Manchester United - Charlton Prediction and Analysis

Manchester United will welcome Charlton Athletic to Old Trafford for the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup on January 10.

Home manager Erik ten Haag is unlikely to make major changes to his starting line-up.

Given that his team has been doing brilliantly lately.

Unless there are injuries or a player unavailable.

A victory today will send his team to the 1/2-finals of the tournament.

Given this fact, the Dutchman has to choose his best outfield players .

Jack Butland, who arrived on loan from Palace days ago, is likely to be preferred to David de Gea under the frame.

After goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, who kept for Man Utd in the Carabao Cup this season, returned to Newcastle.

The Red Devils have recorded 5 consecutive victories since the resumption of the season after the World Cup.

In those they conceded just one goal (in the 3-1 success over Everton in the FA Cup last Friday).

And in each of their previous 3 home games they inevitably scored 3 goals .

I think it is quite possible that they will do it today.

Even the odds of 4+ would not be overwhelming for the home team's forwards against Charlton, who are in poor form.

Manchester United - stats and info

Manchester United reached the quarter-finals of the League Cup after impressive victories over Aston Villa (4-2) and Burnley (2-0).

They are now favorites to beat League One side Charlton in this fixture.

But apart from that, they are also the main favorite to win the trophy in this tournament.

After a number of big teams including Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool have already been eliminated from the Carabao Cup.

In this regard, manager Erik ten Haag is likely to take the competition seriously and field an optimal squad today.

Because it represents the best chance of ending Old Trafford's trophyless drought.

The Red Devils are currently in good form in the Premier League.

They broke into the Champions League zone for the first time this season. And they are just 4 points behind second placed Man City.

Manchester United have also reached the round of 16 of the Europa League, where they have a tough encounter with Barcelona.

Charlton Athletic - statistics and info

Charlton are in their third season in League One. But there hasn't been much joy for their fans since then.

The London side are in 12th place in this league at the moment after a run of 7 games without a win at the end of 2022.

However, they cannot be underestimated.

After eliminating Premier League powerhouse Brighton on penalties in the fourth round of the League Cup.

Charlton boss Anthony Hayes started with a 5-4-1 formation to shut down the Seagulls in that game. And he managed to do it.

As regular time ended goalless – 0-0. After which his team won on penalties.

It is likely that he will bet on the same performers and a similar scheme against Man United.

Whether that tactic will work again is another question.
