Loads of Man Utd fans react as Tuanzebe and Bailly start in new-look defence vs Everton

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made plenty of changes to his Manchester United lineup for  tonight’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Everton at Goodison Park. 

The competition represents a great chance for Solskjaer to claim his first trophy as United manager, and squad depth in his squad has allowed the Norwegian to field a strong side despite resting key players.

Carlo Ancelotti, meanwhile, has named his strongest side in what the Liverpool Echo’s Adam Jones has told us is Everton’s biggest game of the season.

United appear to be lining up in a diamond formation this evening in their bid to reach the semi-finals.

Dean Henderson assumes his place in goal in the Carabao Cup, but he is protected by a new-look defence including Axel Tuanzebe and Eric Bailly.

Tuanzebe comes in for the injured Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back and Bailly partners captain Harry Maguire in defence with Victor Lindelof earning himself a well deserved rest.

Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek, Bruno Fernandes and Nemanja Matic are included in a talented midfield quartet.

Fernandes is likely to be the most advanced supporting a double-pronged attack of Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani.

But we also wouldn’t be surprised to see Pogba drift to the left-flank and Greenwood play on the right-hand side.
