Blackburn vs Man Utd Preview, Team News, Line-Ups, Betting Tips & Prediction

By on February 18, 2017

Manchester United will be looking to book their place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup when they take on Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Sunday afternoon.

United warmed up for the game having put one foot in the next phase of the Europa League thanks to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Saint-Etienne in the first leg of their last-32 tie on Thursday night.

The victory means United have lost just one of their last 23 games in all competitions as Jose Mourinho’s men prepare for a hectic few months as they bid to compete in the Europa League, Premier League, FA Cup and EFL Cup – where they face Southampton in the final later this month.

The holders booked their place in the fifth round with comfortable wins over Reading and Wigan at Old Trafford but they’ll face a much stiffer test against Blackburn at Ewood tomorrow as Rovers have lost just one of their last five home games.

Team news

Mourinho is expected to freshen things up tomorrow afternoon and Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick could get recalls after missing the win over Saint-Etienne with minor muscle issues.

David De Gea could return in goal after being rested last time out while Phil Jones could be back in contention if he recovers from a minor foot injury.

Luke Shaw is also pushing for another chance to impress at left-back while we could see the likes of Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian and Jesse Lingard come back in to the side.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains a doubt due to illness but Ander Herrera should keep his place as he’s suspended for the second leg against Saint-Etienne on Thursday while Marcus Rashford should start after making an excellent impact off the bench in midweek.

As for Blackburn, they’ll be without the suspended Hope Akpan and Elliott Bennett while Lucas Joao is cup-tied and Tommy Hoban and Sam Gallagher all miss out through injury.

Likely Line-Ups

Predicted Score

Blackburn 1-3 Man Utd: United are in great form right now and I can’t see past anything other than an away win. Mourinho has made it clear he’s taking this competition seriously and I think they’ll ease in to the quarter finals with a 3-1 win.
