The third and final FA Cup match on Saturday sees Manchester United travel to Wolverhampton off the back of their first domestic defeat since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge at Old Trafford in December.
Both sides will be looking at this competition as a prime opportunity to win some silverware. But with Manchester City potentially in the semi-finals, will this be a false dawn?
Sitting pretty in seventh place, newly promoted Wolves have European football within reaching distance, but recently form has been hot-and-cold.
Away draws against the likes of Chelsea are cancelled out by poor defeats against struggling Huddersfield. Following a strong January, results over the past six weeks have been a little more stagnant.
Wolves have drawn three times in their last five Premier League matches only collecting three points once against Cardiff City.
Goals have been a bit of a struggle in recent weeks with just six goals scored in their last six matches – this includes their 5th round tie against Bristol City that ended 1-0.
Manchester United will have to dust themselves off after a roller-coaster of a week that saw them claim a heroic Champions League victory over PSG, only to come crashing back down to earth with a 2-0 defeat away at Arsenal.
Despite this, United are still averaging over 2.27 goals per game since Solskjaer took charge and are in a much better position than when he arrived in December.
Top four is still on the cards, but the manager has stated many times he wants to win trophies this season. The FA Cup is open and one of many teams have a real chance of lifting the cup in May.
Manchester United can be backed at a strong 11/8 price to win, while the hosts are 12/5 to progress to the next round within 90 minutes.

Wolves enter this tie with a fully fit squad and no fresh disciplinary concerns. Ryan Bennett will return to the fold despite currently serving a two-match ban in the Premier League.
Jesse Lingard and Ander Herrera could be in contention to feature for Manchester United after returning to training. A late fitness test necessary on Romelu Lukaku is expected after picking up a foot injury – Phil Joes returns to the squad and is fit after an illness.
Under 2.5 goals @ 4/5 – BET NOW
Just 33% of Wolves’ matches have feature over 2.5 goals in a match – in fact the last time there was over 2.5 goals in a Wolves game was the 3-2 fourth round FA Cup victory against League One Shrewsbury.
Manchester United have been scoring freely since December, but it’s hard to see them breaking down such a strong defence unit with the same kind of vigour they do with other sides in the Premier League.
Marcus Rashford to score anytime @ 21/10 – BET NOW
With Romelu Lukaku facing late fitness tests, it’s most likely Marcus Rashford will be the target man for Manchester United. The England International has come on leaps and bounds since the Jose Mourinho left the club the obvious choice to score anytime.
Rashford’s last two goals have come in cup competitions – one goal in the Champions League against PSG and another against Arsenal in the last round of the FA Cup.
Manchester United to win 1-0 @ 7/1 – BET NOW
The last time these two sides met, it proved to be a cagey game with the points shared at full-time.
Obviously, Manchester United are a completely different beast to the team that played in October, but Wolves are still able to match it with the best teams in the country. You can back Manchester United to win 1-0 on Saturday evening for a best-price of 7/1, which looks like a great selection in the pre-match markets.
