Carabao Cup: 3 Man Utd youngsters to watch out against West Ham
The Carabao Cup’s early rounds are frequently used by Premier League clubs to give inexperienced players a chance.
West Ham will be looking to avenge their Saturday loss and might welcome back top scorer Michail Antonio
Finally, United’s under-21 team plays Bradford City in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night.
Below are the young star Ole could feature in the game.
Anthony Elanga is the player with the best chance of making the team.
Elanga was very impressive in preseason before suffering an injury and then scoring for Sweden’s under-21 team during the international break.
He didn’t participate in the EFL Trophy match the week before, therefore he could get an opportunity in the Carabao Cup this week.
He warmed up over the weekend with his first under-23 start of the season, winning and scoring a penalty.
This season, Hannibal has been working with the first team squad and is progressing well.
After receiving two yellow cards in the last EFL Trophy game, the Tunisia international was sent off
And it is believed – but not confirmed – that he will be banned for the Bradford fixture.
This offers him a chance to play in the first team squad in midweek, if only as a substitute against the Hammers.
If Solskjaer rotates the side, Nemanja Matic and Donny van de Beek will be the starting options.
If the manager decides to save Matic for the weekend’s match against Villa and the upcoming Champions League fixture, Hannibal is the fresher alternative.
Shola Shoretire is in top form. In his previous three games, the teenager has scored two goals and added two assists to his season total.
Last Friday, Shoretire trained with the first team, implying that Solskjaer was overlooking him.
Shoretire’s issue is that the position he plays in is congested, with Lingard set to start and Juan Mata also in the mix.
