Wigan v Manchester Utd Betting Preview, 8th January 2024

Wigan v Manchester Utd Betting Preview

Tonight’s FA Cup fixture sees Wigan Athletic host Manchester United at the DW Stadium. Wigan, currently in League One, enter this match following a 1-1 draw against Barnsley, placing them 17th in their league.

Wigan have had a challenging season, starting with a points deduction and battling relegation risks. Their previous FA Cup encounters with Manchester United haven’t been favorable, with their last meeting in this competition resulting in a 4-0 loss in 2017.

Manchester United, on the other hand, have a storied history in the FA Cup but are experiencing a difficult season. They recently lost to Nottingham Forest in the Premier League, placing them eighth in the table. This match is particularly crucial for United, as the FA Cup represents their most realistic chance for silverware this season.

Wigan will miss key players Tom Pearce and Jason Kerr due to injury, with doubts over Stephen Humphrys and Scott Smith’s participation. Manchester United will have Andre Onana available, but Sofyan Amrabat will be absent due to national team commitments.

The predicted lineups are:

Wigan Athletic: Tickle; Clare, Hughes, Morrison, Sessegnon; Shaw, Adeeko; McManaman, Lang, Godo; Magennis.
Manchester United: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Evans, Dalot; McTominay, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund.

Tip & Prediction

Manchester United is expected to field a strong team, with key players like Rashford and Fernandes likely to feature. The prediction for the match is a 3-1 victory for Manchester United, with expectations of over 3.5 goals for the game
