United's Carabao Cup third-round fixture confirmed

Friday 01 September 2023 12:00

Erik ten Hag's Reds will begin our defence of the Carabao Cup with a third-round tie at home to Crystal Palace.

The fixture will be a 20:00 BST kick-off on Tuesday 26 September at Old Trafford, and has been picked to be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK.

This year's round-three draw took place on Wednesday evening, with United set to enter the competition seven months after defeating Newcastle United 2-0 in last season's February final.

Our cup clash will be the first of back-to-back games against Palace at the Theatre of Dreams next month, as the Premier League meeting in M16 is already scheduled for the weekend after the contest (30 September).

It will also sit one midweek on from our opening Champions League group-stage outing of the campaign, for which the draw took place on Thursday.

It's one of five all-Premier League ties in the third round, and we will hope to make a strong start to our defence of the competition, when we play Roy Hodgson's men. They have collected four points from their opening three matches of the league season and overcame Championship outfit Plymouth Argyle 4-2 in the second round on Tuesday night.

United defeated Aston Villa, Burnley, Charlton Athletic, Nottingham Forest and Newcastle United in 2022/23 on the way to lifting the League Cup for the sixth time in our history, securing the first piece of silverware under Ten Hag’s management.
