Just four days after Manchester United committed daylight robbery in their last-gasp league win at Brighton & Hove Albion, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side return to face the Seagulls again. However, Wednesday’s Carabao Cup tie at the Amex Stadium should be very different to Saturday’s, with both managers set to rotate their starting lineups.
Brighton will still be without the suspended Yves Bissouma, while José Izquierdo, Florin Andone and Christian Walton are all injured. The superbly named Argentine, Alexis Mac Allister, is a doubt. United’s only confirmed absentees are Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones, though the usual first-team stars are likely to be given a rest here. Look for the likes of Dean Henderson, Donny van der Beek and Odion Ighalo to be given minutes.
Carabao Cup schedule
It’s a 19:45 kickoff in the UK, which translates to 14:45 on the east coast of the U.S. and a cultured 11:45 on the west.
