Team News

Both sides have shown faith in youth this season in the Premier League, and this tie should offer excellent opportunity to get another look at those below the players starting to make mark on the first team.

Chelsea could give another chance to youngsters Marc Guehi at the back and Billy Gilmour in midfield, while the elevation of midfield James Garner and left-back Brandon Williams (man of the match in the Europa League last week) to the Manchester United first team suggests they may be in line for a start.

Chelsea XI: Willy Caballero; Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Marc Guehi, Emerson; Billy Gilmour, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic; Callum Hudson-Odoi, Olivier Giroud, Pedro.

Manchester United XI: Sergio Romero; Phil Jones, Harry Maguire, Marcos Rojo; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, James Garner, Scott McTominay, Brandon Williams; Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford.
