Confirmed Starting XI: Paul Pogba starts against Rochdale, Greenwood fit; Williams on the bench

MacFinder

Manchester United will face Rochdale in the third round of the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford this evening. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad let the club down at the weekend with a poor 2-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham United, the second defeat in a row at the London Stadium. After a lacklustre start to the season, something needs to change.

Rochdale manager Brian Barry-Murphy is seeking to overcome a poor period for his team after a relatively good start to the season. This match against United could come at the right time for him to take advantage of a club in dire straits right now. United, however, could look to build some confidence in this match, which is what they need to be doing.

Manchester United:

Romero;

Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Jones, Rojo;

Fred, Pogba;

Pereira, Lingard, Chong;

Greenwood

Substitutes:

Grant; Lindelof, Williams; Mata, James, Garner, McTominay

Rochdale:

Sanchez;

Matheson, Morley, McNulty, Norrington-Davies;

Dooley, Williams, Rathbone, Camps, Keohane;

Henderson

Substitutes:

Lynch, Andrew, Wilbraham, Ryan, Bradley, Tavares, Thomas

United and Rochdale have met once in the history of both clubs. United won that match 2-0 which was an FA Cup third-round fixture played at Old Trafford on the 9 January 1986, before Sir Alex Ferguson managed the club. Mark Hughes and Frank Stapleton scored the goals in that match. United will need to show improvement in this match.
