Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Swansea City (League Cup)



Manchester United continue the defense of their League Cup title tomorrow night with a visit to Swansea City in this round of 16 clash. Known as the EFL Cup last season, it’s been re-branded the Carabao Cup this year, and who knows what name it will have next season.

Fresh off the shocking and disgraceful loss to Huddersfield Town on Saturday, United have very little time to ruminate on it. They welcome Tottenham Hotspur, who just leap-frogged them in the standings, to Old Trafford on Saturday.
