MANCHESTER UNITED vs SCUNTHORPE LIVE & HIGHLIGHTS
DATE: 22 September 2010, TIME: 20:45 GMT
Preview:Michael Owen will be looking to take this oppertunity and grab it with both hands as his appearences in the matches have dropped dramaticaly in the past few weeks and the emergence of Real Berbatove is making his life more difficult at United, If things remain the same for him he will be looking to use the January transfer window and move on to some club where he can find some playing time, because at United he is 4th choice striker at the moment. While two young guns Kiko and Javier Hernandez are waiting for their chances too as Rooney and berbatove are Sir Alex’s first choice pairing though Rooney is not playing perticularly well so both young striker will be looking to take this oppertunity.
Predictions: On paper its a easy game for United but Scunthorpe playing at home might prove difficult but the win over Liverpool on the weekend will serve as the confidence booster and United will be looking to put this tie to bed in the first leg. Im predicting a easy win for United [Scunthorpe 1-3 Man Utd]
