Manchester United, it is fair to say, haven’t had the easiest of draws when it comes to the FA Cup.
After overcoming the challenge presented by the Championship side Reading, at Old Trafford, Manchester United have had to make tough trips to Arsenal and Chelsea, in rounds 3 and 4 respectively, coming through both as the victors.
This evening, United face another Premier League side, Wolverhampton Wanderers, for a place in the semi-finals of the most famous domestic cup competition in the world.
Here at Vital Manchester United, we’re confident that United can get back to winning ways after losing to Arsenal, in the Premier League last time out.
It’s a view that is also shared by the TV pundit, the former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson, who in his regular BBC feature, BBC, has had the following to say when it comes to the outcome of the tie tonight:
“United lost their first league game under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week but, with the chances they had, they should have beaten Arsenal.
“Solskjaer’s side actually played really well, and if they can repeat that performance then it should put them in the semi-finals.”
Lawrenson goes for a 2-0 win for United, not too far away from the 2-1 I predict, let’s hope we’ve picked the correct winners.
