FA Cup Predictions: Shrewsbury vs Man United

Shrewsbury have lost three of their last four matches at home – their only victory in that time was in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Sheffield Wednesday. They have beaten a team from a higher division in the previous two rounds (Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday), although they have lost 14 of their 23 FA Cup matches against top-flight opposition. All six of Shrewsbury’s goals scored in the FA Cup this season have come in the second-half of their games. The Shrews have kept five clean sheets in their last seven FA Cup games (W5, D1, L1).

Manchester United have only won five of their last 18 matches in all competitions (D6, L7). Two of those victories were in the FA Cup against Sheffield United and Derby County. United have won the last six times they’ve reached the fifth-round stage of this competition. They have scored 19 goals in their last eight games against third-tier opposition in the FA Cup – at an average of 2.4 goals per game.​
