Confirmed Manchester United XI v Man City – Carabao Cup semi-final

Edinson Cavani is sidelined for Manchester United following an FA ban, but other than Phil Jones we’ve got everyone else available tonight.

The 33-year-old striker serves the second match of a three-game ban handed down by the FA for using a racial term in a social media post.

Dean Henderson starts in goal — behind a four-man defence consisting of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw.

That means there’s no place for Eric Bailly at centre-back and he’s been playing very well of late.

Fred and Scott McTominay’s formidable partnership sees them both start in the same midfield as Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba. We should have enough energy in that quartet to keep up with City’s possession dependant style.

The goals will need to come from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial up front. Both need to be more clinical with their finishing and what better night to hit the back of the net?
