Manchester United

Last updated: Thu 16 January 2020 08:38
In Brief

Confidence better after 4:0 home win vs. Norwich. Rojo, McTominay and Pogba sidelined. Shaw, Young, Lingard and Rashford doubtful.

Looking Back

United under pressure after back-to-back negative cup displays prior hosting bottom-dwellers Norwich, but players responded well and dominant display on Saturday brought 4:0 win. Rashford netted brace, with Martial and Greenwood also scoring.

In first clash of this tie failed to register shot on target, first time this happened to United in domestic game in 5 years.

Looking Ahead

Coach Solskjaer saw his hot striker Rahsford limping off pitch on Saturday and he might be missing as result. Shaw and Lingard hope to be over sickness though. Rojo and several others remain out, while Young serious doubt.

Pogba and McTominay remain out, which could see youngsters Gomes and Chong getting some playing time.

Points of Interest

Unable to beat Wolves since their return to top flight 2 years ago – (D3 L2).

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Last updated: Thu 16 January 2020 08:38
In Brief

Winless since Boxing Day (D2 L2). Boly remains sidelined. Jota also ruled out.

Looking Back

Wolves held to frustrating 1:1 home draw by Newcastle on Saturday, with inability to score against teams that sit deep on them again exposed.

Results when able to play on counterattack much better ever since return to top flight and Wolves continue to be the side with most positive results against the ‘Big Six’. Able to beat all Big Six teams in last 12 months, including Cup win vs. Liverpool and 2 league wins vs. Man City this season.

Looking Ahead

Coach Santo likely to use best possible squad as ambitious manager wants to go deep in this competition (last season Wolves reached FA Cup semi-finals).

Cutrone failed to settle and he was loaned out back to Italy. Jota still battles injury, while Boly is long-term absentee.
