Swansea v Man Utd: Carabao Cup Fourth Round Preview

Manchester United handed double boost ahead of Carabao Cup clash

Jesse Lingard scores both goals as Manchester United bounce back from disappointment at Huddersfield with a comfortable passage in the EFL Cup against Swansea City.

Manchester United travel to the Liberty Stadium tonight with the hope of banishing their weekend defeat to Huddersfield to the back of their minds.

United doubled their lead shortly before the hour mark, with Lingard grabbing his brace with a brilliant header.

Elsewhere, Bournemouth beat Middlesbrough 3-1, Bristol City put four past Crystal Palace in a 4-1 win and Leicester beat Leeds 3-1.

United boss Jose Mourinho said after victory over Burton in the previous round that they would be better off without this competition on their itinerary, suggesting they would be fresher for Europe.

Shaw's route back into the first-team looked hard before United's win at Swansea but, with Tuanzebe impressing, he's even further behind now.

Wayne Routledge failed to get his shot away after Lindelof hesitated and Daley Blind was nearly left red-faced when his clearing header struck McBurnie and fell a yard wide of the post.

The 22-year-old was tipped to start at the Liberty Stadium but was instead an 87th minute substitute for Anthony Martial.

"Scott McTominay did very well, strong in the midfield".

And just 21 minutes into the game Lingard gave United the lead with a superb flick after Rashford set him up for a one on one with the keeper.

And their plans paid dividends as Lingard again ghosted through the heart of Swansea's defence and clinically headed home Matteo Darmian's superb right-sided cross.

United should have had a third when Nordfeldt could only palm down McTominay's header and Tuanzebe blazed over from close range.

With Spurs on the horizon at the weekend, Jose Mourinho is expected to try to freshen up his side, with key players like David de Gea, Nemanja Matic, Antonio Valencia and Romelu Lukaku expected to be rested.
