Tranmere Rovers vs Man United Betting Tips & Predictions

17:00 Sun 26 Jan
FA Cup
Tip: Greenwood 1G
Units: 1/5

Tranmere Rovers might be stationed in the League One relegation zone although they’re enjoying an excellent run in the FA Cup that has already seen them overcome Wycombe Wanderers and Watford.

Next up for the Wirral side is Manchester United, with the two teams meeting on a muddy pitch at Prenton Park this coming Sunday. The Red Devils are among the favourites to win this season’s competition and they’re heavily odds-on to claim a normal time victory here.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently favourite in the Premier League Sack Race market and he will want a convincing performance from the players selected for this clash, especially as the team are likely to be knocked out of the EFL Cup by Manchester City on Wednesday.

We might see a strong team fielded by the Norwegian although we expect Mason Greenwood to be given a rare start considering the striker has looked deadly when given an adequate amount of game time against inferior opposition.

bet365 actually offer each-way betting on First Goalscorer markets and that means you can back Greenwood each-way and get a profit if the young forward scores at any point in the game.

Tranmere will have to quickly recover from their exertions against the Hornets which lasted two hours and several members of the Rovers squad fit into the ageing category including Neil Danns, David Perkins and Peter Clarke.

Micky Mellon’s side could cause a few problems against weakened opposition and there will be a focus on potentially earning a replay considering that could land around £500,000 in extra funds to go with the revenue generated from this draw.

We think it could be a goal-filled encounter, although providing that Greenwood is given the nod to start the game, we can’t resist the price about the forward scoring.
