Frank Lampard Faces Jose Mourinho

Manchester United will play Derby County on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup third round clash at Old Trafford today.

The reds head into the game after a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers in their Premier League campaign during the weekend.

Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho, has revealed that he will hand summer signing, Diogo Dalot, his second start for United at the right back, a week after his debut against Young Boys.

Ashley Young has not played on the opposite flank since the win at Watford, but may get the opportunity to play today.

Marcus Rashford sitting out the final match of his three-game ban, and Romelu Lukaku likely to be rested, Mourinho may use Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial in his attack.

Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo are struggling with injury problems, while Nemanja Matic returns from suspension and could play against County.

On the other hand, Derby County head into the game following a 3-1 victory over Brentford in the Championship fixture on Saturday.

Tuesday’s clash will be the 107th meeting between the two clubs, with United winning 46 of the previous encounters, losing 31 and drawing 30.

Derby coach, Frank Lampard must decide whether to start forwards, David Nugent or Jack Marriott in his attack line.

Midfielder, George Evans and defender, Curtis Davies are fitness doubts, while utility player, Ikechi Anya has not featured for County since May because of a long-term injury.

Manchester United’s potential starting XI: Romero; Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Dalot; Pereira, Matic, McTominay; Sanchez, Martial, Mata.

Derby County’s potential starting XI: Carson; Bogle, Keogh, Tomori, Malone; Johnson, Ledley, Mount; Jozefzoon, Marriott, Bennett.
