Manchester United will be bidding to progress to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup when we take on Charlton Athletic at Old Trafford on Tuesday (20:00 GMT).

Having advanced into the fourth round of the FA Cup against Everton on Friday, Erik ten Hag's side will be keen to continue our recent hot streak in M16 following the completion of the World Cup.

Seeing off both Aston Villa and Burnley so far in the competition, United will be hoping to reach the last four of the tournament for the first time since the 20/21 season.

Early team news for Charlton tie


Bruno Fernandes will be among United's absentees for Tuesday's Carabao Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford.


Kick-off is at 20:00 GMT and a limited number of tickets remain available here. The match will not be shown live on TV for fans in the UK. 

Our MUTV pre-match show will begin at 18:55, bringing you pre-match build-up, team news, post-match reaction and interviews. In addition to this, you will also be able to follow the action as it happens in the United App and on, with live radio commentary available for the full 90 minutes.

Short match highlights of the action will be viewable from 01:00 the following morning, with extended versions to follow in due course.


Bruno Fernandes is suspended having accumulated a yellow card in each of our two matches so far in the competition.

Donny van de Beek sustained an injury against Bournemouth on 3 January that could leave him sidelined for an extended period of time, while Jadon Sancho has returned to Carrington as he steps up his return, beginning with individual training. 

Goalkeeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer missed the recent win over Lincoln City due to the implementation of concussion protocol following a training incident that saw him take a ball to the face, while fellow stopper Joe Wollacott isn't expected to return to training for another couple of weeks yet having just had the wire removed from his fractured finger. 

Defender Eoghan O’Connell entered the field for the first time since the end of October against Lincoln, but full-back Mandela Egbo will miss the upcoming game with a quad injury. The club are continuing to assess Chuks Aneke, who limped out of their warm up before a game against Portsmouth at the turn of the year, feeling his hamstring. Conor McGrandles and Terell Thomas have also stepped up their comebacks after featuring for Charlton's Under-21s against Hull City during the week.

Our clash with the Addicks on Tuesday evening will mark the 60th meeting between the two teams, with a place in the last four up for grabs at the Theatre of Dreams.

Last going head-to-head back in February 2007, United emerged 2-0 winners on that occasion, with goals from Ji-sung Park and Darren Fletcher ensuring victory.

In fact, the Reds have a strong record to protect against the League One outfit, having lost just one of our last 19 games against this week's opponent.

10 February 2007: United's good form continued with a routine win over Charlton, in our last league meeting....


Residing just inside the top half of the third tier at present, Dean Holden's side last outing was a 2-1 win against Lincoln City on Saturday at The Valley, thanks to goals from Scott Fraser and Corey Blackett-Taylor.

Holden, a boyhood United fan, was appointed in December and has overseen just one league defeat in four matches since taking over from Ben Garner in the Addicks' dugout. 

Having spent the last five of the past six seasons in League One, Charlton will be bidding to cause something of an upset and will be backed by a strong following contingent from the capital on Tuesday.
