Manchester United will lock horns with Charlton Athletic at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, hoping to pick up a positive result in the quarter-final of the EFL Cup competition. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of a stunning 3-1 victory over Everton, whereas the visitors recorded a 2-1 win against Lincoln City.
Erik Ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as Jack Butland looks likely to make his debut on Tuesday.
4-3-3 Predicted Manchester United Lineup Vs Charlton Athletic
Jack Butland is expected to make his debut between the sticks in the upcoming clash. The English shot-stopper would look to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Tuesday.
Harry Maguire is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with Victor Lindelof slotting into the right-centre back position. Aaron Wan-Bissaka should start at the right-back position, whereas Tyrell Malacia will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.
Scott McTominay is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Fred will slot in as the central midfielder.
Christian Eriksen remains a sure-fire starter for Manchester United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Denmark international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win in midweek.
Bruno Fernandes will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.
Anthony Elanga and Alejandro Garnacho will take up the wide positions, causing menace for Dean Holden’s men down the right and left-wing, respectively.
Anthony Martial is expected to lead the line for Manchester United in midweek. The France international’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Charlton defence that has conceded six goals in their last five matches across all competitions.
Marcus Rashford could be brought off the bench as an impact substitute in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
