Huddersfield Town vs. Manchester United

United come into the match having lost two of their last three games, the most recent of which came against relegation-threatened Newcastle United, who upset the Red Devils 1-0 at St James' Park on Sunday.

Football writer Liam Canning and ESPN's Rob Dawson were critical of their showing:

Liam Canning @LiamPaulCanning

Manchester United simply not good enough. Lack of urgency, bar a few, is utterly ridiculous. Marking is non-existent. The fact you have a centre back diving says it all - absolute mockery.

Rob Dawson @RobDawsonESPN

United had chances today but they got what they deserved. Started both halves slowly and defending for Newcastle's goal was awful. Never really at it.

United's defending in particular was unconvincing, and they were also fortunate not to give away a penalty in the clash.

Up front, through a combination of profligacy and a superb debut performance from Martin Dubravka in Newcastle's goal, they failed to take a number of good chances.

Despite their shaky recent form, the Red Devils will be encouraged by the fact they beat Huddersfield in the match prior to the Newcastle defeat.

It's likely to be tougher for them at the John Smith's Stadium than it was at Old Trafford, but United will be looking for a win here.

The FA Cup remains their best chance of silverware this season, so it's critical they progress.


Wigan Athletic vs. Manchester City

Man City's clash with Wigan is a repeat of the 2013 FA Cup final, which the Latics memorably won.

Wigan are two divisions lower than the Sky Blues now, and while they're flying high at the top of League One, they will be up against it to pull off another upset here.

City thrashed Leicester 5-1 in their last domestic outing, and manager Pep Guardiola won't let their standards slip despite the lower-quality opposition.

Sergio Aguero hit a stunning four-goal haul against the Foxes:

He had to share the headlines with team-mate Kevin De Bruyne, though, after he ran the show from start to finish, per Squawka Football:

Squawka Football @Squawka

Kevin De Bruyne's game by numbers vs. Leicester: 111 touches 69 (84%) passes completed 6 chances created 3 take-ons completed 3 assists 1 tackle won His first Premier League hat-trick of assists. https://t.co/rsWevVejmQ

If the Sky Blues' world-class playmaker and goalscorer are on song again, it should be a comfortable evening for City on Monday.

Even if they're not, City have the depth to ensure they still get the result they need.
