Manchester United take their ruthless form to the Carabao Cup when the host Burton Albion at Old Trafford. The Red Devils crushed Everton 4-0 in the Premier League with Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial registering their names on the score sheet.

A rejuvenated United are looking pretty menacing at the moment and will be looking to pile more misery on the Championship side. Given the tough fixtures ahead, Jose Mourinho is likely to induct a number of new faces to the starting lineup to test his reserve bench.

The Portuguese manager does have a number of talented youngsters at his disposal who are yet to feature in this season and despite Mourinho holding an edge this campaign, he is going to rotate his starting lineup.

United lifted the cup last time when they defeated Southampton in the League Cup final and with six games to be played in this month, the gaffer will give rest to a number of important players.

Predicted 4-2-3-1 Manchester United Starting Lineup


Sergio Romero will have his first opportunity of this season as David De Gea is unlikely to be risked in this low-key game. Romero was an important part of Mourinho’s setup last season when he influenced the team to the Europa League triumph.

Matteo Darmian should give a breather to Antonio Valencia who scored a scorcher in the last match. Darmian has been mostly used on the left side but should feature in his favourable position.

This could be the first chance for Luke Shaw to show his intent for the team. The talented left-back has been left reeling with a number of injuries and should start his journey in this match.

Victor Lindelof has featured in two matches so far and will be gearing up for this challenge. He should be able to get his confidence back with a good performance in this match. Chris Smalling will be the partner of Lindelof in the backline.


Michael Carrick will be given the chance to use his experience in a deep-lying playmaker role. This will be his maiden game this season. Ander Herrera will be assigned to the box to box role.


Scott McTominay has been sparingly used in the last season and might have a role to play on this side. He will have the no. 10 position.

Angel Gomes should start on the left-hand side while Jesse Lingard will be on the right flank. Anthony Martial will start up front.

Here is how they might line up:
