Wigan take on the English champions at the JJB in this 3pm Saturday kickoff. Both teams lost their previous league games in ‘shock’ defeats and will be eager to get back on the winning track today. You can watch the game live on your PC by joining our dedicated live football members’ area.
Wigan lost to Wolves at home but should be fancying their chances against Man Utd who are either in another slow start or in decline (depending on your affiliation with the club). Wigan’s record against United isn’t that great in the league though (apparently they’ve lost all their games, most of them heavily, against United in the Premier League) and regardless of how much hype Roberto Martinez gets Wigan will be in for a tough battle.
Manchester United will be happy at this stage to be playing a team they’ve thumped several times in the last few years. Their strikers need confidence, the midfield isn’t clicking and the defense is shorn with injuries. Another goal bonanza at the expense of the Latics is exactly what they need going into the home game against high-flying Arsenal.
Prediction: Wigan 1-2 Man Utd
