Manchester United kick off their 2023/24 FA Cup campaign on Monday night when they travel to third-tier Wigan Athletic in the third round.

A fixture rife with noughties nostalgia, it will be the first meeting between these two sides for seven years. The last time they clashed came in the FA Cup back in 2017, a game Man Utd won 4-0 at Old Trafford in one of football's more tame rivalries.

The Red Devils could do with some joy in England's oldest cup competition, with Erik ten Hag's side currently stumbling in the Premier League. The Dutchman made the FA Cup final last season but lost at the hands of rivals Manchester City.

Here is everything you need to know about United's trip to the DW Stadium.

Wigan vs Man Utd score prediction

Let's be honest, this should be a comfortable victory for Man Utd, regardless of form or confidence levels. Wigan are 17th in League One and with no Premier League action for the Red Devils until 14 January, Ten Hag should go strong for this one.

Even a disjointed Man Utd side should breeze to a relatively straightforward victory at the DW Stadium, this proving a good opportunity for some of United's underperforming players.

However, it's always difficult to know what you're going to get from the Red Devils, and they rarely make things easy for themselves.

Prediction: Wigan 1-2 Man Utd
