Manchester United will lock horns with Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday night hoping to pick up a win and progress into the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup. The Red Devils tore apart Leeds’ defence as they put six past them last week whereas Ancelotti’s men showed great determination to win 2-1 vs Arsenal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation with a few tweaks from their last game. Van De Beek might get the nod over Bruno Fernandes whereas Mason Greenwood looks likely to make his way back into the starting XI.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Everton
Dean Henderson is expected to replace David De Gea in between the sticks for the cup fixture. The English goalkeeper put up a satisfactory performance at Bramall Lane after committing an early mistake.
Victor Lindelof has been playing through pain (back) for some time now and might be rested on Wednesday.
Axel Tuanzebe might be given a rare opportunity to form the centre-half partnership with Harry Maguire whereas Alex Telles will come in for Luke Shaw, who was subbed off in the second-half due to illness. Timothy Fosu-Mensah will replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka as the right-back.
Scott McTominay was forced off the pitch in the second-half vs Leeds United due to a groin injury and could miss the Carabao Cup quarter-final vs Everton.
Therefore, we might get to see Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba in the holding midfield positions. The French midfielder has put up some commendable performances lately and will be determined to make the most of this opportunity.
Donny Van De Beek looks likely to swap places with Bruno Fernandes for the midweek clash. The Portuguese playmaker has been working tirelessly for his side, carrying most of the creative and goal-scoring burdens, and might be given a routine rest.
Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood will occupy the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing respectively.
Edinson Cavani has returned from injury and could lead the line for the away side on Wednesday. The Uruguayan striker’s adept movement in front of the goal can be utilized as an asset against Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
