Mourinho makes nine changes for Derby clash
Jose Mourinho has made wholesale changes for United’s Carabao Cup third round tie at Old Trafford against Derby County.
A completely revamped back five will face the Championship outfit with Sergio Romero replacing David De Gea in goal as the Argentinian make his first United start since the final game of last season, against Watford at Old Trafford in May.
Nemanja Matic is back after suspension and Ander Herrera joins him in the engine room following his injury against Burnley. Juan Mata starts for the first time since Brighton away in August, after coming on as a sub against Wolves.
“I have given a rest to Luke (Shaw), to Paul (Pogba) to Victor (Lindelof), to Valencia and to David (De Gea). I gave a rest to these five players.
"I couldn't give much more. I had to play a very good team.
“Lampard, meanwhile, has named an unchanged line-up from Derby's 3-1 home league win over Brentford at the weekend.
United: Romero; Dalot, Bailly, Jones, Young; Matic, Herrera, Mata, Lingard, Martial, Lukaku. Subs: Grant, Smalling, Fred, Fellaini, Darmian, McTominay, Alexis.
Derby: Carson, Forsyth, Bryson, Keogh, Tomori, Wilson, Johnson, Mount, Bennett, Nugent, Bogle. Subs: Roos, Wisdom, Waghorn, Jozefzoon, Marriott, Huddlestone, Malone.
