Tonight Manchester United start off their defence of the Carling Cup with a trip to Glanford Park to play Championship side Scunthorpe United. The two sides have never met each other in a competitive match.

The last time Man United were knocked out of the Carling Cup was back in 2007 when Coventry beat United 2-0 at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson will ring the changes from the side who beat Liverpool 3-2 last Sunday. The manager has already confirmed that Bebe will make his debut and Michael Owen will start. Gary Neville, Darron Gibson, Anderson and Javier Hernandez are all likely to start.

Man United squad: Kuszczak, Amos, Neville, Rafael, Brown, Ferdinand, Smalling, De Laet, Dudgeon, Anderson, Park, Obertan, Gibson, W.Keane, C.Evans, Eikrem, Owen, Hernandez, Macheda and Bebe.

Scunthorpe caretaker manager Ian Baraclough has no new injury worries, Garry Thompson is definitely out and Jim McNulty is struggling with an ankle injury. Defender Rob Jones will face a fitness assessment ahead of the game.

Referee is Mike Dean, he hasn’t taken charge of a Man United match so far this season but last season he refereed four games involving United. The first was the 2-1 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford, 4-1 win against Portsmouth, 2-1 loss to Man City in the League Cup and the vital 2-1 loss to Chelsea in the Premier League.

One Response so far.

    Id see PIG-Rafa-Smalling-Ferdinand-Fabio-Obertan-Eikrem-Gibson-Anderson-Macheda-Hernandez. Id like to see how Ando performs om the leftside, perhsps a role on the wing could fill some of the space Antonio left behind. I would also like to see both Evans,Keane and Bebe as subs
