Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic Pick, Prediction and Odds

These are early days of Barclays Premier League, and Manchester United is going to face Wigan Athletic in front of their home crowd at historic Old Trafford stadium, Manchester. The match is scheduled to start at 10 AM EDT on 15th September 2012. Manchester United is considered to be one of the strongest sides in the world football while Wigan is still trying to gain name and fame for themselves, but having said that, both the teams have the potential of outplaying their opponent on any given day. Manchester United finished runners up while Wigan finished on 15th position, which is way below Manchester United. That, however, does not suggest that Wigan is a weak team and even Manchester United cannot afford to be complacent against them. All in all, it is expected to be a very entertaining game of football.

Manchester United has played three games so far in this competition and is currently placed comfortably on 5th position. If Manchester United is able to prevail over Wigan in this game, they'll make it to the top of the table. Wigan Athletic, who is currently placed at 9th position, if win, will make it to top five neglecting other results of the league on that day. United has played flawless football in their past games except in their game against Everton where they had to face a surprise defeat. Manchester United has won two of their three games of this season and all of those were away games. Wigan had to settle for a draw against Southampton while they faced a major loss (2-0) against Chelsea. Overall, both sides look balanced and it is first home game for Manchester United in this season, so a lot of fan pressure would be on them.

Its first home game of the season of Manchester United and a lot is expected of them. Manchester United looks a stronger side, both on paper and statistically. More often than not, they've thrashed Wigan in their previous encounters. I expect same to happen again, despite Wigan gaining some momentum this season with two back to back victories.

Considering form, balance and formation, Manchester United looks a better unit overall. But, it really depends on how the teams perform on-field rather than off-field. In my opinion, Wigan will struggle in this game and taste its second defeat of the season.
