.

Manchester United v Brighton FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 17th March 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Brighton Betting Preview - FA Cup 17th March 7.45pm Now that the FA Cup is Manchester United’s final hope of silverware this season, they are going to have to knuckle down and not take things lightly. Their midweek Champions League exit against Sevilla was a blow but they are comfortable favourites as they face up to Brighton in this one. The Seagulls though have been carrying some nice form recently, but will it be enough to cause a Cup upset?

Manchester United v Brighton FA Cup Betting Tips

The Red Devils have blown their shot at the Champions League having lost at home against Sevilla in midweek. The only silverware they can get this term now is the FA Cup. Manchester United have looked so lethargic at times this season, but when they have to up the tempo they look good. They just seem to start with a negative frame of mind. Still, they will be relatively pleased with their draw for the FA Cup quarter-final as they have a good chance of moving ahead. The home form of the Red Devils this season has been good, having won five of their last six there (L1) and suffering only two losses all season at home across all competitions. For the most part, they have been solid in defence on home soil and Manchester United to win to nil at Ladbrokes is a decent option at even money odds* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:46 p.m.). So far in the FA Cup, the Red Devils have beaten Derby, Yeovil and Huddersfield without conceding. Manchester United have won their last three home games against Brighton by a 1-0 scoreline and if you fancy a repeat of that, it is at 11/2 odds with Ladbrokes with 2-0 success for United in at a shorter price at 24/5* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:46 p.m.). United won 1-0 earlier in the season against Brighton in the Premier League and also in their last FA Cup meeting which was in 1993. Manchester United hold a W4 D2 record from their six previous FA Cup matches against Brighton. Looking back at the head to head, United have won their last four on home soil against the Seagulls without shipping a goal. Brighton are doing alright at the moment. Into the FA Cup quarter-finals, sitting around mid table in the Premier League with a good chance of survival. So they are holding their own and they have suffered only the one defeat in their last eight games across all competitions (D5 D2) so they have been playing well. They have been struggling badly for clean sheets though as they have managed one only since their FA Cup fourth round away win at Middlesbrough at the back end of January. So that’s a seven-match stretch without one for them now. Brighton have only posted three wins away from home in all competitions all season and they are W1 D3 L2 in their last six on the road, failing to net in seven of their last ten away from the south coast. Both teams not to score in the fixture with Ladbrokes is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:46 p.m.).

Manchester United v Brighton FA Cup Betting Odds*

Manchester United 4/11, Draw 15/4, Brighton 8/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:32 p.m. on March 14th, 2018)

Manchester United v Brighton FA Cup Predictions

Brighton are a much stronger side at home and therefore Manchester United should be able to grind their way through this tie. They can be frustrating to watch because they can play well when they up the tempo but like to take things slow. A repeat 1-0 home win for them over the Seagulls would not be a shock.

Huddersfield v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 17th February 2018

Huddersfield
Huddersfield v Manchester United Betting Preview - FA Cup 17th February 5.30pm Manchester United will expect to find themselves in the quarter-final draw for the FA Cup this season. After managing to avoid any of the other big guns in the fifth round draw, they get a shot against Huddersfield in what is still an all-Premier League clash. However, United comfortably beat the Terriers at Old Trafford recently in the league but slipped in their league visit to the John Smiths earlier this term.

Huddersfield v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Tips

The Red Devils took a shock 1-0 defeat out at Newcastle on the weekend in the Premier League a result which threw the top four race wide open. It’s FA Cup time for United this weekend as they go to the John Smith's where they suffered a shock defeat in this season's Premier League. The Red Devils are W6 L2 in their last eight games in all competitions and so far in their cup campaign, they have gotten past Derby and Yeovil without having conceded a goal. Manchester United to win to nil at Unibet is trading at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:36 p.m.). Each of United's last three wins against Huddersfield have been with a clean sheet. They are actually running on back to back away defeats now and the Red Devils have only gone W3 D1 L3 in their last seven games away from Old Trafford. Still, in the Unibet correct score market, the shortest priced option is a Manchester United 2-0 at 6/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:42 p.m.). United and Huddersfield have traded one win each this season. Huddersfield claimed that famous victory at home over the Red Devils back in October which was the first meeting between the two clubs since the 1971/72 season so it had been a while. In the FA Cup, there have only been the three previous meetings with the Red Devils 2-1 up from those. The most recent meeting in the FA Cup was back in 1963 with United winning 5-0 at home. Huddersfield rolled out a big 4-1 home win over Bournemouth on the weekend in the Premier League and that is their only win in their last six across all competitions (90 minutes). The Terriers were held to a 1-1 draw at home against Birmingham in the last round and needed extra time at St Andrew's to get through. The Terriers had beaten another Championship side, Bolton in the third round. That win over Bournemouth saw the Cherries snap a six-match winless streak of form that they were on at home (D3 L3) and during that spell, they had conceded at least three goals in each of those three defeats. They are not a high scoring side at all but they have scored in nine of their last eleven fixtures. Both teams to score at Unibet is at even money odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:42 p.m.). They will be going as heavy underdogs in this one and will need to call on that great fighting spirit that they have.

Huddersfield v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Odds*

Man Utd 4/11, Draw 15/4, Huddersfield 17/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 9th, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.)

Huddersfield v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions

Back Manchester United to win the game but there may be a relative lack of comfort in them doing so. The Terriers had a huge moment at home against the Red Devils this season, but seeing them pull off a repeat is a big, big ask. Manchester United to win to nil will have good appeal for the fixture. The visitors will be taking this seriously.

Yeovil v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 26th January 2018

Manchester United
Yeovil v Manchester United Betting Preview - FA Cup 26th January 7.55pm What a great evening out for Yeovil fans this is going to be as they get to host one of the top clubs in the country in the fourth round of the FA Cup. This is going to be a great night for them, even if the dreams of pulling off a giant-killing act doesn’t quite come off. Manchester United will be just looking for a professional performance to get the job done against the Glovers. It’s a glamour tie for the home side, what kind of impact will the League Two side have in the match?

Yeovil v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Tips

This is such a big occasion for the Glovers and exactly what makes the FA Cup so special. It won’t matter at the end of the day if a giant killing act happens or not for the Glovers, it has been a success in getting this far. They are struggling down near the relegation zone in League Two so the FA Cup has been light relief for them. They opened their FA Cup campaign with a win over Southend, before needing a replay to get past Port Vale in the second round. They then had a great time on home soil at Huish Park as they beat out Bradford in the last round so they eliminated higher-tiered opposition and now their chance to take down one of the biggest sides in the country is just the icing on the cake. They are probably going to be vulnerable at the back as they currently have the joint second-worst defensive record in this season’s League Two so are likely to concede. But can they get a goal on the board themselves to bring a big cheer to Huish Park? The Glovers have a good scoring streak of six matches going on home soil in all competitions so that’s there for them. They have actually only failed to score in one of their last fifteen games on home soil. A bold both teams to score wager at bet365 comes in at 4/7 odds for the game. This won't be the first time that Yeovil have met Manchester United. There is some prior FA Cup history between them having met three times before. The most recent coming together of Yeovil and Manchester United was in the 2014/15 FA Cup third round at Huish Park and the Red Devils collected a calm 2-0 victory on that occasion. United have won all three of the games between the two of them, all to nil as well. Manchester United to win to nil at bet365 is at 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken on January 23rd, 2018 at 7:08 p.m.). These games can be a little tricky for big clubs, in such much as trying to themselves going is concerned. It usually just calls for doing a professional job and you would imagine that Jose Mourinho will make sure that happens. With the EFL Cup having gone out the window this season, the FA Cup is their last genuine shot at domestic silverware for the term. That means that they should be focused even if they don’t start with their strongest eleven possible. They have the quality and the depth to get through this and a Manchester United/Manchester United half time/full time option at bet365 is at 1/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 23rd, 2018 at 7:08 p.m.). The Red Devils are currently on a four match winning streak and are unbeaten in seven. They have taken a clean sheet in each of their last five games played as well including their win over Derby in the last round.

Yeovil v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Odds*

Man Utd 1/6, Draw 6/1, Yeovil 16/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 22nd, 2018 at 7:57 p.m.)

Yeovil v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions

The Red Devils should have enough to get past whatever the Glovers can come up with on the night. United are very solid at the back and may not find themselves under too much pressure and there’s little hint of an upset happening here. Back the visitors to win with a clean sheet.

Manchester United v Derby FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th January 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Derby Betting Preview - FA Cup 5th January 8.00pm This should be a pretty good contest on Friday night in the FA Cup third round. It is Premier League versus Championship in the fixture, but the Red Devils will have their hands full against the Rams who are going strong in the push for an automatic promotion place this season. The Red Devils may have that shock EFL Cup exit against Bristol City on their minds too. Can the Rams turn up at Old Trafford and claim a major scalp for themselves?

Manchester United v Derby FA Cup Betting Tips

Manchester United may well be one of the favourites to get their hands on the FA Cup, however, they do open with a tricky fixture here. Manchester United haven't been in great form lately as they have collected one win in their last five played (D3 L1) across all competitions. They have managed just the one victory in their last four at Old Trafford as well (D2 L1) which is quite a dip in form for them. Overall though they have a really strong home record this season of W12 D2 L1 and are justifiable favourites in this FA Cup tie. They failed to score for the first time at Old Trafford this season as they played out a 0-0 draw with Southampton in the Premier League in their last home fixture. In the William Hill correct score market a Manchester United 2-0 option is the shortest price in the market at 9/2 with the 1-0 for them at 11/2. They do have ten clean sheets in their fifteen games at Old Trafford (two in their last five). It could be worth considering them to win to nil. The last time that Manchester United and Derby were paired up was in the FA Cup just a couple of years ago in January 2016. That was a clash at Pride Park which Manchester United won comfortably 3-1. That was the ninth FA Cup tie between the two of them and from those previous nine games, Manchester United are well up in the head to head with a W7 D1 L2 record. Manchester United have won each of their last three games against Derby across all competitions now and they are on a three-match winning streak at home against them too. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill is trading at 8/11 and in front of goal, Jesse Lingard has been having a really good time of things and is a 6/4 option while it is Marcus Rashford, who is just a little bit out of favour at the moment but may get his chance, is the 5/6 anytime goalscorer favorite. The Rams are really in some strong form and if they turn up with a strong starting eleven, they can compete. They are unbeaten in their last seven games with wins in five of those and they have taken five clean sheets in that sequence as well and they are carrying some strong away form as well. The Rams are on a stretch of nine away games unbeaten and they collected three clean sheets in their last four away games as well, shipping just the one goal in total in that run of road games. Derby haven’t conceded more than one goal in any of their last nine away games now in all competitions. Another positive for the Championship side is that they have scored at least two goals in five of their last seven away games. If you fancy them getting on the scoresheet, both teams to score at William Hill is a 5/4 poke. Top scorer for them this season is Matej Vydra who is a 7/2 anytime goalscorer option for the fixture. They do have promotion on their mind, but they can battle in this one.

Manchester United v Derby FA Cup Betting Odds

Man Utd 2/7, Draw 5/1, Derby 11/1

Manchester United v Derby FA Cup Predictions

Manchester United will be value to get through this and not bad value to win it to nil either. They have the match winners and home advantage which can just pull them through. Derby are going well but they are likely going to be far more focused on securing automatic promotion to the Premier League than a deep cup run.

Bristol City v Manchester United EFL Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th December 2017

Manchester United
Bristol City v Manchester United Betting Preview - EFL Cup 20th December 8.00pm This has the making of being a really good cup tie. Bristol City are a form team at the moment, challenging for promotion from the Championship this season and they have already managed to knock off three Premier League opponents on their way to this quarter final showdown. Manchester United will have a tricky job on their hands at Ashton Gate in this tie, but with the quality and experience they are carrying, they will be expected to get through.

Bristol City v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Tips

It has been a great season from Bristol City as they are sitting in third place in the Championship and in some good form as well. They have put together a four match winning streak at the moment and they have produced a fine record of W8 D1 L1 in their last ten in all competitions.So that has all been really good from them and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games as well. Their overall record at Ashton Gate in all competitions this season reads W9 D3 L2 and they have won four of their last five there. They are a really handy side going forward as can be seen by the stats and over 2.5 goals at Betfair is worth considering. Bobby Reid is their main threat up top and he will be worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market. It is a good job that the Robins are scoring well because their defence has been a little leaky as of late. Both teams have scored in eight of Bristol City’s last ten games and therefore both teams to score at Betfair has to be a really good option here at 10/11 odds. It’s been over thirty years since Bristol and Manchester United met up, their last encounters coming in the 1979/80 season of the old Division 1. This will be the first ever League Cup meeting between the two clubs. Still, even though Bristol City are in a really positive frame of mind and in good shape at the moment, they are going up against one of the best in the country. However, after opening their EFL campaign with a big win over Plymouth, the Robins have beaten Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace to get to this stage. Manchester United will be kicking off at Ashton Gate as favourites for the victory in this tie, even though it looks as if could be an uncomfortable one for them if the Robins just play their usual, positive way. The Red Devils have posted a W8 D2 L4 for the season out on their travels and they go into this one on the back of three straight away wins, scoring at least two goals in each of those three matches. A Manchester United to win by a one goal margin wager at Betfair is a decent option here as the Red Devils have been grinding out results just a little bit lately, struggling for narrow margin wins over Brighton and West Brom in their last two league games for example. You would have to consider that they are likely not going to be at full strength either and a Manchester United 2-1 correct score at Betfair is a price of 15/2.

Bristol City v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Odds

Man Utd 3/10, Draw 17/4, Bristol City 17/2

Bristol City v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions

Manchester United may just have enough quality to get through this tie, but it won’t be an easy ride for them at all. That is because they will be facing a tough side in Bristol City who will likely throw all they have at it, as there is nothing for them to lose. Back United to win by the one goal margin at Ashton Gate.

Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th March 2017

Chelsea
Chelsea v Manchester United Betting Preview - FA Cup 13th March 7.45pm Chelsea go as favourites as they play host to Manchester United for the second time this season at Stamford Bridge. It was plain sailing for the Blues as they romped to a 4-0 win over the Red Devils in the league meeting, and they go as favourites to get the better of Manchester United again. The Blues have been in immense home form winning all but one of their last sixteen games on home soil across all competitions. Will the Red Devils, who will be missing the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic, be able to stick in there against Antonio Conte’s men and take a step closer to retaining their cup title?

Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Tips

So you have some strong home form running from the Blues at Stamford Bridge this season. They have posted a tremendous W15 D0 L1 at Stamford Bridge across all competitions. In all but two of their home games this season they have scored at least two goals as well and Antonio Conte has a full, strong squad to select from for this one. In the FA Cup this season, the boss has made substantial changes to starting line ups, but they probably won’t shuffle the pack too strongly this season. Chelsea get a five-day rest before their next game, whereas Man Utd are in action on Thursday night in Europe, making their selection a bit more complicated for this FA Cup tie. The Blues have won all but one of their last 10 FA Cup games on home soil, the one exception being that huge upset when Bradford beat them 4-2 in 2015. Chelsea have been to more FA Cup quarter-finals than anyone other side has in the 21st century (12) so they have pedigree. The Blues have also put together an 11 unbeaten match of form against Manchester United now in all competitions (W6 D5) and in their last nine against the Red Devils, Chelsea have conceded just three times. Chelsea to win to nil at William Hill is a price of 15/8 and in the correct score market, a Chelsea 1-0 is the shortest priced option at 5/1. Pedro has scored in each round of this season’s FA Cup and is a price of 12/5 in the anytime goalscorer market. Diego Costa and Michy Batshuayi are 11/10 options in the market. Both teams to score at William Hill is a price of even money and Man Utd have suffered losses in their two FA Cup ties with Chelsea since the turn of the century. The Red Devils have poor form running at Stamford Bridge with just a W1 D6 L11 record on the board in their last 18 trips there. But they haven’t suffered an away loss in the competition since back in 2013, but that loss came against Chelsea. Manchester United have had a packed schedule lately because of their EFL Cup, FA Cup and Europa League campaigns, but they are unbeaten in their last ten games in all competitions now. This will be United’s 46th game of the season, and only the 34th for Chelsea. Manchester United have drawn their last two games 1-1 which is a price of 11/2 in the William Hill correct score market. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out suspended then for Manchester United because of his behaviour against Bournemouth in a recent league game. So his replacement gets a big chance and Marcus Rashford is a 5/2 anytime goalscorer option and he has four goals in his last six FA Cup appearances. Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial are 10/3 options. Manchester United have gone W3 D2 L1 in their last six games away from Old Trafford and in that sequence that have collected two clean sheets. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill is a 5/4 option for this game as United have scored in each of their last 13 games away from home across all competitions. Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has never lost an FA Cup quarter-final.

Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Odds

Chelsea 10/11, Draw 5/2, Man Utd 15/4

Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions

Chelsea have too much going for them at the moment to not back in this one. They have been in cracking form at the Bridge and with United’s busy schedule a burden, this should be a home win for the Blues. It may be worth having a flutter on both teams to get on the scoresheet but Chelsea are value to go just put the win on the board, as well as backing Pedro to keep his scoring streak going.

Blackburn v Manchester United Betting Preview - FA Cup 19th February 4.15pm This is a Lancashire derby in the fifth round of the FA Cup and it re-ignites the memories of those great Premier League battles we would see between the two sides. Blackburn are on a six match winless streak of form against Manchester United at Ewood Park and are going as underdogs for this one. Can Rovers raise their game to claim one of the biggest scalps left in the competition? It would offer some light away from their relegation issues in the Championship. Even though United have had a busy week with a Thursday night UEFA Europa League game, Mourinho’s men will be expected to be standing in the quarter finals.

Blackburn v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Tips

These two have been involved in some good scraps down the line so it’s good to see them squaring off against each other again. It doesn't look as if there will be any league meetings between the two in the near future anyway, as Rovers are stuck in the relegation zone in the Championship after a disappointing season on the board. They have a big struggle to get out of there and sustain their position in the second tier. Rovers have the second worst defensive record in the second tier this season and that immediately makes them highly vulnerable for this FA Cup clash against one of the best sides in the country. Rovers, who are heavy underdogs on home soil, have only claimed three clean sheets in their last 11 home games in all competitions, so it is likely that are going to concede in this one. Both teams to score at Bet365 for the FA Cup fixture is a quote of 19/20. Rovers aren’t exactly a prolific side and they may struggle to make an impact against an efficient United side. Rovers though, have scored in each of their last ten games in all competitions. Rovers set themselves up for this fifth round clash having beaten QPR and Blackpool in the previous rounds. Not the toughest of opposition for them but this one on Sunday is and they may well get badly exposed in the tie. This is the first meeting between the two Lancashire clubs since the 2011/12 Premier League season when they shared away wins from the two match ups. Blackburn though have won just one of their last 13 games against United in all competitions. The 1984/85 season was the last time that two clashed in the FA Cup and United won 2-0 at Ewood Park on that occasion. There is a 6/1 quote on a Man Utd 2-0 correct score at Bet365 for this one. Rovers though are actually head in a W4 D2 L2 record from their eight previous FA Cup matches played. Danny Graham is a 3/1 punt for Rovers in the anytime goalscorer market with Sam Gallagher at 5/2. Rovers have conceded at least two goals in seven of their last nine games against Manchester United and over 2.5 goals at Bet365 for Sunday's game is a quote of 4/6. The Red Devils had an extra game on Thursday night as they faced St Etienne in the Europa League. But that isn’t likely to have a great bearing on the outcome of the FA Cup tie at Ewood Park for them. They are going along in decent form out on the road to suggest that they are going to be strong enough to see off the Championships struggles. Manchester United have posted a good W6 D2 L1 record in their last nine away from Old Trafford in all competitions. They have taken three clean sheets in their last five out on the road as well. You have a price of 6/5 at Bet365 on Manchester United to win to nil which should have some nice appeal. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a 4/6 anytime goalscorer option with Marcus Rashford at 5/4. So far in the FA Cup this season United have posted 4-0 wins over Championship sides Reading and Wigan, moving through easily. The challenge that awaits them at Ewood Park in their short trip across the county, isn’t a tough one and Mourinho’s men will be expected to be in the quarter final draw.

Blackburn v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions

Would look for Manchester United to get through this one without too many scares really. They may be uncomfortable because of a gritty battle that Rovers will put up, but the Red Devils can edge their way through in this one. Rovers don't have a defence which can be trusted at all and that will ultimately be their downfall in this one, but have a shot at both teams to score as Manchester United bank the win.

Manchester United v Wigan FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 29th January 2017

Manchester United
Manchester United v Wigan Betting Preview - FA Cup 29th January 4.00pm It is a busy period for the Red Devils who had to play in midweek against Hull in the EFL Cup semi final. Mourinho’s men played extremely poorly in that second leg, lost the game but still made it through to Wembley for the final on aggregate. So now they switch to FA Cup mode where they will be fairly happy with their draw. The Latics have put together a three match winning streak, but they are still struggling near the foot of the Championship table and this is likely going to be too big of an ask for them, even if United rest players.

Manchester United v Wigan FA Cup Betting Tips

The matches have been coming thick and fast for Manchester United lately. They battled Hull on Thursday night in the EFL Cup semi final second leg, losing the game 2-1 at the KCom, but it was enough to get them to Wembley on aggregate. Still, that was an extra game that they had to deal with and so they will probably be changing things up and getting some fresh legs into the picture for this FA Cup game at Old Trafford against Wigan. Manchester United are the current FA Cup champions and they don’t look to be under any big threat in this one at all. They are going with Sergio Romero in goal for the game and Mourinho has a full strength squad to pick from. The Red Devils are one of the most reliable sides around when it comes to meeting lower opposition in the FA Cup and United have been eliminated from just one of their last 40 cup ties against a side from a lower division. They have some pretty hot form against Wigan as well. Of the 18 times that the two clubs have met in all competitions, United have won 17 of them (L1). The Red Devils have won nine of their last twelve games across all competitions now (D2 L1) and even though they were very poor against Hull, they are going to be strong enough on home soil with the options that they have available for this one. The Red Devils have only lost one game at Old Trafford in all competitions, that was against Manchester City in the Premier League, in just their second home games of the new term. Mourinho’s men have scored at least two goals in four of their last five on home soil as well and have taken three clean sheets in their last six there. You can take 4/5 at Betfair on Manchester United to win to nil and in the correct score market you have an option of a Manchester United 2-0 correct score at 11/2. Two of the last four between the two of them at Old Trafford have ended in a  2-0 win for United. Wayne Rooney has scored 10 goals in his previous 15 games against Wigan so is well worth a punt at 20/21 in the Betfair anytime goalscorer market. The Red Devils have scored at least two goals in 16 of their 17 wins against Wigan so are hugely dominant against the Latics. Under 2.5 goals on the game is an 8/5 price and Wigan have scored just the one goal in their last nine games against Manchester United and have netted just one in their eight previous games at Old Trafford. The Latics are hovering dangerously close to the drop zone in the Championship, only staying above it on goal difference at the moment. They have won their last three in all competitions, but they had lost six of their previous seven league games (D1). The Latics have just one clean sheet ever against United and aren’t likely to get any change out of United again in this one. The only positive for them is that they have progressed from five of their last six games against top-flight sides in the FA Cup.

So the Latics have never won at Old Trafford and it is more likely than not that the winless sequence will continue. Even if United don’t go full force at this one it is hard to see them losing. Wigan aren’t likely to have enough to take on the Red Devils and it’s worth backing them not to get on the scoresheet. A Manchester United 2-0 correct score looks to be around the right mark for the game.
