Resoundingly beaten in the Premier League only a few days ago, Erik ten Hag’s side are now looking to reverse that loss by progressing through to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
Still, Unai Emery is a man renowned for his ability to make the most of cup competitions and certainly proved his side had the quality to trouble United with that dream start to his new job on Sunday.
With more time to work with his new players, it’ll be fascinating to see whether or not he truly has Ten Hag’s number. With United not in the Premier League title race, they need to make the most of the further avenues of success cup competitions offer.
Here’s how to watch all the action tonight.
