Our football match prediction:
Manchester United play host to Burton Albion at their Old Trafford in round 3 of the League Cup. The Red Devils aim to build on a 4-0 win over Everton, but there is every chance coach Jose Mourinho will mix the squad against the Brewers. Anthony Martial, who scored from the penalty spot in the triumph over Ronald Koeman’s troops, is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up and, no doubt, he is capable of making life difficult for the opposition defenders. Man Utd have been impressive at home ground this term and we predict that they will book their place in the League Cup round 5. Burton Albion are tough to beat at home, but their displays on the road leave a lot to be desired and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Manchester United’s party at Old Trafford. When the two teams met at the “Theatre of Dreams” in the 2005/2006 FA Cup the Red Devils hammered the Brewers 5-0.
