Huddersfield v Manchester United FA Cup Prediction & Betting Tips – 17th February 201813th February 2018 / lee
Huddersfield v Manchester United FA Cup, 17th February 5.30pm
Manchester United recently landed a comfortable home win over the Terriers in a Premier League clash at Old Trafford. However, they head out to the John Smith’s in the FA Cup on the weekend, the scene of their first Premier League away defeat this season. Still, with the names that they could have pulled out of the hat, this still looks a great draw for Jose Mourinho’s men who will be expecting their name to be in the quarter-final draw.

Man Utd 4/11, Draw 15/4, Huddersfield 17/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 9th, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.)
Huddersfield v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Tips
Manchester United produced a poor performance out at Newcastle on Sunday to take a 1-0 loss to the Magpies. That threw the top four race in the top flight wide open. The Red Devils head out on the road in the FA Cup on the weekend to the John Smiths. They have already lost their this season in a shock league upset. The Red Devils are W6 L2 in their last eight games in all competitions and in the FA Cup so far they have seen off Derby and Yeovil without having conceded a goal. Manchester United to win to nil at Unibet is trading at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:36 p.m.). Each of United’s last three wins against Huddersfield have been with a clean sheet. The Red Devils had that disappointing league crash out at Newcastle on the weekend and that is back to back away defeats they have suffered now. United are actually only W3 D1 L3 in their last seven games away from Old Trafford. Still, in the Unibet correct score market, the shortest priced option is a Manchester United 2-0 at 6/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:42 p.m.).
So there has been one win each between the two of these this season. Their game at the John Smith’s back in October was the first meeting between the two clubs since the 1971/72 season so it had been a while. In the FA Cup, there have only been the three previous meetings with the Red Devils 2-1 up from those. The most recent meeting in the FA Cup was back in 1963 with United winning 5-0 at home.
The Terriers have taken just the one win in their last six games in all competitions now (over 90 minutes) and that was a thumping 4-1 victory in the Premier League over Bournemouth on Sunday. After a 1-1 home draw against Championship strugglers Birmingham in the last round of the FA Cup, the Terriers need extra time to get past the Blues at the second time of asking at St Andrew’s. The Terriers had beaten Bolton in the third round. So things get really tough for them now and they are not in great winning form at home. Their win over Bournemouth on the weekend snapped a six-match winless home streak of form (D3 L3) and during that spell, they have conceded at least three goals in each of those three defeats. To their credit, although they are not a high-scoring side they have netted in all but two of their last eleven home fixtures. Both teams to score at Unibet is at even money odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:42 p.m.). They will be going as heavy underdogs in this one and will need to call on that great fighting spirit that they have.
Who will win – Huddersfield v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions
Manchester United are not likely going to let this fixture slip away from them. They did a good job at Old Trafford recently against the Terriers and can follow that up with a success in this one out on the road. Back Manchester United to win to nil as Huddersfield probably won’t have enough to hurt them.
