United are expected to mix it up this evening, with a mixture of young prospects, squad players and established players in the starting XI.

Injuries are an issue for Jose Mourinho, with Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Eric Bailly all currently still unavailable.

Right-back Antonio Valencia is also doubtful with a hamstring injury, but midfielder Paul Pogba is available again after suspension and forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be recalled as Mourinho looks to rest players ahead of the league game against Leicester City on Saturday.
