Predicted Manchester United line-up to play Ipswich: Varela and Lingard to start

Old Trafford 3

Here is how we predict Manchester United and Ipswich Town will line up this week:

To be played on Wednesday 23rd September 2015 at 19:00. Venue: Old Trafford,

Odds: Man Utd 4/11, Draw 15/4, Ipswich 7/1

Manchester United welcome Championship side Ipswich Town to Old Trafford later this week for their Capital One Cup third round encounter.

United have won back-to-back league games against Liverpool and Southampton, scoring six goals in the process, while Ipswich have taken four points from their last two matches, drawing with Birmingham City and defeating Leeds United.

This should make for an interesting encounter with Ipswich likely to play their strongest possible side but United almost certain to field some of their fringe stars and younger players.

Expect the likes of James Wilson, Andreas Pereira and Paddy McNair to all start, along with second-choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who has slipped down the pecking order following David de Gea’s recent contract renewal.

Ipswich will know they have it all to do at Old Trafford but United crashed out of this competition 4-0 to MK Dons last season so they will know a shock result is not impossible as manager Louis van Gaal focuses on other competitions.
