After a frustrating draw at Old trafford, Jose Mourinho will look to continue his fruitful relationship with English football’s second-tier cup competition when his Manchester United team take on West Ham United for the second time in the space of four days in the EFL Cup quarter-finals at Old Trafford.
David De gea will start as the Red Devils can’t risk loosing this game. Luke Shaw is likely to return having not featured since October’s draw with Burnley, the utility-man Daley Blind might also lead the defence with Phil Jones. Anotonio Valencia being one of the best players in the team this season,will start the game.
Bookings picked up by Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini during that game have ruled them out of this evening’s clash, and reports have suggested Bastian Schweinsteiger could play his first Manchester United match under Jose Mourinho. He’s not likely to start the game but he’ll probably be on the bench. Carrick and Herrera will probably start the game.
Anothony Martial would probably start the game while Marcus Rashford will likely be retained from the first team. Martial really needs to put on a special performance tonight if he wants to stay in the first team in a long run.In Addition to that, Jamie Redknapp redently said,”Martial is on the bench and if Manchester United let him go he could be another De bruyne, a Lukaku or a Mata.”
After delivering a great performance in the game against Feyenoord, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Wayne Rooney might start the game with Juan Mata on bench. After scoring the vital equalizer in the last game, Zlatan Ibrahimovic would look to continue his scoring run. According to the reports,one more outcast of this season, Memphis Depay might feature on the bench. Memphis has been linked in a loan move to Everton on January.
