Confirmed: Manchester United line-up to play Ipswich

Here is how Manchester United line-up to play Ipswich this evening:

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Young, Schweinsteiger, Mata, Herrera, Fellaini, Pereira, Rooney

Manchester United subs: Romero, Darmian, Jones, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Memphis, Martial

Manchester United welcome Ipswich Town to Old Trafford this evening as manager Louis van Gaal turns his attention from the Premier League to the Capital One Cup.

This competition does not hold the best memories for the United boss, who saw a young side crash out 4-0 to MK Dons last season, and you can rest assured he will not want his team to suffer similar embarrassment a year on against lower league opposition.

That said Ipswich will know they have it in them to pull off a shock having climbed up to fifth in the Championship table this season, accruing 14 points from their first eight matches.

This is the third time United and Ipswich have met in this competition with one win apiece to date, so something has to give later this evening.

It is sure to be an exciting encounter with players from both sides knowing this is a chance to shine and potentially secure more game-time in their respective league campaigns in the months ahead.
