Blackburn Rovers hosts Manchester United at “Ewood Park” in a game from FA Cup.
Manchester United are competing in 4 different competitions right now and it is very important for Jose Mourinho to keep his side fresh and to rotate it in order to provide competitive sides in every game. Rooney, Carrick and Mkhitaryan are doubtful for this clash but it is expected Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard to lead Man Utd’s attack against Blackburn. Manchester United are performing well on the road this season, losing only 5 games out of 18. Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young scored in United’s last visit to “Ewood Park” when they won by 2-0.
Blackburn haven’t won against United in all competitions under their own turf since 2006 when they beat them by 4-3. Hope Akpan and Elliott Bennett are both suspended for this game because they received red cards against Sheffield Wednesday. Lucas Joao can’t play as he is cup tied, Sam Gallagher is injured while Tommy Hoban and Corry Evans are lacking match fitness to start a game. Marvin Emnes and Danny Graham are expected to start up front, leading Blackburn’s attack in this very important fixture. Blackburn are performing well at “Ewood Park”, winning 3 of their last 5 games and drawing 1.
