Manchester United will look to book their place in the fourth round of the League Cup when they take on Burton at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Here is the team I think Jose Mourinho will pick for the game:


Goalkeeper: The United boss is expected to make plenty of changes to his starting eleven so Sergio Romero could be handed his first start of the season with David De Gea rested.

Defence: We should see wholesale changes at the back with Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling in-line to replace first choice pairing Eric Bailly and Phil Jones in the middle of defence.

Antonio Valencia should be given a breather with Matteo Darmian coming in at right-back while Luke Shaw is expected to feature after being left out of the U23’s squad last night. Ashley Young will be the man to make way if Shaw starts.

Midfield: Paul Pogba continues to miss out with a hamstring injury so we should see Nemanja Matic and Marouane Fellaini protected by Mourinho tomorrow night.

That could see Michael Carrick make his first appearance of the season while Ander Herrera is also pushing for a recall after finding regular football hard to come by this season.

Youngster Tommy McTominay is expected to be given a chance to impress while Angel Gomes is also pushing to be involved in the squad.

Attack: Romelu Lukaku and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are likely to be rested for the visit of Burton so Marcus Rashford could be given a rare chance through the middle.

That would see Anthony Martial recalled on the left side of attack while Jesse Lingard could also be handed a start with Juan Mata dropping to the bench.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
