Manchester United vs Derby County Prediction 5 January 2018

Tournament: English FA Cup
Location: Old Trafford Stadium
Match date: 05.01.2018 at 20:00

On January 5 2018 at 20:00 in the upcoming regular game of the English FA Cup Round of 64 at the Old Trafford Stadium the local Manchester United are playing against Derby County.

Everybody thought that the squad of Manchester United is already great to become the champions of the league and still a series of mistakes they have already made and the injuries they suffered from leave the Red Devils on the second place in the table with really poor chances of winning the league. The team from the first place has never been so high above their closest rivals after 20 matches played in the league. As for the English cups, Manchester United have already left one of them as they lost to Bristol City 2:1. As for the FA Cup, Manchester United are just playing their first game against Derby on their way to the final.

As for Derby, they look just wonderful in the current season of the English Championship. They have already spent a few seasons there and this time they managed to make it to the top of the table and still didn’t manage to avoid the mistakes. In their 26 matches already played in the current campaign of the Championship Derby gained 49 points which let them take the second position in the table with 41:23 goal difference. The upcoming game will be the first one for them in the current season of the FA Cup.

Of course, Manchester United have an advantage in the history of head-to-heads of the teams. Last time they met was almost a year ago in that same tournament one stage above the current one. In that game Manchester United won 1:3. We think that this time the Red Devils will win once again and they will probably do it with a convincing score.
