Wigan Athletic vs Man Utd live stream: How to watch the FA Cup third round online. The Wigan Athletic vs Man Utd live stream features two teams looking to forget about their struggles in the league and reach the fourth round of the FA Cup as the Latics welcome United to the DW Stadium on Monday.
Man Utd manager Erik Ten Hag will hope the FA Cup can provide a welcome distraction after a disastrous period that has seen his side dumped out of European competition and suffering Premier League defeats to Nottm Forest, Bournemouth and West Ham. The Red Devils have traditionally excelled in the FA Cup, winning the tournament on 12 occasions and reaching the final last year where they lost to rivals Man City.
United also have a wonderful record against Wigan, having only lost to the club once in their history, with the most recent victory coming in 2017 when they secured a thumping 4-0 win. That means it will be a huge task for the Latics and young manager Shaun Maloney, but the Scot will hope a boisterous crowd at the DW Stadium can inspire his players and put United under pressure early on.

Manchester United head to Wigan tonight in the FA Cup third round.
Separated by 53 places on the Football League ladder, these two teams are similar in more ways than you might expect with both facing an uphill task to rebuild after off-pitch financial chaos and multiple years below their incredible, recent peaks.
Naturally, the expectations will still be with Man Utd as they make the 40-minute journey to the DW Stadium.
Erik ten Hag watched on as his team threw away the momentum of a superb comeback win over Aston Villa by losing away to Nottingham Forest last time out.
Wigan, meanwhile, struck late to draw at Barnsley on New Year's Day to put them 17th in the third-tier table after contending with a hefty points deduction to start their campaign.
Liverpool loanee James Balagizi ended his time at Wigan in the build-up to this cup tie. Tom Pearce and Jason Kerr are out with the Latics sweating over the fitness of Stephen Humphrys and Scott Smith.
United welcomed Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro back to training this week, but they will not feature here.
Andre Onana is set to keep Altay Bayindir out of goal having delayed his flight to join the Cameroon squad at the Africa Cup of Nations. Sofyan Amrabat has travelled after being called up by Morocco.
The likes of Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Tyrell Malacia and Mason Mount are all out, while Rasmus Hojlund and Anthony Martial remain doubts and Jadon Sancho unavailable as he closes in on a return to Borussia Dortmund.
The trip to DW Stadium will only be a short journey for Erik ten Hag's side as they aim to avoid an upset against a team two tiers below them in the football league pyramid. Ten Hag reached the FA Cup final in his debut campaign at United in 2023 before losing out to arch rivals Mancheste
