FA Cup Betting Odds: Preston vs Manchester UnitedPublished February 16, 2015 by Sol FH
Manchester United travel to Deepdale to face Preston North End at 19:45 (UK).
The FA Cup continues tonight and moving into the fifth round will see Preston North End hosting Louis van Gaal's Manchester United. If the Lilywhites can hold on, it will be an incredible upset, but one that should have punters quite happy about.
With Chelsea and Manchester City making an early exit from the FA Cup, Manchester City are definitely ready to make a charge for the title but need to get their road games back on track.
Manchester United has not been as strong on the road as they would probably like. Van Gaal's Red Devils need to turn things around quickly, but Preston could be a huge obstacle tonight. Even though the home team are in fourth in League One and United are in third place in the Premier League, Manchester needs to be wary of their opponents and take control of the match from first touch.
United have only lost once in the last eighteen games, while Preston have won three since not having won from the 3rd of January until the 3rd of February. The home team has some momentum behind them now and Manchester has been heavily criticized for their indifferent play as of late.
Team Scope: Preston and United
Preston will be going with their top gunners tonight, which includes Thorsten Stuckmann, Tom Clarke, John Welsh, Paul Huntington, Neil Kilkenny, Bailey Wright, Scott Wiseman, Paul Gallagher, Daniel Johnson, Joe Garner, and Kevin Davies.
United will be rolling with Wayne Rooney, David De Gea, Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Radamel Falcao, Paddy McNair, Chris Smalling, James Wilson, Angel Di Maria and Adnan Januzaj.
