Swansea City come into this game off the back of a 2-1 loss against Leicester City over the weekend.

That result leaves them agonizingly close to the relegation zone.

But now they turn their attention to the Carabao Cup as they look to win at least one trophy this season.

They are expected to name a strong side for this game just like they did in the last round against Reading.

Wilfried Bony is a doubt and will likely not feature, but Tammy Abraham has been outstanding since he joined them over the summer and has largely been the preferred choice so far.

They currently have three losses from their last four games but they have improved this season and have shown some brilliant plays in some of those games.

Manchester United should approach this game like wounded lions after their shocking 2-1 loss to Huddersfield over the weekend.

That was their first loss of the season.

Prior to that they had won 10 of 12 games while drawing the other two.

United still miss the influence of midfielder Paul Pogba and they are still expected to make changes with the Likes of David De Gea and Romelu Lukaku expected to be rested, while Victor Lindelof, Marcus Rashford and Jese Lingard should start.

They won their last match in this competition 4-1 to Burton.
