Manchester United take on Brighton in the League Cup this evening, taking on the side we beat in the 100th minute on Saturday, in a bid to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted for a very different starting XI in a bid to get more playing time and match fitness to other players in the squad.

Brighton hit the woodwork five times on Saturday, a record not surpassed since Opta stats began, and thought they’d rescued a point in injury time. However, the last action of the game saw Brighton concede a penalty for handball which Bruno Fernandes scored to wrap up all three points for United. No doubt they will be looking for revenge this evening.

Henderson, Dalot, Bailly, Lindelof, Williams, McTominay, Fred, Mata, Van de Beek, James, Ighalo.
Subs: Grant, Fosu-Mensah, Mengi, Lingard, Pogba, Greenwood, Rashford.
