Manchester United will take on Ipswich Town in the third round of the Capital One Cup tie at Old Trafford on Wednesday 23 September.

Where to watch

Kick-off is set for 8pm BST. There is no live coverage of this match in the UK.


United come into this game after a narrow 3-2 victory over Southampton at St Mary's Stadium. The Saints took a lead very early in the game, which was cancelled before the break by deadline day signing Anthony Martial.

The French international gave Louis van Gaal's side a lead in the second half, before a brilliant team play from United saw Juan Mata extend United's lead. Southampton scored a late goal, but brilliant goalkeeping from David de Gea made sure the Red Devils sealed three points.

Van Gaal saw his side crash out of the Capital One Cup in the second round after a crushing 4-0 defeat at the hands of MK Dons last season. He will be looking for a positive start when his side face the second division side this year.

Meanwhile, Ipswich defeated Doncaster Rovers in the second round in extra time. Mick McCarthy will be looking for an upset when his side face United in their own backyard. Should they manage to win, it will be Van Gaal's second defeat in the Capital One Cup in the two matches he has managed his side in the competition.

What managers say

Louis van Gaal: "With that amount of passes you control the game but we are not playing a possession game only to control the match. I have said to the players that gaps in the opponents organisation exist."

Mick McCarthy: "I've not been preoccupied by it at all. The league games are far more important to me. This is the most important game for us now, because it's the next one. I never look too far in front of myself though. We mentioned it on the long drive back from Doncaster, but we haven't given it a second thought since. I certainly haven't."
