Competition: Capital One Cup
Market: Man Utd to win against Ipswich Town
Odds: 3/10 @ William Hill
Manchester United host Ipswich Town in the Capital One Cup third round on Wednesday evening, with the Red Devils big favourites to dispatch of their Championship opposition at Old Trafford. Knocked out in the second round last season, United could book their place in the fourth round this campaign with a win.
Manchester United have been in fine form this season, with Louis van Gaal’s men currently sitting pretty in second place in the Premier League table. The Red Devils have won four of their six games played in the division, and are coming off the back of consecutive wins over Liverpool and Southampton.
United have been far from perfect this season, but they look much more convincing than the previous campaign. Van Gaal is expected to rest names for the clash, but should still put out a side more than capable of a win.
United’s form on home soil has been impressive too, with the favourites picking up seven points from a possible nine at Old Trafford, so Ipswich Town have a massive task to come away with a positive result. The visitors have endured a slump in form at the worst possible time. Despite beating Stevenage and Doncaster Rovers in the first two Capital One Cup rounds to make it this far, Town have dropped points in three of their last four in the league and could come unstuck against Manchester United.
