has changed at both clubs since then though as David Moyes has replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in charge of the Red Devils and Owen Coyle is in charge of the Latics and managing them in the Championship following relegation.

For that reason, United are the big favourites to win this one inside 90 minutes and you can back them at 4/11.

This is going to be a big test for Moyes as this is the first time his team are going to be under pressure to win a match and he knows how important a victory is, even if this isn’t the most prestigious trophy of them all.

If they were to lift the trophy though, it should build plenty of momentum ahead of the new season.

Robin van Persie will, as ever, be the key man for the Red Devils on Sunday and if he is at his best, Moyes’ men are sure to take the spoils in this one. The speculation over Wayne Rooney’s future goes on, but if United put in a big performance here and van Persie finds the net, fans might relax a little bit more.

At the moment, you can back the Dutchman to score the first goal of the game of 17/4, which many punters could see as good value.

All of the pressure is on the Champions of England and they will know that Wigan have the knowhow here at Wembley after their FA Cup win, so they have to be at their best to come out on top.

As for the Latics, the pressure is off them in this one, but they will still be looking to put in a good display and make it as tough for United to win as possible.

Owen Coyle’s men scored four past Barnsley on the opening day of the Championship season, so come into this one full of confidence and they do have the players capable of causing a few problems.

There is plenty of creativity with the likes of Shaun Maloney and Callum McManaman in the middle of the park and as we know, Grant Holt is more than capable of finding the back of the net.

Wigan are being offered at 10/1 to win this one inside 90 minutes.

It is going to be an extremely tough match for the Championship side, but if they manage to take the spoils, confidence will be sky high.

However, this game is all about United and if they perform how we know they can, they will win this one comfortably.

All of the action gets underway from 2pm on Sunday afternoon and it should be an interesting encounter.
