Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic
FA Cup – Fourth Round
Date: Sunday, 29 January 2017
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester.
The 17 match unbeaten run of Manchester United has come to a halt as Hull City earned a 2-1 win in the League Cup semi-final on the midweek. The Red Devils were off-colour in the recent weeks seeing draws in two matches before failing against a side like Hull, who struggled to avoid defeats throughout the season.
It is time for Mourinho to regroup his team and get back to winning ways as his team is competition for titles in all competitions they have entered this season. The weekend FA Cup fixture will be a perfect opportunity to find some form, as Wigan are a side that flopped consistently at the Old Trafford.
Wigan are a struggling side in the Championship, but managed to find some form at the start of the New Year. They have won in their last three matches in all competitions. And two in a row in Championship that helped them to move above the relegation zone.
Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic: Head-to-head stats
