Wigan Athletic V Manchester United Betting Preview, Community Shield, Sunday 11th August 2013

Well its a very diffrent Community Shield this year as we have two teams with two very diffrent season objectives on one hand you have Manchester United with a new manager in David Moyes having taking the impossible job of following Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. Moyes has alot to prove and the Community Shield will be his first real chance to show what he can do.With no new signings as yet and rumours of Fabergas (Barca) & the faint possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo making a comeback to Old Trafford.

I think this is aiming a bit too high and the more likely signings will be Baines & Fellani from his old club Everton which would be very smart buissness.  Wigan Atletic who won the F.A Cup last season but failed to secure there Premier League status and were relegated to the Championship. But new boss Owen Coyle has really hit the ground running at Wigan with some some very positive signings with the likes of Leon Barnett & Grant Holt ( Norwich ) & James Mclean ( Sunderland ) are amongst 10 new signings made by Coyle who is keen to litter his side with Premier League expericance and quality.

And this is already proved to be the right move as Holt & Mclean both scored in Wigans opening day 4-0 away win at Barnsley And althought it would still be hard to find an argument for Manchester losing this match. I think Wigan can surprise the football world again at Wembley this Sunday.

Wigan Athletic V Manchester United Team News

Wigan Team News : No major injury concerns for Owen Coyles men as he is set to name an unchanged side from the 4-0 away win at Barnsley with new signings Mclean,Holt,Barrett & Goalkeeper Scott Carson all expected to start.

Manchester United Team  News : With Wayne Rooney still not match fit & the wantaway strikers much reported move to chelsea on the cards.Rooney was made to train with the reserves on thursday as David Moyes finalised his prematch preperations with the first team squad.

It’s unlikey Rooney will make the trip & with Darren Fletcher still sidelined and Nani a doubt Moyes will use the depth he has at Old Trafford & may go with Micheal Carrick & Tom Clerverly in the centre of midfield with Ashley Young on the left & Wilfried Zaha who has looked very sharp in pre season for the red on the right.

As for the front line is anybodys guess with Van Persie , Hernandez & Danny Wellbeck all available.

Wigan V Manchester United Head to Head Statistics

Sunday afternoons match from Wembley Stadium ( London ) will become the 18th meeting between the two nations since 2005 & with Manchester Utd dominating the stats. The summary of those matches available in our head to head statistics table shown below.

  • Manchester Utd Victories : 16

  • Draws : 0
  • Wigan Victories : 1
  • Wigan Goals Scored : 5

Who Has The Advantage ?

Manchester Utd will be the out & out favourites here after a dominating history with wigan & there Quality Depth & Experiance should see them lift the Community Shield. But its not all wrapped up in my mind. When you add the varibles of David Moyes under pressure to to hit the ground running & no new signings to showcase Wigan boss Owen Coyle could see a small gap to exploit.

And with Wigan already showing they can win the big match at Wembley after Lifting The FA Cup last season & there new look squad littered with Premier League experiance with the like of Carson, Holt, Barnett who have big match experiance & Mclean who can cause alot of damage down the wings. I dont expect this Wigan side to just roll over & Yeild to The Reds as preseason form tells a very diffrent story.

Manchester Utd have scored 15 Goals in there last 5 games but conceding 12 and only mustering up 1 win 3 draws & 1 loss in that time will be a major concern for David Moyes. Wigans form has been very good with 8 goals scored in the last 5 games. but the important stats here are they managed 3 wins & 2 losses with 2 clean sheets.

Average Goals Per Game ?

Head to Head Stats are in Manchester Uniteds Favour with a 3.18 goals per game against the lactics & Wigan with a 0.29 goals per game avg against The Reds.

Wigan v Manchester United Betting Predictions

I have some concerns over United’s form of late. They have conceded 13 goals in there last 5 and there squad is a year older and a new pre season regime is bound to take its toll in the early part of this season & when you add the fact that when they look over to the bench & Sir Alex wont be there & an the unfamiliar scottish accent shouting from the sidelines. For a manchester United side that a majority of the players have known nothing else but Sir Alex .

I can see Wigan making a real match of this with there goal scoring form & the new additions to the squad. this could be the perfect chance for Wigan to say to the world. “Dont forget us..We will be back soon”

As such and based on the information gathered a go in the goals market with a Draw after 90 mins would be my  punt on this one..But dont count Wigan out and a cheeky fiver on a wigan win isn’t as far fecthed as the market will make you believe
