Manchester United are odds-on with bookmakers to win this fourth round tie, but this is far from a certain victory for Louis van Gaal’s side who have only won one of their last six away games in all competitions (D2, L3).

Derby have only lost twice at home this season (W7, D5) and are as big as 18/5 with Betfair to win in front of the BBC cameras on Friday night.

But the Rams have not won a league game since Boxing Day when they were top of the Championship – just 2 points from five games since then has left them in fifth.

United have failed to score more than one goal in four of their last five away league games, while Derby have scored just twice in their last four league games.

We therefore suggest backing both 1-0 scorelines, plus a 1-1 draw with Bet365, who refund losing Correct Score bets on all games that finish 0-0.

As we anticipate a close game, we cannot resist those odds of 18/5 with Betfair on the hosts, but also suggest backing them with a 0.5 goal start at 39/40 with Bet365.

Finally, Tom Ince has scored five goals in Derby’s last eight league games and is a tempting 41/10 with 888sport to score in this game (as short as 15/8 elsewhere).
