Wednesday Football Tips: Back 17/2 Bet Builder as Blades visit Old Trafford

Erik ten Hag
Erik ten Hag can get a welcome Man Utd victory over Sheff Utd

Paul Higham has a 17/29.50 shot for Man Utd's game with Sheff Utd at Old Trafford on Wednesday...

Man Utd v Sheff Utd
Wednesday 24 April
20:00 BST kick-off

Rarely has making an FA Cup final come with so much criticism, but rightly so as Man Utd were a dodgy VAR call away from blowing it against Coventry.

Now it's back to the day job and if they do something similar against basically relegated Sheffield United then Erik ten Hag may not even be in a job for their return to Wembley next month.

The Blades won their last visit to Old Trafford three years ago, but they're 10 points from safety and one away from conceding the most goals ever in a 38-game Premier League season after shipping 88 this term.

Man Utd couldn't ask for a better fixture...

Leg 1: Gustavo Hamer 2+ fouls

Even Man Utd will have plenty of the ball against the Blades, and that means the visitors will be drawn into plenty of fouls.

And none of them do it better than Gustavo Hamer, with multiple fouls in his last three games and 50 overall this season.

Back Hamer for 2+ fouls at 1/12.00.

Leg 2: Bruno Fernandes 2+ shots on target

Perhaps the only constant performer recently for Man Utd has been Bruno Fernandes - with goals in his last four and six out of eight.

Fernandes is 6/42.50 for 2+ shots on target and against a team that concedes as many goals as Sheff Utd then that's more than a decent bet.

The skipper has had multiple shots on target in three of his last five.

Leg 3: Ben Brereton 1+ shot on target

The Stoke-born Chile international has been lively since joining the Blades and we all know by now that Man Utd allow shots on target in massive numbers.

Brereton has hit the target 12 times for Sheff Utd already, including in eight of the 11 matches he's played for the Blades.

It's 8/111.73 for Brereton to have 1+ shot on target - which given how Utd have been allowing them this season even for a side bottom of the table he's got every chance.

Back Hamer 2+ fouls, Fernandes 2+ shots on target & Brereton 1+ shot on target @ 17/29.50
