The two sides meet again just a few days after their thrilling Premier League clash but there is likely to be plenty of changes and a place in the fourth round at stake
It’s quite remarkable how often two teams are thrown against each other in cup action so soon after facing off in the Premier League.
After Sunday’s cracking fixture at the London Stadium, West Ham now make the trip to Old Trafford, but this time in the Carabao Cup.
United got a lucky escape after Mark Noble spurned his chance of a late equaliser, with his tame penalty effort saved by David de Gea in stoppage time.
While Luke Shaw was penalised for a handball for the spot kick, Cristiano Ronaldo was denied three appeals during the clash.
With the Carabao Cup third round ties set to go straight to penalties after 90 minutes if there is no clear winner, it could be 12 yards which decides it again between the sides.
Here’s all you need to know about the game.
What channel is the match on?
The game will be shown live on SkySports Football on Wednesday September 22, with kick-off scheduled for 7:45pm.
Subscribers will also be able to stream the fixture via the Sky Go app.
Viewers can also catch the Carabao Cup fourth round draw live after the game, albeit from a very random location.
Ex-Man City Micah Richards and former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp are the men in charge of selecting the balls for the next round, which will take place in the humble surroundings of the Potton Bowls Club in Bedfordshire.
United are expected to ring the changes after a busy week of Champions League and Premier League action.
Dean Henderson could well be back in action after a period working with the under-23s, having shaken off a bout of Covid.
There could also be chances for some of United’s other fringe men, including Diogo Dalot and Donny van de Beek.
Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani may feature having been given scraps of game time thus far amidst Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival.
And Jadon Sancho could be handed minutes after being left out of the starting XI at the weekend.
David Moyes will also be keen for his players to get some rest where possible after European action last week.
Sunday’s fall guy Noble could be handed a start after only coming on as a substitute to take his misfortunate penalty.
The likes of Craig Dawson, Andriy Yarmolenko and Manuel Lanzini could get the nod too, among others.
Unsurprisingly, even with expected changes, United are still deemed favourites for the meeting with Grosvenor Sports pricing the Red Devils at 4/9, with the Hammers clearly viewed as outsiders by bookies at 11/2.
Meanwhile the draw is at odds of 17/5.
Man United 4/9
West Ham 11/2
