Manchester United’s last two games was a bit different from the rest of the season given that they had a combined 31 shots on goal for the 180 minutes, this implies that Van Gaal has given his players more freedom to attack.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United have won five of their last six games and despite the fact that they lost their last game at home, they went on a five-games winning streak before that.

Manchester United vs Sheffield United : Prediction

FA Cup might Louis Van Gaal’s only shot to a silverware, and he’ll do his utmost best to avoid a second trophy-less season during his reign and a third since Sir Alex Ferguson left.

My prediction is Manchester United 3-1 Sheffield, they should have enough fire power to brush aside Saturday’s visitors even though they might not have been playing classic game recently.
