Team for Man Utd League Cup
Of course, Moyes will say that we're taking this competition seriously, but what that means in terms of team selection is anyone's guess. Man U will presumably put out a second-string side, but that's not difficult with the squad they've got.

I'm expecting a lot of changes, but not to the extent of playing youngsters like Okoflex, though one or two might come off the bench. Or does he populate the bench with heavyweights in case they are needed? What about Antonio? Does he get a game here or will he be saved for the next PL game?

Surely it's time to give debuts to Areola and Kral. Starts expected for all the squad players that aren't usually in the starting lineup. Another start for Vlasic to help to get him up to speed.

Areola
Fredericks Dawson Diop Johnson
Noble Kral Lanzini
Yarmolenko Vlasic Masuaku

Subs: Randolph, Coufal, Longelo, Zouma, Soucek, Benrahma, Okoflex, Fornals, Antonio.

Am I missing something or Antonio not even in the squad?

Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Almost called it right. Just Bowen for Vlasic.

Would expect this but Matic and Telles in for Mctominay and AWB

Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Taking the trenches / war metaphor a little further is Yarmalenko is akin to Sergeant Wilson in Dads Army with his work rate, level of alertness and general attitude.

Arfur would be the equivalent of Jonesy ( when he is defending inside his own box with shouts of "dont panic!!" as he does a drag back and Cryuff turns before giving it away ) Lanzini ? He tries hard to get stuck in but is as lightweight as Godfrey in the tackle.

Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Leroy. Bit harsh on Lanzini. He was getting well stuck in against Zagreb. Arthur doesn't lack effort just a brain.

Agree on Yarma. He's fucking ball shy.

Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Mirror are predicting this line up for Man Utd:

Heaton; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Dalot; McTominay, Van de Beek; Sancho, Lingard, Mata; Martial.

Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Fuck me, Yarmolenko, Lanzini & Masuaka, you would not want them in the trenches alongside you would you

I disagree. Always a lot of top clubs around in the later stages of this competion. FA Cup is much easier. I also recon we've a good chance in the Europa League or Conference if we drop out.

With the thin squad and all these mid-week matches if there's one game to throw it's this game.

pdbis 2:48 Wed Sep 22
Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
He will probably go with 3 goalkeepers on the bench. Roll on Saturday and hopefully 3 points.

I'd largely agree with that team.

I might put oko flex rather than lazy cunt yarmalenko.

And have Antonio, fabianski and soucek on the bench. I don't want to see Randolph even on the bench.

Glenn Rodent 2:06 Wed Sep 22
Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
This is a game where I would rest key players (ones that have played in the Euro's and players like Antonio who we can't afford to lose through injury or burn out).

The Premier League and Europa League are the prioritiy competitons for me.

For this competiion we should use the squad and also give younger players some experience of being amongst the first team

Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Id like to see us have a proper go in this as the reality is it's our best chance of winning something, and it gets you into Europe. Look how happy Man City have been winning this recently. Think Ole will take it seriously, as he needs a trophy.

Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Leeds only dropped four players last night. Given their injury problems I'd have expected they'd just play the kids

Never Say Nevers Again.

pdbis 12:24 Wed Sep 22
Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
I take it Nevers is injured again as he hasn't played the last couple of u23 games.

master 12:00 Wed Sep 22
Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Leeds taken all the way to penalties. Not played a full first team unfortunately, but should still be tired.

We ought to rest players for the weekend.

Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
Agree with the exile.... Antonio needs to be kept match fit. I'd give him 45 mins and then bring Vlasic on for second half.

Arelo
Fredericks Dawson Diop Johnson
Kral Noble
Bowen Lanzini Masuaku
Antonio / Vlasic

Maybe a bit mental.
But not as mental as playing Yarmolenko.
Okoflex will not start as he played last night

Mex Martillo 9:46 Tue Sep 21

Is that Ben Johnson in attack?
That’s just mental when we have young forwards and Yarmolenko.

daveyg 9:35 Tue Sep 21
Re: Team for Man Utd League Cup
I'm going for a bit of something out there.
Moyes is totally pissed off with Yarmolenko and won't risk Antonio.

Areloa

Fredericks
Diop
Dawson
Masuaku

Noble
Lanzini
Kral

Vlasic
Johnson
Bowen

Vlasic won't play more than 70 min again. Moyes slowly giving him games rather just minutes.
