Manchester United will be stepping up their preparations for their second match with West Ham in a matter of days today.
Following on from their dramatic 2-1 victory at the London Stadium on Sunday thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jesse Lingard, as well as David de Gea’s last-minute penalty save, the two sides will face off again on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup.
The match will be at Old Trafford this time around and both teams are likely to name several changes to their starting XIs but, hopefully, it will be another thrilling encounter.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already confirmed that Lingard will start the game.
“He’ll play, of course, on Wednesday because we will make a few changes,” he said.
“It was quite clear that he wants to fight for his place and want to be a part of a United team he feels is going places. For me, I can’t speak for Jesse now, but he is really contributing.”
Stay tuned for the latest United news all day long.
