Confirmed Starting XI: Martial and Rashford tasked to put Manchester United into the fifth round of the Carabao Cup

Manchester United will face Swansea City in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Manchester United:

Romero;

Darmian, Lindelof, Smalling, Blind;

Tuanzebe, Herrera;

Lingard, McTominay, Martial;

Rashford

Substitutes:

Pereira; Jones, Shaw; Mata, Mkhitaryan, Matic; Lukaku

In all of the matches played, United have won 14 times, drawn six times and lost ten times. The last defeat to Swansea was on the 30th August 2015, a 2-1 defeat at the Liberty Stadium. Since that match, the two sides have met four times, United winning three and drawing once.
