Manchester United will face West Ham United in the 3rd round of the Carabao Cup on September 21, 2021. The match comes just two days after a trip to London Stadium to play the Hammers in the Premier League.

The Red Devils met the Hammers in cup competition last season as well, winning 1-0 in extra time through a Scott McTominay goal on what was a pretty dull occasion. Former United manager David Moyes has turned the West London side into a formidable team over the last couple of seasons, and their midfield duo of Rice and Soucek in particular has become a problem for opponents.

This is the first non-league fixture of the new season, but the schedule will start to fill up even more tomorrow when the UEFA Champions League group stage draw is done.
