Luton boss Nathan Jones is likely to rotate his side as they welcome Manchester United to Kenilworth Road for their Carabao Cup third-round clash.

The Hatters have won all four of their fixtures so far this season, with Jones making plenty of changes for the cup victories against Norwich and Reading.

Midfielder Glen Rea is in contention to feature despite coming off at half-time in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship win over Derby after complaining of light-headedness.

Former United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe could also return to the side having not made the bench at the weekend.

Dean Henderson could make his United debut with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer vowing to make changes on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old academy product signed a new and improved deal until 2025 after returning from two highly-successful loan stints at Sheffield United.

Solskjaer will rotate and is looking to build sharpness after a poor 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace in Saturday’s Premier League opener.

Fred, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly and Henderson were unused substitutes against the Eagles, with Donny van de Beek, Odion Ighalo and Mason Greenwood coming off the bench. Jesse Lingard was conspicuous by his absence from the squad, while Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe remain sidelined.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer led the Red Devils of the semi-finals of this competition last term, and they nearly made it to Wembley after a spirited second-leg comeback against eventual champions Man City in the semi, and the Norwegian may take this competition seriously as he spies a route to silverware – after three trophyless years (the longest run since the late 1980s), adding a cup this season will be high on the priority list. 

Manchester United looked to have been in stellar form in the latter half of last season, picking up more points in the Premier League than any other side after the signing of Bruno Fernandes in January, but their momentum appears to have been stunted over the summer, losing both the FA Cup and Europa League semi-finals and returning after a shortened break with a 3-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, a scoreline that was representative of the balance of play.

Luton, meanwhile, were one of the Championship’s most in-form sides after the coronavirus hiatus, losing just twice from nine post-lockdown outings in the summer as returning coach Nathan Jones steered them clear of relegation. 

They’ve also returned in fine fettle, knocking fellow Championship sides Norwich (3-1) and Reading (0-1) in the first two rounds of this competition, while taking six points from six available in their league campaign, beating Barnsley and Derby, 2-1 at the weekend following Jordan Clarke’s 87th-minute winner. 

In spite that discrepancy in form, the superior resources and pedigree of Manchester United see them as strong favourites here at Kenilworth Road, priced with Paddy Power at just 1/4 for the victory in 90 minutes, 9/2 for the draw and a massive 9/1 for the hosts to make it five wins from five competitive outings so far this season. 

We recommend backing Mason Greenwood to score first here, which has boosted odds of 5/1 as part of Paddy Power’s Power Price promotion. The young England international is expected to come in here, having only featured off the bench at the weekend, and was in prolific form last term with 17 goals in all competitions.
