Manchester United haven’t won any major trophy since lifting both the League Cup and Europa League in 2017.
Thus, thee Red Devils endured a fifth successive trophyless season last time round, with this last happening in 1974.
So, it may only be the League Cup, but hoisting this trophy aloft at Wembley in February would be massive for Erik ten Hag.
In the previous round, Man United ousted Aston Villa in a six-goal thriller, with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay all on target.
Meanwhile, Man United have won four of their last seven Premier League games, climbing up to fifth.
So, will they avoid an embarrassing upset here?
Vincent Kompany lifted four League Cups during his time at Manchester City, victorious on five of his 11 visits to Old Trafford.
Now Burnley manager, the Belgian has steered the Clarets to the top of the Championship, with Saturday’s victory over Middlesbrough their third in a row.
In the Carabao Cup, the Clarets have so far seen off Shrewsbury and Crawley to set up this glamour tie.
Burnley won 2-0 at Old Trafford in January 2020, their first victory there in 21 attempts and 58 years.
Can Kompany’s men pull off a massive shock, or will Manchester United reach the quarter-finals?
