Manchester United were ousted by MK Dons in the last season’s Capital One Cup and must take the competition seriously this time around.
Last night, in form Arsenal side lost were humiliated by Sheffield Wednesday and Chelsea lost against Stoke City.
Hence, the league cup game cannot be taken lightly. Dutch manager Louis van Gaal should make more than a few changes to the starting XI that played in the derby last weekend against Manchester City.
Summer signing Memphis Depay has been warming the bench lately but he may get the nod to start in the midweek contest.
Depay’s compatriot Daley Blind has been out of the starting XI for quite some time as well and the former Ajax star may return as well. Captain Wayne Rooney might be rested and Fellaini may start with Martial up front.
Here is Man United’s potential 4-3-1-2 formation vs Middlesbrough.
