Manchester United play West Ham in the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Following on from their dramatic 2-1 victory at the London Stadium on Sunday thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jesse Lingard, as well as David de Gea's last-minute penalty save, the two sides will face off again.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already confirmed that Lingard will start the game.

"He’ll play, of course, on Wednesday because we will make a few changes," he said. "It was quite clear that he wants to fight for his place and want to be a part of a United team he feels is going places. For me, I can’t speak for Jesse now, but he is really contributing."

Regarding any more team news hints for this Carabao Cup fixture, it was confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that Anthony Elanga and Alex Telles will be named in United's squad to play West Ham - the latter has now successfully recovered from an ankle injury.

Manchester United announce plans for new facilities at Carrington

Manchester United intend to install floodlights and a new all-seater stand at their Carrington training complex as part of a much-needed facilities upgrade.

United's owners, the Glazers, have come under mounting pressure to invest in the training ground and Old Trafford, which have both lacked significant renovation over the last 15 years.

Following the collapse of the Super League, United co-chairman Joel Glazer vowed to supporters he would sanction overdue investment in the stadium and training complex.

United said planning applications have already been submitted for new floodlights and a stand that would house 500 spectators, a measure which would possibly end United junior teams' days of playing at Leigh Sports Village.
