Man Utd are of course the favourites to win this one with stature, ability, money and form all on their side against Yeovil. The bookmakers make The Red Devils a best price of 1/6 to win this one, a price that will not appeal as it is far, far too short. Remember, this is a team that has already faced the embarassment of being knocked out of a cup competition to a South West side this season!
However, the tide seems to be turning since that iffy period for Jose Mourinho's men, they have signed Alexis Sanchez and come into this FA Cup fixture on the back of a four match winning streak and are unbeaten in seven since their surprise defeat at Ashton Gate.
Yeovil arrive into this fixture after a 2-1 defeat to Chesterfield, where key player Otis Khan was sent off and he will unfortunately miss this fixture due to suspension. The Glovers are not far off the relegation zone in League Two and have picked up just six wins in their last 18!
For those reasons, not many will fancy an upset, but if you are in the mood for some sporting romance, you can back Yeovil to win with best FA Cup odds of 20/1 using our odds comparison service.
My recommended Yeovil v Man Utd tip is to back ‘Man Utd to win to nil’ at a best price of 5/6 using our Easyodds odds comparison grid.
Jose Mourinho has successfully ‘parked the bus’ against many sides throughout his managerial career and I don't think that will be a tactic used at Huish Park, but I do feel another clean sheet is possible for The Red Devils.
David De Gea has kept five clean sheets in a row in the Man Utd goal and whilst it is likely that Romero will come in for this game, I don't think too many changes will be made defensively as that was part of the reason they lost to Bristol City in the Carabao Cup.
Manchester United have kept 24 clean sheets in the Premier League in 2017, three more than any other side. Jose Mourinho’s team have recorded a shutout in each of their last five games, and getting another here against Yeovil, especially with Otis Khan missing (who has scored 10 goals and made eight assists this season for The Glovers) shouldn't prove too difficult.
I am getting better odds than an outright Utd win by backing Man Utd to win to nil with best Premier League odds of 21/20.
I’m not necessarily sure that punters realise the importance of our odds comparison service…
For example if you fancy Alexis Sanchez to score on his debut (who has netted 9 goals in all competitions this season for Arsenal) then he is a best price of 10/11. There’s a hefty difference in his price when you consider his worst price is just 4/7. Why wouldn’t you use our site to peruse the anytime goalscorer market and ensure you get the best possible odds?
