Man United vs Crystal Palace match preview
The remaining Premier League clubs are entering the Carabao Cup this round.
Man United will be looking to get their title defence off to a strong start and advance to the 4th round.
But it won't be easy, drawing fellow Premier League club Crystal Palace.
When it comes to the form line of these 2 teams it's pretty hard to split them.
Neither team has started the season fast, sitting 9th and 10th respectively in the league. A win last start for United might've taken some of the pressure off manager Erik ten Hag, but he will need to see improvement from his side in the cup.
In team news Man United might be welcoming back a host of players, with Harry Maguire and Sergio Reguilon odds on to return after suffering a head knock and nursing an illness respectively.
It might be too soon for defender Lisandro Martinez and midfielder Mason Mount, but United will be buoyed by Sofyan Amrabat who made his full debut last start.
On the other side, Palace's Manager Roy Hodgson said with the injury toll mounting, "We've got to use our squad, there is no question there."
Key frontman Odsonne Edouard is in doubt having felt something in his hamstring last start. If he is out, it will be yet another injury in a long line of them with the likes of Michael Olise, Matheus Franca and Jefferson Lerma likely to miss the club clash.
With a host of injuries, we aren't expecting an absolute classic at the theatre of dreams early Wednesday morning.
But we do think Man United will have enough firepower to get through to the next round. We are expecting United to win it 2-0.
