Manchester United begin their Carabao Cup defense at home to Crystal Palace this evening, and a second consecutive victory would at least partially dispel the gloom hanging over the club.
Erik ten Hag’s side were not very convincing in the victory at Burnley, achieved thanks to a moment of magic from Bruno Fernandes, but at least have the likes of Raphael Varane and Sofyan Amrabat back on form.
This match is reminiscent of Darren Ambrose’s superb long-range goal in 2011, when Palace scored a famous victory at Old Trafford to reach the semi-finals, before losing to Cardiff City on penalties. United and Palace also have history in the FA Cup, with United breaking Ian Wright’s heart after a replay in 1990 and Alan Pardew’s sideline dance cursing Palace at Wembley in the 2016 final.
Palace’s start to the league season hasn’t been particularly worrying or encouraging, with eight points from six games. Odsonne Édouard and Michael Olise have suffered injury problems, with Roy Hodgson regretting being forced into numerous rotations in the League Cup.
The Crystal Palace boss said: “It’s a bit disappointing because at the start of the season I hadn’t considered where we were and thought we could really have a go (at the League Cup). Now we’re going to try anyway, but I’m sure people like you will criticize the fact that the team playing Tuesday night might be different than this one.
Mason Mount could return to action for United, alongside Harry Maguire, but Ten Hag have another injury worry in the form of Sergio Reguilon. Jadon Sancho continues to be in exile away from all first-team activities.
Full team news will be available soon.
