Man Utd will begin their League Cup defence against Crystal Palace

Manchester United will return to Carabao Cup action for the first time since their 2-0 triumph over Newcastle United in last year’s final at Wembley Stadium. The Red Devils are hoping to win back-to-back titles in the competition for the first time since 2010 when they were managed by club icon Sir Alex Ferguson.

The six-time winners have been paired against fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace in the third round of the tournament. The Eagles have never previously tasted success in the Carabao Cup but they have been beaten in the semi-final on three occasions in their history.
