Bet of the Day: Sanchez-inspired Man United to make easy work of Yeovil

Cian Carroll | 26 January 2018

Red Devils could bag a hatful

Yeovil Town host Manchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup tonight in front of the live TV cameras.

The League Two strugglers have the daunting prospect of facing a Jose Mourinho side who will have a buzz about them.

Alexis Sanchez was signed from Arsenal earlier in the week and looks like making his debut at Huish Park. That spells bad news for a team who are 21st in League Two with 50 goals conceded.

Mourinho is unlikely to rotate too heavily here with a number of senior stars – alongside Sanchez – starting.

Yeovil kept United to a 2-0 scoreline in their FA Cup tie back in 2015 at the same venue. But Louis van Gaal was in charge of the Red Devils team that evening.

United have a much more potent side this time around and will look to put this tie to bed early.

The Old Trafford outfit have only conceded once to League One or Two opposition from 2005 until now. 

The Coral Bet of the Day is Manchester United to win to Nil at 4/6.

Alexis to make his mark

Sanchez looks like he’ll be given his bow against the Glovers this evening and he’ll be eager to impress.

The Chilean scored on his FA Cup debut for Arsenal against Hull City in the third round of the 2015 edition.

The Gunners went onto win it that year with Sanchez scoring in the final against Aston Villa. That could be a good omen for United here if he does find the net.

The former Barcelona forward is 10/3 to be First Goalscorer and 10/11 to score Anytime.

United Firepower

As previously stated, Yeovil side are struggling to survive in League Two and have one of the leakiest defences in the division.

Can Mourinho’s side beat the handicap and put the Glovers to the sword? United to win on the -2 Handicap is 11/10.

With Romelu Lukaku (12/5 First Goalscorer), Marcus Rashford (11/4 First Goalscorer), and Sanchez up top – the Red Devils have the firepower to do damage.

Man United to win and Over 3.5 Goals is 5/4.
