Predicted Manchester United Starting XI: EFL Cup vs West Ham



It’s a little bit of midweek EFL Cup action as Manchester United take on West Ham United for the second time in four days. Just like in the first meeting, it’ll take place at Old Trafford. In the last time out, Manchester United dominated possession, scoring chances, shots, and shots on goal, but ended up with just a mere draw.

United dropped two points at home that they really should have had.


United Midfielder Ander Herrera says that the Red Devils will be out for revenge against the Hammers. Paul Pogba, who said Sunday that United might end up being that they’re cursed, is suspended due to picking up his fifth booking. How do the odds shape up for this one?

Well, Betfair is giving United 1-4 odds to win, 5-1 for a draw, and 10-1 for a West Ham victory. For the outright EFL Cup winner, United are getting 3-1 odds, while the casino does not have West Ham on the board in this category right now. Betfair offers quotes and also a range of online games, so you can go do a lot more than just wager on the EFL Cup, or football in general, when you visit that website. Now that you know where the bookies see this one potentially going, let’s just move on the presenting The Sports Bank’s Man United starting XI projection:

Marcus Rashford

Anthony Martial       Juan Mata      Jesse Lingard

   Ander Herrera       Michael Carrick

Luke Shaw      Daley Blind    Phil Jones    Antonio Valencia

David de Gea

Other players who could potentially feature in this one include defender Marcos Rojo and midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Yes, we’re really serious about that last one.
