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

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.
