Premier League giant Manchester United will play Rochdale AFC in the third round of this year’s Carabao Cup at Old Trafford. Manchester United have been struggling in the Premier League this season and will hope to bounce back from Sunday’s loss to West Ham United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope the United youngsters step up and take the opportunity handed to them with both hands. Here is the predicted starting line-up for Wednesday night's Carabao Cup encounter at Old Trafford.
It has been a rough couple of weeks for Manchester United fans. Manchester United have just won two of their six matches in the Premier League so far. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will start a host of United youngsters such as Tahith Chong, Axel Tuanzebe, Mason Greenwood and Angel Gomes in tonight’s Carabao Cup encounter. Marcus Rashford’s injury will force Solskjaer to play Greenwood upfront alongside Gomes and Jesse Lingard.
Meanwhile, Tuanzebe will play against Rochdale, where he grew up, in the Carabao Cup. It will be an emotional moment for the youngster. Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Paul Pogba will be given some game time at Old Trafford. Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot is also likely to be given an opportunity to play after being replaced in the first team by Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Fred will also be given an opportunity to prove himself to OGS as Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata will be given some rest tomorrow.
