Manchester United summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan joins Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial in the starting XI for the League Cup quarter-final with West Ham.

Mkhitaryan featured off the bench in the 1-1 draw with the Hammers in the Premier League on Sunday, while Shaw earns a recall at left-back. Martial also returns to the attack.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is again named on the bench – but pre-match rumours suggest he will feature at some stage.


Jose Mourinho will serve a one-match touchline ban after deciding against contesting an FA charge, with Rui Faria expected to assume dugout duties.

The Portuguese boss took exception to Paul Pogba being booked for diving at the weekend; the world record signing misses out through suspension.
