Manchester United will be out to avoid a shock when they take on League One outfit Sheffield United at Old Trafford in the evening kickoff later today.
The Red Devils have struggled in cup competitions since Louis Van Gaal’s arrival, losing to both the MK Dons and Middlesbrough in the Capital One cup last season and this.
With echoes of Adidas’ “boring” remarks firmly in his ear, Van Gaal is expected to name a strong side as he bids to avoid a third surprise result in 18 months.
United have not won the world oldest competition since 2004 and two of their current stars, Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick, Premier and Champions League winners, have never lifted the cup.
Rooney in particular will be looking forward to the tie. The England Captain returned to goal-scoring form last weekend as he helped United to a first win in nine games with the winner in a 2-1 victory.
Scoring has been something of a problem for Manchester Utd, with Van Gaal reiterating his claim that he will be looking to strengthen in January.
Van Gaal is also hoping to have Jesse Lingard fit again after a hamstring injury while Phil Jones and Ashley Young will both be assessed after coming off against the Swans.
Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw are all still sidelined through long-term injuries while for the Blades midfielder Matt Done could return to the squad after missing the clash with Peterborough last time out.
The Yorkshire side lost that game 3-2, a result that left them 8th in the table, four points off a play-off place.
Nigel Adkins men have a big game with fifth place Wigan just three day after the tie in Manchester and it remains to be seen if this will impact on the former Reading’s coach selection.
One man keen to make an impression will be Billy Sharp. The 29 year old played two games in the top flight for Southampton before dropping down the divisions but has looked in good shape this season, scoring 11 goals to date.
Manchester United won 2-0 when the sides last met in April 2007 with both Carrick and Rooney getting on the score-sheet.
It could prove to be a sticky encounter for the Red Devils who simply have not been firing in recent weeks. An exit would further put on the pressure on Van Gaal who could only be a defeat from losing his job.
The Dutchman can be positive after recent results in the Premier League and a win against Sheffield Utd would further improve confidence in the dressing room.
