The Premier League takes a break this weekend, and the FA Cup takes centre stage. One of the best games this weekend sees Manchester United travel to Huddersfield in an all-Premier League clash. The latest FA Cup odds have United as favourites to win the tie, but Huddersfield will be looking to cause a shock, and after winning 4-1 at home last weekend, they should be full of confidence.
Over the past few weeks, Manchester United have struggled to live with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, and all they can hope for now from the league is a top four finish. That isn’t guaranteed though, and they will have a fight on to maintain their position. They are still in Europe, which means the FA Cup is not the only trophy they can still win, however, winning the Champions League looks beyond them. After all that, if Manchester United want to win a trophy this season, the FA Cup is their only real option, and because of that I expect them to play a very strong team.
Huddersfield are struggling at the bottom of the Premier League this season, and despite these two being in the same league, a win for Huddersfield would be seen as a huge shock. The FA Cup betting shows that Huddersfield are huge outsiders to win this game, but within their squad they will believe they can get something against United.
