The Red Devils have spent much of their World Cup break in a hot-weather training camp in Spain that involved friendly losses to Cádiz and Real Betis.
A place in the cup quarter-final is the prize on offer with the competition already devoid of several big names, including one from Manchester City or Liverpool after their game a day later.
Burnley’s mid-season break ended before United’s and they have won both of their Championship games since they restarted, extending their lead at the top of the table.
Here are all the details…

Jadon Sancho will not be after staying home for Spain’s training camp due to a lack of fitness, with reports on the eve of the match stating that he has yet to return to Manchester.
