Shrewsbury Town v Manchester United Preview, FA Cup 5th Round, Monday 22nd February 2016

Shrewsbury Town made it through to this lucrative 5th round tie against Manchester United having caused a bit of a shock 3-2 victory at home against Sheffield Wednesday in the previous round and that win has obviously got both the players and fans quite excited about their chances in this game, especially with their opponents having put in some very poor performances of late.

Shrewsbury Town have never won the FA Cup, but have reached the quarter finals on two seperate occasions back in 1979 and 1982 and their chairman has said that this game on Monday night is the most important match in the clubs history.

Manchester United continue to bumble their way through the season that has once again produced little of taking much notice of and it does seem that the players are becoming increasingly perturbed with the tactics that he employs week after week.

United came through their 4th round match against Derby County with a comfortable 3-1 victory, but head into this game having suffered back to back defeats when losing 2-1 to struggling Sunderland in the league and then 2-1 away in the Europa League against minnows Midtjylland.

Van Gaal will no doubt make a number of changes to his team for this game, but will it be enough to avoid what is increasingly looking like a major banana skin ?

Manchester United have won the FA Cup an impressive 11 times, but you have to go back to the 2002/03 season to find the last time they lifted the magical trophy.

Shrewsbury Town Team News:

The hosts have almost a full squad available but will be without the services of on-loan midfielder James Wallace who is currently receiving treatment for a knee injury. Jamie Collins and Sullay Kaikai are the clubs current top goalscorers this season with 5 a piece and will lead the attack up front.

Manchester United Team News:

The visitors have a number of casualties to their squad for this match and Sam Johnstone, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Guillermo Varela, Ashley Young, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Marouane Fellaini, Adnan Januzaj and Wayne Rooney are all struggling with respective injury problems and look unlikely to feature in this one.

David De Gea suffered an injury during the pre-match warmup against Midtjylland midweek and is also unlikely to feature, so Sergio Romero will probably take his place between the sticks.

Shrewsbury Town v Manchester United Head to Head Statistics:

Monday night’s match from the Greenhous Meadow Stadium will become the very first meeting between the two clubs, so unfortunately we have no historical data to provide you with.

Manchester United: W W D L L

Nothing between the two sides on the recent form statistics as both have managed two wins, one draw and two defeats in their previous five matches played, however with Manchester United having by far the superior squad and desperate to return back to winning ways, this should be business as usual for the Premiership side.

Shrewsbury Town have already dumped out Championship side Sheffield Wednesday in the previous round and with home advantage again in this 5th round tie, everyone involved at the club will believe that they can win this game and the hosts are current best odds available of 17/2 with with BetVictor – £50 Free Bets for New Customers Registering an Account.

The Draw is probably the best result that Shrewsbury can obtain here in my honest opinion and this can be backed at a current best price of 17/4 with Bet365 – £200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers when Registering a New Account.

Manchester United are the clear favourites to win this game which will not come as any surprise to anyone, but with their recent form hardly inspiring their current best price of 2/5 with BetFred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets when Registering a New Account, does look a bit on the short side.

Shrewsbury Town v Manchester United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Shrewsbury Town’s Greenhous Meadow Stadium will be packed to the rafters come Monday night and it’s certainly going to be a tough atmosphere for the United players and with the pitch also no doubt a question for concern, everything does seem to be stacked against Louis Van Gaal’s side.

However, let us not forget that Shrewsbury Town are playing in League One and are currently struggling for survival down in 19th position having only managed to win just 9 games this season and an early goal by United would no doubt be enough to remove any hope the hosts had of causing an upset.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be for Manchester United striker Martial to Score at Anytime as the odds available for this at Bet365 do look very good value for a player who has been scoring goals recently.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be Manchester United attacker Memphis Depay to score the First Goal of the game as this game provides him with a huge opportunity to add some much needed goals to his season’s tally which so far has been very disappointing indeed.
