Man United continued their recent decent run of form with a 1-0 home success over West Ham in their previous game on January 22nd. The Red Devils are looking for their first FA Cup victory since the 2015-16 season. Ralf Ragnick has won the domestic cup in both Germany and in Austria.
At Old Trafford, United have won their last two in all competitions and three of their last four losing just one of their last seven. Three of their last four home victories have come by the same 1-0 scoreline. Scott McTominay has grabbed two goals from his last four appearances in front of his own fans.
Middlesbrough were last in action on the 29th January when they defeated Coventry 1-0 to move seventh in the Championship. The North-Eastern outfit come into the game in great form with eight victories and just one defeat from their last ten. In the previous round they defeated Mansfield 3-2.
Away from the Riverside, Boro have lost just one of their last five but that came on their last road trip going down 1-0 at Blackburn. Duncan Watmore enjoys a road trip with three goals from his last five on the road. In just one of their last seven away games have they kept a clean sheet.
Man United vs Middlesbrough: Match Stats
Man United should play a strong team in this game having not played since January 22nd and with no game in midweek. They should win but don’t blow away teams (three of their last four home victories have come by one goal) so backing a trio of correct scores 1-0,2-0 and 2-1 looks a great way to cover the result against a well drilled Middlesbrough side.
United should play their strongest team so the enhanced value offer from Skybet on both Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes to score at anytime at 4/1 offers great appeal. Bruno has two goals in his last three appearances while Ronaldo has five in his last ten in all appearances.
