Manchester United XI vs Newcastle: Confirmed team news, predicted lineup, injury latest for Carabao Cup today

Manchester United XI vs Newcastle confirmed team news, predicted line-up, and injury news for Carabao Cup tonight.

Manchester United will host the Magpies at Old Trafford in a rematch of last season’s final, in which United prevented Newcastle from ending their long trophy drought, and manager Erik ten Hag will be hoping to get Casemiro back in midfield tonight.

Casemiro, who scored at last season’s Carabao Cup final match against Newcastle United, sustained an injury while on international duty with Brazil earlier this month, which has kept him out of recent matches, including the derby defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

The former Real Madrid player is set to start as captain in tonight’s fixture, according to reports.

Coming from a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Premier League Champions and sworn rivals Manchester City, the Red Devils will be hoping to avoid a defeat on the night as they aim to defend the Carabao Cup title.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has returned to first-team training, but this match is likely to come too soon for him.

Raphael Varane and Sergio Reguilon, were both on the bench against City and might potentially move into the starting lineup to improve the options at the back.

There will almost certainly be changes in the front areas, with Alejandro Garnacho and Antony potentially getting chances out wide, while Anthony Martial will aim to lead the line if Ten Hag decides to rest Rasmus Hojlund. Mason Mount and Hannibal Mejbri might both come into the midfield like they did against Crystal Palace in the third round.

Kobbie Mainoo is back in the squad and should play, but he may have to settle for a bench spot as he looks to earn his first minutes of the season.

Predicted Man United XI: Onana; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Reguilon; Amrabat, Casemiro, Mount; Antony, Martial, Garnacho

Newcastle United XI: M. Dubravka; Livramento, Dummett, Krafth, Hall; Targett, Willock, Longstaff; Joelinton, Gordon, M. Ritchie

Time and date: 9:15 pm (GMT +1) Wednesday, November 1, 2023

Venue: Old Trafford
