With one win in their last five league games in the Championship, Blackburn Rovers will turn their attention into the FA Cup as they host in-form Manchester United at the Ewood Park in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
The Hosts Are In Trouble
The hosts have been struggling in the Championship since the start of the season. Blackburn Rovers have collected a total of 5 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Championship. Their last league match was against Sheffield Wednesday away from home where they lost 2-1.
Blackburn Rovers are currently sitting in the 23rd place in the league table. They have 29 points from 7 wins, 8 draws and 16 losses. The team scored 36 goals and conceded 49 since the start of the season.
The Red Devils To Rotate Their Squad
The visitors have been in a good form recently as the team is unbeaten in the Premier League for an astonishing 15-game streak. Manchester United have collected a total of 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Premier League. Their last league match was against Watford at home where they won 2-0.
Manchester United are currently sitting in the 6th place in the league table. They have 48 points from 13 wins, 9 draws and 3 losses. They have scored 38 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
Ander Herrera and Eric Bailly are both suspended for the reverse leg on Thursday and could retain their place in the team here. Sergio Romero is expected to retain his spot between the sticks. Luke Shaw could be given another opportunity to impress here. Axel Tuanzebe made his first-team debut in the last round and could get more minutes here depending on the scoreline.
Head To Head
Manchester United have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in April 2012 when the final score was 2-0 to Manchester United away from home.
