Mun vs Bur
Manchester United play Burnley on Wednesday in Carabao Cup 2022-23 fourth round

Manchester United take on Burnley on Wednesday in EFL Cup 2022/23 fourth round as the season moves ahead. United come into this game as the favourites.

Kick-off : 8:00 PM (Local)

Venue : Old Trafford, Manchester

Manchester United did well to see off Aston Villa in the third round of the ongoing Carabao Cup as they breezed through them 4-2 at home. They now look to fend of the Burnley challenge to enter the quarter-finals.

The Red Devils defence looked fragile in the recent two friendlies where they suffered defeats against Cadiz and the Real Betis. They will aim to be rock solid now as we resume Premier League back after the conclusion of the FIFA World Cup.

Manager Erik ten Hag might go with a 4-2-3-1 system.

On the other hand, Burnley saw off the challenges of Crawley Town & Shrewsbury in the third and second respectively to make it this far. They will now look to challenge for a spot in the quarters.

The Clarets defending have been quiet good in the very recent past as they will hope to be resounding against united in a very important game. Attack wise they have been converting as well and will look to be spot on.

Manager Vincent Kompany will likely use a 4-2-3-1 on Wednesday.

Team news and possible lineups

Scott Twine is injured and won’t be available for Burnley for the midweek game. As Connor Roberts is suspended.

As for The Red Devils, Axel Tuanzebe is out injured. While Diogo Dalot and Jadon Sancho are doubtful.

Manchester United XI : De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Malacia, McTominay, Eriksen, Elanga, Van de Beek, Garnacho, Martial.

Burnley XI : Peacock-Farrell, Taylor, Harwood-Bellis, Beyer, Maatsen, Cullen, Bastien, Manuel, Brownhill, Churlinov, Barnes.


With home advantage to count I think Manchester United will be favourites to progress from this tie.
