Team news

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to make changes for the Carabao Cup third round game against West Ham on Wednesday night.

The Norwegian has already hinted that midfielder Jesse Lingard, who scored in each of his last two Premier League games against Newcastle and the Hammers on Sunday, will face the club where he played the second half of last season’s Loans.

Striker Edinson Cavani (muscle strain) and defender Alex Telles (ankle) could return and goalkeepers Tom Heaton and Dean Henderson hope for a break from David De Gea while Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Diogo Dalot, Donny van de Beek, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial as well as the youngsters Anthony Elanga, Teden Mengi, Hannibal Mejbri and Shola Shoretire could be considered.

For defender Phil Jones (fitness), midfielder Amad (thigh) and striker Marcus Rashford (shoulder), the game is likely to come too early.
