Welcome to Man Utd vs Charlton

Man Utd welcome League One outfit Charlton Athletic to Old Trafford this evening in this EFL Cup quarter-final showdown.

Bruno Fernandes will miss the game tonight due to suspension after picking up two cautions in the tournament already, leaving ten Hag slightly short of midfield options.

Donny van de Beek is still waiting for an update on the knee injury he suffered against Bournemouth.

Jadon Sancho will also be absent as he continues his comeback to full fitness, while centre-back Axel Tuanzebe is still recovering from a long-term issue.

Loan signing Jack Butland is eligible to make his debut, having not played for parent club Crystal Palace in the competition this season.

With Man City lying in wait for their next Premier League game, ten Hag may rotate his squad with Alejandro Garnacho, Anthony Elanga and Fred likely to be handed chances to impress.

Charlton midfielder Sean Clarke missed the last 16 win over Brighton due to suspension but is available this evening, while goalkeeper is absent with a fractured finger.

Fellow shot-stopper Ashley Maynard-Brewer will also need a once-over after missing the win over Lincoln due to concussion protocol, while Diallang Jaiyesimi (hip) and Mandela Egbo (quad) are also still on the treatment table.

Ex-Arsenal youngster Chuks Aneke could potentially make the squad after a hamstring injury, but Jayden Stockley will likely to be relied upon to lead the line this evening.
