Derby County v Manchester United Betting Tips
Wayne Rooney will face off against former side Manchester United in what’s one of the most hotly anticipated ties of the FA Cup Fifth Round.
United are in form and big favorites, with United to win and four or more goals our pick of the bunch at 9/4 with William Hill.
Key Battle: Wayne Rooney v Bruno Fernandes
Derby got a brilliant result away to Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, with Wayne Rooney adopting a holding midfield role.
That will put him up against Bruno Fernandes who has transformed United since arriving at the club.
He’ll be key in United’s success, unlocking opportunities for the likes of Anthony Martial and new recruit Odion Ighalo.
The latter to score and United win is 6/5 and well worth a punt, while him to score, United to win and BTTS looks a very worthwhile punt at 7/2.
Our Tip: United to have the quality to see off the Rams
Silverware would do Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the world of good and he’s keen to claim it. United will field a strong side and we’d fancy them to have few problems against a Derby side who have been inconsistent throughout the season.
We’d back United and BTTS at 15/8, although we can certainly see Ighalo bagging in this one.
