Carabao Cup: Three Manchester United Stars Who Are Unlikely To Feature Against West Ham

Manchester United's Carabao Cup run will begin on Wednesday evening against West Ham United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aiming to win silverware for the first time as United manager. However, the Norwegian is set to be missing three players for the third-round encounter.

In his tenure at United, Solskjaer has yet to win a trophy, despite coming agonizingly close last year against Villarreal in the Europa League final, which the Red Devils lost on penalties in May.

United were unlucky not to win, but they were forced to pay for a lack of cutting edge, which allowed the Spanish team to take home the title.

Since then, however, with new additions Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane, there has been a greater expectation to win trophies at Old Trafford than ever before.

With a reasonably full team for the match against West Ham, the Carabao Cup may be the competition that finally ends United's trophy drought.

Although there are a few of striking absentees for the visit of the Hammers, Ronaldo and the rest of their attacking contingent have started the season unblemished.

Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford's shoulder injury has kept him out of every game this season, and he will be out again on Wednesday night. After the European Championship, the English forward underwent surgery, and the Manchester-born attacker is still out.

Amad Diallo

Amad, on the other hand, is still injured and will miss the match.

Due to a failed loan transfer to Feyenoord in the Netherlands, Amad had to undergo surgery in Manchester rather than Rotterdam, and the Ivorian is expected to move in the winter window.

Alex Telles

Finally, Alex Telles will miss the game due to an ankle injury.Due to Luke Shaw's form, the Brazilian would be hard pushed to break into the first team, but given that it was a cup tournament, he would very certainly have started.

In an undoubtedly difficult match, the Red Devils face West Ham.
