We’re back with our quarter final FA Cup prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net, serving up the second SUnday fixture of the round. As per usually, our footballing experts are on hand to bring you the very best FA Cup tips, predictions and more for our selected match.
For our FA Cup predictions today, we’re looking at the crunch tie in the Midlands, as Leicester City host Manchester United at the King Power Stadium. Our FA Cup tips, betting info and predictions follow on below, alongside some in-depth analysis of recent form and performances.
A growing injury list, a Europa League exit and a home loss to Arsenal had many thinking that a Leicester fall away was on the card once again. However, a repeat of last season now looks unlikely, as Leicester have won their last two, including a 5-0 thrashing of Sheffield United. Kelechi Iheanacho grabbed his first Leicester hat-trick last weekend so should be confident going into this one. What of our FA Cup predictions for the Foxes? Their squad is still depleted and United are away day specialists this season, so it will be tough.
Manchester United continued to prove their away day pedigree in the midweek with a 1-0 win at the San Siro in the Europa League, which bodes well for their FA Cup predictions, given this is an away tie. In the premier League, they have gone 22 away games unbeaten. To give Solskjaer further confidence, Pogba returned to the fold on Thursday, coming off the bench to grab the only goal of the game three minutes later. Luke Shaw has been on fire at the back and Scott McTomminy has recently been adding goals to his strong holding midfielder performances.
The last meeting between these sides was at the King Power in December, in what was an entertaining 2-2 draw between two sides then within reach of the Premier League’s summit. The previous meeting back in July was also at the King Power, with United running out 2-0 winners. United have won four of their last five against Leicester City, which means that Brendan Rogers has yet to record a managerial victory over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. In fact, you have to go all the way back to 2014 to find a Leicester win over United – a thrilling 5-3 comeback at the King Power.
Below, we’ve provided you with the results of the last five games between Leicster and Man United as well as three statistical highlights. We’ve used all of this information and more in order to bring you this edition of our FA Cup prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net
Having analysed the above information and recent form,. Our FA Cup predictions today suggest another away win for Manchester United on Sunday.
Leicester will be feeling confident going into this one following last weekend’s 5-0 win, however we shouldn’t forget that it was against Sheffield United, who are something of a crisis club at the minute. United are a far more solid unite, and have a couple of big stats on their side here. First of all, there’s the undefeated away form this season, and secondly there’s the fact Leicester haven’t won against them since 2014, back when Louis Van Gaal was in charge. Squad depth is on United’s side, as Leicester still have a number of key injuries, including James Maddison, Ricardo Pereira and Harvey Barnes. United have been drawing at half time in each of their last three games, with Fernandes’ penalty against City being the only first half goal they’ve scored in the last seven games. Our tip is therefor draw/away at odds of 6 with Bet365.
