Manchester United kick off the defence of their League Cup crown at home to Burton Albion. After such a fine start to the Premier League campaign and with a Champions League win tucked under their belts, the Red Devils will be keen to keep the momentum going at home to the Championship side. With so many options at his disposal, expect United boss Jose Mourinho to make a raft of changes to the side that beat Everton 4-0 at the weekend.
One of the biggest hopes and dreams of many football players around England is to play at Old Trafford, the aptly-named Theatre of Dreams and the home of Manchester United. On Wednesday, the players of Championship side Burton Albion will get to do just that — but the dreams may not last long given that they’ll be facing a white-hot United side in the third round of the League Cup.
Burton Albion are in their second-ever season in the Championship after a rapid rise from non-League football over the last decade, and as such they obviously don’t have the highest hopes of hanging with Manchester United in terms of competitive quality — but this isn’t the first time they’ve faced United in a competitive fixture, and if they can find a way to steal any kind of result, they’ll have at least matched what many Burton Albion fans consider the most important result in the history of the club.
