Carabao Cup trophy

Date confirmed for Carabao Cup tie

Manchester United will face Rochdale at Old Trafford in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday 25 September.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds have been handed a home draw against the League One side, who knocked Carlisle United out in round two, to reach this stage for the first time since 2011.

The two clubs have only met once in our history, with United winning 2-0 in an FA Cup tie back in 1986, thanks to goals from Mark Hughes and Frank Stapleton.
