For the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern, holding onto the Carabao Cup this season isn’t particularly important. Their winning of the competition last season was a highlight in an otherwise disappointing domestic campaign, with the Red Devils achieving very little success in the Premier League. That said, with a genuine chance of success in both the Premier League and the Champions League this season, the Carabao Cup is more of an opportunity for fringe players to shine over anything else.
Against Swansea City on Tuesday, it’s expected that Jose Mourinho will use the game to do exactly that. Specifically, he could use the game to give a few young players a chance, and given how little opportunity many of them have had this season, they will undoubtedly look to make the most of that chance.
Man Utd’s academy is brimming with talent that are desperate for the boss give them a chance to shine. With that said, Mourinho should give these 2 Man Utd young players a chance against Swansea tonight – agreed?
