Jose Mourinho Questions Carabao Cup After Manchester United vs. Burton Albion

As one might expect, Jose Mourinho is set to make several changes for Manchester United's Carabao Cup encounter against Burton Albion.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has chose to rest four key players for Wednesday night's Carabao Cup (League Cup) fixture against lower league Burton Albion at Old Trafford.

Manchester United's Ander Herrera says "favourites" Manchester City face intense pressure to win the Premier League after their summer spending spree and trophyless campaign last season.

"Maybe we would be fresher for European competitions, for example".

"But we have this competition, we have to respect it, we have to respect the sponsors, we have to respect the opponents, we have to respect the professionalism of all of us trying to do the best".

"So we just want to win it, and while the result was open we did it in a strong way".

The Red Devils made light work of their Championship opponents, Marcus Rashford's brace and a deflected strike from Jesse Lingard putting them three goals to the good before half-time.

Much-changed Arsenal dominated their clash with League One Doncaster but could only muster a 1-0 victory despite having 27 attempts at goal.

"That's a team, that's a squad, we can only play with 11 guys".

Juan Mata was next to threaten, forcing Connor Ripley into action after nice play involving Blind and Martial.

The Portuguese manager, who has shown tremendous faith in the midfielder since taking over at Old Trafford, wants the Belgian to sign a new deal with Manchester United to extend his stay.

For Burton, Luke Varney is among the starters and he leads the attack for the away team.

The mood among the squad is good with United still unbeaten in all competitions this season - even though the goal Burton scored was the first they have conceded at Old Trafford this season. "I was concerned, they looked risky", Wenger said.

Chelsea's loss has certainly been Manchester United's gain this season, as Matic looks to have solved all the problems Mourinho's men have had for a few seasons now, primarily the lack of a disciplined defensive presence in midfield.
