MUN vs EVE Dream11 Match Prediction: Manchester United will be having hopes of making it into the semi-final of the Carabao Cup as they welcome Colchester under lights at Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side has been having problems to get maximum points against the lesser teams as they sit back and absorb the pressure. Possession based football has been a problem for United and Colchester might take a note or two from that as they would want to lay deep in defence against the hosts.
Date- Thursday, December 19 | Kick-Off- 1:30 AM (IST) | Venue- Old Trafford
Manchester United – Team News
Players such as Sergio Romero, Brandon Williams, Ashley Young, Juan Mata and Mason Greenwood are likely to be given starts. However, one can expect the likes of Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay and even Marcus Rashford to start. Paul Pogba, Diego Dalot and Marcus Rojo are out due to injury.
Courtney Senior misses out for Colchester due to injury and is a big miss for the visitors. Paris Cowan-Hall is also unlikely to start because of a knock which he sustained recently. Having said that, the head coach, John McGreal will be putting up his best eleven against Manchester United,
MUN (Expected Playing 11)- Romero; Williams, Maguire, Tuanzebe, Young; McTominay, Matic; Rashford, Mata, Pereira; Greenwood
COL (Expected Playing 11)- Gerken; Jackson, Eastman, Prosser, Bramail; Comley, Pell; Nouble, Poku, Harriott; Norris
Mason Greenwood has been one of the finds of the season. The 18-year-old has bagged seven goals from 17 appearances in all competition for Manchester United.
Frank Nouble has been pivotal in the advanced position with three goals and four assists in 20 appearances in League Two this season.
Brandon Williams at wing-back has shown signs of quality for Manchester United. Williams has a goal and a pass accuracy of 83% from 269 minutes in the Premier League.
Luke Norris will be the danger man in attack for Colchester. Norris has six goals and an assist from 18 appearances in League Two.
Manchester United are the clear favourites heading into the game and a result going in favour of Colchester would be considered a massive upset.
