Action is set to be intense as the Terriers lock horns with the Red Devils in West Yorkshire

Manchester United’s FA Cup campaign will resume on Saturday with a fifth-round tie against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium.

David Wagner’s men ended a five-match losing streak in the Premier League with a massive 4-1 home win over Bournemouth last time out.

The Terriers had earlier triumphed 2-1 over their visitors back in October and will have to overturn odds of (6.75) as quoted by NairaBet to cause another upset.

Having suffered a shocking loss at Newcastle last Sunday, Jose Mourinho’s side will be determined to put on a great display.

The FA Cup represents the only realistic chance for the Red Devils to win silverware this season and are tipped to win here at odds of (1.50).

A no winner, no vanquish result after the end of 90 minutes is priced by the same betting firm at odds of (4.40).

Less than three goals were scored in three of the last six meetings between both teams. However, the fresh acquisition of Alexis Sanchez can be convincing enough for punters to back over 2.5 goals at a tasty price of (1.80).

Both teams were in target in October’s game at the John Smith’s Stadium and it’s a mouth-watering (2.00) for that to surface at the same venue again.

Fortune would beckon on the punters who expect both teams to play a stalemate in the first half of this tie as a result of the defence solidity of the Red Devils.

This has paid out for them in five of their last eight duels in all competitions and NairaBet has chalked them up at (2.40) to see the first half result end in a draw.
