Derby v Manchester United Preview And Betting Tips – FA Cup 5th Round

The stage is set at Pride Park for Wayne Rooney to do the unthinkable and knock his former club Manchester United out of the FA Cup when they clash in the 5<sup>th</sup> round on Thursday night. Tipsters Form Labs guide you to where the value might lie with their betting preview and tips for the game which we have all the odds for the midweek FA Cup action.






The Rooney Factor

The main talking point from this match is Wayne Rooney going up against his former club. The former Man Utd striker is their all-time top scorer with 253 goals from his 559 appearances across all competitions (0.45 goals per game), four more than Bobby Charlton could manage.

 Rooney also provided 146 assists and he’ll no doubt be given a huge amount of respect by the travelling fans this Thursday.

Recent Form

You get the feeling that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to need to rotate his side for this fixture as a Manchester derby fixture looms just three days later, and with only three points separating them and Chelsea up in fourth place, the race for Champions League football is on.

The Red Devils are in a good vein of form having won five of their last eight unbeaten outings since late January, but they were very fortunate to get a point a Goodison Park at the weekend with VAR saving them from conceding a stoppage-time goal.

The Rams have gone W4-D2-L2 from eight matches dating back to the last day of January, winning the last outing 3-1 against Sheffield Wednesday thanks to an early brace from Tom Lawrence.

In fact, they have a remarkably good record of 10 wins from their last 15 fixtures at Pride Park, only losing to Millwall 1-0, and they could well cause the Premier League favourites some trouble.

Derby will certainly be reminiscing of their League Cup victory on penalties the last time these two sides faced off, although both sides have changed their managers since and so it’s hard to look into that form too much.





Both Teams To Score

The Rams have gone W2-D5-L4 from 11 fixtures since 2016/17 against Premier League opposition in cup competitions, though their two wins came against West Brom and Palace, while against ‘Big Six’ opposition they lost three of their four winless outings in this time.

They did however manage to net four goals across those games, half of which came against the Red Devils themselves and combining that with the fact they’ve scored in all but two of their 19 outings here this term, they should at least get on the scoreboard.

Man Utd’s upturn in form has been thanks to the arrival of Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese midfielder already has three goals and two assists from his five starts and in their only trip he hasn’t started since joining the Manchester club, they drew at Club Brugge 1-1.

That day Solskjaer rotated his squad slightly, which we expect him to do again here and they look worth talking on at the prices considering.

Double Chance – Derby Or The Draw

The visitors are just W2-D4-L3 on the road since November when excluding fixtures with the fellow ‘Big Six’ sides, drawing three of their last four trips as their only victory in this time came against League One outfit Tranmere Rovers.

In fact, they conceded in six of their nine trips over this period and defeats to the likes of Astana, Bournemouth and Watford gives us confidence when taking them on.

Both Teams To Score (Yes) At 4/5

Double Chance – Derby Or Draw At 6/4
