Manchester United to win the FA Cup


Newport vs Manchester United stat pack

Here are all the key stats you need to know ahead of the game on Sunday:

  • This will be the first-ever competitive meeting between Newport County and Manchester United. The Exiles have won just one of their past 23 meetings with top-flight opponents in all competitions, beating Leicester City in the FA Cup in 2018/19.
  • This will be Manchester United’s first FA Cup game in Wales since the 2005 final against Arsenal, when the Red Devils lost 5-4 on penalties following a 0-0 draw. Their only previous away game against Welsh opposition in the competition was a 5-0 win at Wrexham in January 1957.
  • Newport County have progressed from just two of their eight FA Cup fourth-round ties.
  • Manchester United have progressed from 49 of their past 51 FA Cup ties against teams from outside the top flight, failing only in 2009/10 against Leeds and 2021/22 against Middlesbrough. Away from home, they are unbeaten in 28 matches in the FA Cup against sides not in the top flight, since losing to Bournemouth in January 1984.
