Manchester United vs Middlesbrough – FA Cup 4th round 2022
The Rangnick side return to action on this Friday with an exclusive FA Cup match on hesgoal fourth round tie against Middlesbrough.
Also this match is probably fairly low on interim United boss Ralf Rangnick’s list of priorities for hes goal man Utd but it is their only realistic chance of domestic silverware this season.
Know that United go into the game after a two-week break I’m expecting them to name close to their best available XI for the visit of Boro
And definitely the club could do with a victory after what has been a difficult week.
Man U of course may not be in the best of form but they have been picking up results for ManuU v boro football regardless and have just one defeat in their last 13 games across all competitions
Rangnick’s men have five wins in their last seven at home, with one defeat, and beat Premier League rivals Aston Villa at home in the previous round so they should be expected to overcome Boro.
The visitors arrive in good form themselves and are pushing for promotion from the second tier but they did avoid an upset in the third round
That’s definitely after blowing a two-goal lead against Mansfield, only to grab a last-gasp winner via an own goal to set up this game at Old Trafford.t
Man United having clear chance
With no surprises, Man u are a short price to win this match so for a bit more value a home win to nil looks a strong option here.
Rashford side have managed back-to-back clean sheets at Old Trafford ahead of this tie and Boro have failed to score in two of their last four away games.
Ralf Rangnick’s side have also managed nine clean sheets in their last 11 home FA Cup ties and haven’t conceded at home against a team outside the Premier League in this competition since a defeat to then third-tier Leeds United in the 2009/10 season
