Manchester United and Everton are battling for a place in the last four of the Carabao Cup. Here is how both teams will line up today in their quarter-final clash at Goodison Park.
Manchester United Make Changes
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decided to rotate his Manchester United starting team for today’s game with captain only Harry Maguire and ace midfielder Bruno Fernandes retaining their places from the 6-2 victory over Leeds in the Premier League on Sunday.
Solskjaer has recalled goalkeeper Dean Henderson to replace David de Gea, while there are returns to the starting XI for defenders Axel Tuanzebe and Eric Bailly, as well midfielder Paul Pogba and forwards Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani.
Dutchman Donny van de Beek comes into the midfield, and Jesse Lingard is back on the bench.
For Everton, manager Carlo Ancelotti has made just three changes from the victory over Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday.
Jordan Pickford is overlooked for Robin Olsen in goal, while Seamus Coleman makes a return to the starting line-up following injury. Mason Holgate and Andre Gomes are in the team.

Although making several changes for this game, Solskjaer is still aiming to win trophies.
Solskjaer said: “We want to improve every season and to improve on last year is to get to the final. Of course, when you get to a final, there’s only one thing that matters and that’s lifting the trophy.
“I remember winning my first trophy and towards the end of my career, I think Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic’s first trophy was the League Cup in 2006. It does give something to a team. We are desperate to get our hands on a trophy. These players are desperate to learn how to win.”
