EFL Cup: West Ham v Man Utd (A) - Wednesday 22nd September, 19:45

The alderz run is over. I'll chance my arm in the cup and let one of the big boys have the Leeds game.

Not sure how I feel about this one. Normally I want to give the cups a good go, but with the EL a priority and given the opposition, I'd be tempted to play a majority of the B team in this one:

Areola
Fredericks Diop Dawson Masuaku
Noble Kral
Bowen Lanzini Vlasic
Antonio

I'd like to see Oko-Flex at least on the bench and given some minutes. After Yarmolenko's performance today I honestly don't think Oko-Flex can do any worse.

  • Johnathan Moss ref for the game..
    Seems like never a dull moment when he’s around!!!

  • Because we are in Europe think we can let this one go .
  • This for me is just about giving squad players pitch time.

    Areola
    Fredricks Diop, Dawson Masauko

    Chesters is a midfielder I think.

    Oko-Flex has been playing through the middle for the U23s since Odubeko's move, so I think he's more likely to play there than Chesters.
  • Dan Chesters has played CF...

    ...against Norwich U18s, January 2019

    He played on the right side of midfield last season and so far this season

    Oko Flex is playing LW, according to whufc.com since Odubeko went on loan our U23 CF is 18yo Kamarai Swyer


  • Don't care about this cup at all, just gotta give lads some minutes

    Areola
    Diop Dawson Baptiste (or Alese)
    Fredericks Kral Noble Masuaku
    Vlasic Yarmolenko Lanzini
  • I agree this is the least important competition, and I'd expect to see some rotation, but I am not a fan of throwing a competition by sticking anyone out there.

    Areola; Fredericks Zouma Diop Masuaku; Kral Noble; Vlasic Benrahma Fornals; Antonio
  • I think we have enough strong squad players now that they have to be given time in this. It’s not really a choice between first team and kids anymore. I think it might be worth having a couple of first framers though, because if we can extend a run then it’s more time for the squad players. Maybe Zouma could play this one.
  • As long as Antonio doesnt play I dont mind. I dont see any point in not keeping him fresh for Leeds and Europe the Thursday after

    Was supposed to be going to this but there’s been mess up on the ticket front so it’s not happening now.
    I agree we need to rotate obviously,but I’d like to think we could have a real go at this cup.
  • Not sure Noble will be fit for this one ,Looked pretty done in after the game yesterday =)
  • Solskjaer confirms on Man U website that Lingard will play on Wednesday.
  • Solskjaer confirms on Man U website that Lingard will play on Wednesday.

    Isn’t that just something to look forward to 😖
  • Me thinks the lingard loan was a ploy so he could gain some inside information on how we play and where are our weak spots. Sneaky.
  • Moyes: Jesse, why are you always taking notes?
    Lingard.: I'm a spy
    Moyes: So why are you covered in Polos?
    Lingard: It's Christmas. I'm a mint spy
