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

There are no draws in the last 18 matches between these two sides. Manchester United has an excellent record by winning 17 of them, while losing just once.

The record is even better at the Old Trafford as the Red Devils can boast of a 9 match winning run against Wigan. And Wigan has managed to score just once in those trips.

Moreover, Wigan has scored just 5 goals in total in the 18 matches across all venues against Manchester United since 2005.

Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic: Prediction

Having failed to win the previous three matches in all competitions, we are expected to see an angry response from Manchester United when they take on Wigan for the FA Cup fourth round fixture on Sunday. There is little doubt that they are poised to win this fixture by a big margin and therefore our recommended pick for this fixture is a HT/FT for United at the odds of 1.60.

Meanwhile, brave punters can opt for Manchester United to win the first half with a -1.5 Asian Handicap, which is offered at excellent odds of 3.00.
