Manchester United v Ipswich Town Tips – Red Devils to step up pursuit of silverware
Manchester United can make their presence felt in this season's Capital One Cup by averting a possible scalp by Ipswich Town on Wednesday evening.
September 22nd, 2015
Manchester United’s last domestic cup success was in this very tournament five seasons ago and boss Louis van Gaal will be eager to repeat this feat this term.
United sit second in the Premier League table following two back-to-back wins, the side appearing to have been somewhat galvanised by the arrival of striker Anthony Martial, the 19-year-old scoring three goals in his two Premier League matches since his £36million move. Saying that, Van Gaal will likely ring the changes for this midweek clash, James Wilson a possibility up front as Martial and Rooney are rested for the clash.
Ipswich Town head into this match in high spirits following an impressive start to the season in which they have clinched 14 points. Boss Mick McCarthy is certainly no stranger to these big occasions and he will be fielding a strong side as he bids to pull off a huge upset at Old Trafford tomorrow night.
Indeed, the Tractor Boys will be confident that they have what it takes to cause the hosts a few problems in this match and given that the Red Devils will be starting some of their fringe players, Ipswich could at least get themselves onto the scoresheet.
Manchester United will have their big-guns at the ready however and will have the quality required to move them into the last sixteen of the competition in a match which looks set to produce plenty of goals.
