Wigan vs Man Utd team news

Wigan

Wigan made the trip to York City in the 2nd Round of the FA Cup, where a solitary goal proved enough to win this cup tie. The Wigan forwards struggled against the National League defence overall with the first half ending goalless but just after the hour mark, Stephen Humphreys broke the deadlock and setup a date with Premier League icons Manchester United in the next round.

Predicted Lineup: Tickle (GK), Sessegnon, Morrison, Hughes, Jones, Clare, Shaw, Adeeko, Magennis, Lang & Godo

Man Utd

Man Utd can't seem to put a run of results together at the moment, following up their excellent 3-2 comeback win over Aston Villa with a 2-1 defeat at struggling Nottingham Forest. The FA Cup provides Man Utd with their last realistic chance of silverware this season so there is plenty of pressure on their Dutch manager to win on Monday night.

Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Mason Mount, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Carlos Casemiro all look set to miss this cup tie through injury, while Sofyan Amrabat is away at the Africa Cup of Nations. Some significant rotation is expected, leading to some unusual goalscoring candidates in the famous red shirt.

Predicted Lineup: Onana (GK), Evans, Varane, Reguilón, Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Fernandes, Mainoo, Rashford, Diallo & Garnacho

Player to Watch: Scott McTominay

He might not be everyone's cup of tea at Old Trafford but Scott McTominay is Man Utd's top goalscorer in domestic competition this season with five goals, and could prove to be their match-winner on Monday night.

Erik ten Hag is likely to change his starting eleven around for the Wigan game, giving some of those players on the peripheries a chance to impress whilst simultaneously handing out well-deserved rests to other key players.

McTominay hasn't always been a starter this season, despite scoring some key goals, but we're backing the Scottish international to play against Wigan on Monday and expect the midfielder to impress.
