Manchester United Football Club beat Chelsea in the Carabao Cup last night, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer getting the better of Frank Lampard for the second time this term.
Marcus Rashford stole the show with a brilliant brace, though it was a quality overall performance from the 20-time Premier League champions.
When you’re into the final eight of any competition, you’ve always a chance at going all the way. There are some quality teams left in the tournament, though the draw has now been made…
I’m pleased to say that United have been handed a favourable quarter-final tie, with the Old Trafford club hosting Colchester United.
Barring absolute disaster, United should book their place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals before the turn of the year. They’re currently playing their football in League Two, but they have come so far so they mustn’t be taken lightly.
This also presents the Baby Faced Assassin with another opportunity to get another look at the mega-talented youth at his disposal. Hopefully, we’ll see heavy doses of Brandon Williams, Mason Greenwood, Angel Gomes and James Garner…
Before then, though, the Reds have some incredibly important league games to play so it’s best to concentrate on those fixtures first.
