Starting XI: Northampton Town v Manchester United – EFL Cup 2016/17

MacFinder

Manchester United face Northampton Town in the EFL Cup at Sixfields Stadium this evening, a match Jose Mourinho’s side head into after losing three matches in a row. United are in the basement in terms of confidence, despite it being so much better at the start of the season. Leaks are finding their way into the hands of the media, Wayne Rooney is being slated by many supporters (rightly so) and things are just not looking as good as they were just over a month ago. Should United lose this match, it will be four in a row with United heading into a Premier League clash with Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday, with them losing to Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Tuesday evening. United will need to find their feet, and fast, or this season could go horribly wrong with similar problems as the last three seasons. Is the manager to blame, or do some of the players now need to take a long hard look in the mirror and see everything is not as good as they think it is? Wayne Rooney, I was looking at you. Here are the starting XI’s and list of substitutes for both teams this evening.

Manchester United:

Romero;

Fosu-Mensah, Smalling, Blind, Rojo;

Schneiderlin, Carrick;

Memphis, Herrera, Young;

Rooney

Substitutes:

Johnstone; Darmian; Mata, Lingard, Fellaini; Ibrahimovic, Rashford

Northampton Town:

Smith;

Moloney, Diamond, Zakuani, Buchanan;

McCourt;

Gorre, Beautyman, Taylor, Hoskins;

Revell

Substitutes:

Cornell, Byrom, Richards, Potter, Sonupe, O’Toole, Nyatanga
