Manchester United will begin their defence of the Carabao Cup trophy against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag won the League Cup in his first season in charge thanks to a 2-0 win over Newcastle at Wembley in February and the Dutchman will be keen to start the new campaign in the cup competition with a home victory.
United bounced back from a poor run of defeats with a gutsy 1-0 win against Burnley at the weekend and Wednesday night's game against Crystal Palace represents an opportunity for back-to-back victories in quick succession.

Regarding team news for the game, Lisandro Martinez could be absent again after missing the clash at Turf Moor through injury, but Mason Mount might return to the squad after recovering from his hamstring problem.
Harry Maguire was another absentee against Burnley but it's possible he could make his first start of the season.
Our writers have had their say on how United should line up against Palace...
The dilemma United have is in defence as they lack senior and specialist cover at full-back. The more important game against Crystal Palace this week is on Saturday and that has to be considered with the line-up tonight. If Sergio Reguilon is still unwell, then Diogo Dalot should switch to left-back with Victor Lindelof at right-back.
Tom Heaton is not the number two goalie but he is probably the second-best 'keeper at United, though Altay Bayindir will likely start. Harry Maguire might as well play as he is not going to get picked in any of the Premier League or Champions League games.
