Manchester United v Wigan Past Meetings

The sides have played each other 18 times competitively in their history with all of those coming within the past 12 years, and it makes extremely grim reading for Wigan fans.

They have lost 17 of the 18 fixtures and have managed only 5 goals in that time, while United have racked up 56 – over a rate of 3 per game – in the fixture.

Wigan’s only victory was decisive – a 1-0 home win in the 2012 title run in, which Sir Alex Ferguson’s side then missed out on due to goal difference.


Manchester United v Wigan Stats

United are on the longest unbeaten run of any side in Europe’s top seven leagues across all competitions – a 17-match unbeaten run which stretches back to October’s defeat at Stamford Bridge. That run also included a run of nine consecutive victories as Jose Mourinho gets his side closer to where they want, and need, to be.

Wigan’s season is not going so well – out of the Championship relegation zone on goal difference only but they have won their last three games in succession: their FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest was followed by league triumphs over Burton and Brentford.


Manchester United v Wigan Team News

United have a clean bill of health for this fixture as Marcos Rojo should recover from illness on time, although expect them to rotate at least four or five regular starters. Marouane Fellaini, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial should all start.

Wigan have no current injuries or suspensions.


Reason for Manchester United v Wigan Betting Tips

United are on an ominous run of form – it’s not that their play has remarkably improved since their stumbles earlier in the season but their spirit, confidence, momentum and belief has. They are incredibly tough to beat and that is shown in their record run without a defeat and with a favourable run of fixtures to come, you can’t rule them out of anything just yet.

There are two main reasons why Mourinho’s men should be backed to win to nil; firstly, they have conceded only 5 goals in their last 11 fixtures (two of which were penalties and one an own goal) and secondly, Wigan Athletic (24) have netted the fewest goals in the Championship.

United will make alterations due to this being sandwiched in a busy week between a League Cup semi final and a league fixture – both against Hull – so bets on individual scorers may prove foolish, but there is genuine value in safety in backing the Red Devils to win to nil.
