Manchester United beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 in the Premier League earlier this month, but the pair will lock horns again on Saturday in the fifth-round of the FA Cup, and David Wagner will be hoping his Terriers side can put up a much bigger fight against Jose Mourinho's team, as both teams attempt to book their place in the quarter-finals.

How Will It Go?

Unsurprisingly, United will line up as a warm favourites and are a best-priced 4/9 with Unibet Bookmakers for the win, but Huddersfield fans will have fond memories of their win over United at home earlier in the Premier League campaign, and wth Mourinho sure to shuffle his pack ahead of their Champions League last-16 tie next week with Sevilla, then some punters may lap up the 8/1 with Betfair Sportsbook for a home win.

Huddersfield head into the match full of confidence having beaten Bournemouth 4-1 in the Premier League last weekend, so they will fancy their chances against a United side that were shock 1-0 losers to Newcastle United, and it would be no shock if Town were able to earn a replay at Old Trafford, and the 18/5 with Betfair Sportsbook about a draw after 90 minutes is the way to go in this Huddersfield v Manchester United match.

Goals Expected At John Smith's Stadium

Mourinho's United cruised to a 4-0 win over Yeovil Town in the last round of the FA Cup, but they will face a much stiffer test against Huddersfield, and having scored four goals last weekend, the Terriers will fancy their chances of causing United's defence problems, and with the likes of Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian set for a return then United's rearguard could prove to be vulnerable.

So, with that in mind, it's worth getting stuck into the 6/5 on offer with Betfair Sportsbook for both teams to score in 90 minutes in what could be a pretty entertaining FA Cup tie in front of the BT Sports cameras on Saturday teatime.
Both Teams To Score Odds:

Rashford To Open Scoring For United

Marcus Rashford scored the first goal when United knocked out Yeovil with ease in the last round, and the England international is a great bet to net first on Saturday, and the 19/4 with Unibet for a Rashford opener is worth backing, while Huddersfield fans will be looking to Steve Mounie to break the deadlock after scoring at the weekend, and he is as big as 9/1 with some firms to score the first goal.
