Manchester United Team News & Preview
Manchester United host Wigan in the FA Cup this weekend and the Red Devils will be hoping to progress in another cup competition.
Jose Mourinho’s men are already in the final of the EFL cup after beating Hull City over two legs. Despite losing the second leg, United have shown impressive form in the last few months and are major favourites heading into this game.
Manchester United have lost just one of their last 18 matches in all competitions and they have an outstanding record against Wigan as well. The Old Trafford outfit have won 17 of their 18 previous matches against Wigan and have only ever conceded in five of those matches.
Eric Bailly is the only absentee for the home side this weekend.
Predicted Manchester United Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Darmian, Jones, Blind, Shaw; Herrera, Fellaini; Martial, Mata, Lingard; Rashford
Wigan Team News & Preview
Wigan are heading into this game on the back of three consecutive wins and the Championship side will fancy their chances of an upset here.
Although they have been quite poor all season, Wigan have made themselves hard to beat on their travels. The Championship outfit have lost just two of their last nine away matches. Having said that, Wigan have a dreadful record against Manchester United and will need a major slice of luck to change that this weekend.
Burke, Bogdan, Garbutt, Knoyle, Reece James, Nick Powell and Andy Kellett will all miss the trip to Old Trafford.
Predicted Wigan Starting Lineup (4-1-4-1): Haugaard; Connolly, Buxton, Burn, Warnock; MacDonald; Power, Morsy, Perkins, Jacobs; Grigg
