There appeared to be no fresh injury concerns for Erik following the Carabao Cup final, with Marcus Rashford shaking off the knock he sustained against Barcelona to start the match, and play a key role by scoring the second goal.

Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are still long-term absentees, while Anthony Martial was also ruled out the Wembley match.

Ten Hag could offer an update on the Frenchman when he conducts his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

For the visitors, Kurt Zouma and Maxwel Cornet have both recently returned to training and could be involved on Wednesday.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and defender Vladimir Coufal are also both being assessed ahead of the fixture, after being hurt in the win over Nottingham Forest.

Rashford: It's a massive feeling


United's no.10 hopes the Carabao Cup will be the first of an influx of trophies.


It feels like some time since United’s last FA Cup fixture, a 3-1 triumph over Reading at Old Trafford on 28 January.

A Casemiro double and a goal from compatriot Fred were enough to see the Reds into the fifth round.

Our players will no doubt be keen to progress further, and having enjoyed winning silverware on Sunday, in the Carabao Cup final, they will be highly motivated to take another step towards more.
