Manchester United vs Colchester: Match preview

Man United last won the Carabao Cup in 2016-17, when a Jose Mourinho team beat Southampton 3-2 in the final.

Will the Red Devils go on to win the trophy for the 6th time in their history?

If that happens, United will draw level with Man City on winning 6 League Cup trophies.

Focusing on Colchester, however, it’s pretty obvious that United have pulled a favourable tie.

Optimists may like to recall that the likes of Derby County and Bristol City have knocked out Man United in this competition in recent years.

But Colchester are 9th in League Two, and they are the lowest ranked team left in the competition.

Colchester have impressed in the Carabao Cup this season, where they’ve already dispatched Premier League sides Crystal Palace and Tottenham.

But can Colchester really go to Old Trafford and win?

That may prove difficult, especially after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned fortunes around in his last few games.

Manchester United team news vs Colchester

Solskjaer is likely to rotate his squad for the Carabao Cup tie.

After a long absence from the first team, Diogo Dalot could be involved on Wednesday.

Solskjaer will continue to be without Paul Pogba (ankle), while Marcos Rojo is a doubt too.

Sergio Romero will start in goal for United, while Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones could get minutes in defence.

Further forward, youngsters James Garner and Mason Greenwood may start.

Colchester team news vs Manchester United

Colchester are on a 6-game unbeaten run in League Two, and manager John McGreal is set to field his regular starting XI.

Winger Courtney Senior is doubt with a quad issue.

One familiar name in the Colchester team will be former Arsenal Under-23s player Cohen Bramall.

Luke Norris leads Colchester’s league scoring charts with 6 goals.

Theo Robinson and veteran Frank Nouble have scored three apiece in League Two.

Manchester United last five games: DWWWD

Santa’s already been kind to Solskjaer this Christmas.

After a shaky November that included defeats to Bournemouth and Astana, United have rebounded in December.

They are unbeaten in five with three wins and two draws.

The month started with a 2-2 disappointing draw at home against Aston Villa.

However, just as the vultures were circling OGS, United pulled out wins against Tottenham, Man City and AZ Alkmaar.

Unfortunately for United though, their momentum was stalled in a 1-1 home draw to Everton last weekend.

Colchester last five games: WDLWD

While Colchester have two wins, two draws and one defeat in their last five games in all competitions, those results aren’t really reflective of the state of the club.

Colchester are a team on the up after six undefeated league matches.

That league run has included three wins and three draws.

In their last two matches, Colchester beat Salford City 1-0 before drawing 2-2 away at Scunthorpe United.
