Predicted Starting XI: Manchester United vs Ipswich Town

Manchester United kick-off their Capital One Cup campaign with a potentially tricky tie at home to Ipswich Town. Louis van Gaal lost his only game in this competition so far, as his side were hammered 4-0 away at MK Dons at this stage last term.

With that in mind, I expect the manager to pick a stronger team this time around. De Gea will keep his place in goal, with a solid back two of Chris Smalling and Daley Blind in front of him. Morgan Schneiderlin and Anthony Martial will all continue.

The newcomers to the team will be Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira, who were both left out of the U21 side which played on Monday night.

They’ll also be some much-needed game-time for the likes of Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini.

Predicted XI

De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Young; Schneiderlin, Herrera; Lingard, Fellaini, Pereira; Martial.
