Recommended bet: Manchester United to ‘Win to Nil’ @ 5/6 (1.83) with Paddy Power

The FA Cup holders, Manchester United, continue the defence of their trophy with a visit from the 2013 FA Cup winners, Wigan Athletic.

Manchester United are currently unbeaten in 17 matches in all competitions (ahead of Thursday’s EFL Cup semi-final 2nd leg away to Hull City) and with Jose Mourinho likely to select a strong starting XI against the Championship strugglers, it would be a major shock were that run to end here.

United eased to a 4-0 win over Reading in the 3rd round and although Mourinho rotated to a degree, with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan consigned to the bench and David de Gea not featuring at all, it was still a strong and experienced team that took to the field against the Royals.  Much the same can be expected against Wigan.

Wigan are currently in their best form of the current campaign, having followed up a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup 3rd round with back-to-back league wins over Burton Albion and Brentford.  As a result, they’ve now managed to haul themselves out of the relegation zone on goal difference.

Joyce has inside track on Old Trafford

The Latics will at least have the inside track on their opponents, courtesy of manager Warren Joyce.  Having had a couple of years at United’s feeder club, Royal Antwerp, Joyce then spent in excess of eight years coaching the Red Devils reserves prior to taking the Wigan job.

United have a relatively clean bill of health, so any team changes will be down to Mourinho.  For their part, Wigan will be without former Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell who came off in the win over Forest with another hamstring problem.

Few would suggest anything other than a home win in this tie, but the odds are prohibitive.  Value can be found in backing Mourinho’s men to win without conceding at 5/6 with Paddy Power though.   In their ongoing 17 match unbeaten run, United have conceded just 10 goals.  That doesn’t augur too well for a Wigan team who, in 27 Championship matches this season, have scored on just 24 occasions.
