Chelsea vs Man United: Red Devils confirm 18-man squad for Carabao Cup clash

- Chelsea vs Man United will see the Blues seek revenge over the Red Devils

- United humiliated Chelsea 4-0 in their Premier League opener earlier in the season

- Brandon Williams and James Garner are among the players who have made the London trip

Manchester United have confirmed their 18-man travelling squad that will face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, October 30.

United will be looking to build on their 4-0 ruthless win over their Premier League rivals earned on the opening weekend of the season.

However, it will not be an easy job considering Chelsea's resurgent form that has seen them collect seven victories on the bounce in all competitions.

Youngsters Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori have already cemented their places in the first-team, firing the Blues to fourth in the league.

Ahead of the clash, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called up a strong squad to take on the Blues, with academy graduates Brandon Williams and James Garner part of the travelling party.

The pair could make their first domestic starts against Chelsea after featuring in the Europa League on two occasions.

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford, who scored his 50th United goal against Norwich over the weekend, was also part of the London trip alongside Harry Maguire and Jesse Lingard.

Paul Pogba, who has missed eight of United's last 10 matches was however not part of the squad as he remains sidelined with an ankle problem.

Brazilian star Fred could therefore be drawn in once again to fill the Frenchman's void in a midfield partnership that could include Scott McTominay.

United's 18-man travelling squad:

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero, Lee Grant

Defenders: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Brandon Williams

Midfielders: Fred, James Garner, Scott McTominay, Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard

Forwards: Daniel James, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial.
