After meeting last weekend in the Premier League, Manchester United and West Ham face off again on Wednesday at Old Trafford in the EFL Cup. The Red Devils have been the 2-1 winners this weekend and are the favorites here, although the team should use a decent number of bench players for this one. United are one of the favorites to win the trophy in the second tier tournament which concludes with the final on February 22.

Here are the storylines, how you can watch the game and more:

Scenarios

Manchester United : Here’s a good opportunity to give less used players a few minutes, but don’t expect a lot of drop. If Edinson Cavani takes the start, with others like Jesse Lingard getting minutes, then United shouldn’t have much of a problem if the Hammers change their roster in the same way. But if West Ham field one of their strongest XIs, expect Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to have to look to some big names on his bench to come out on top.

West Ham: They get Michail Antonio back, and it will be a big boost if he plays. The Hammers likely deserved a point from their game against United on Sunday and will seek revenge here in a competition that will likely be the Hammers’ best chance of winning a trophy. Expect David Moyes to field several of his best players, knowing that a deep battle will likely see his team fail.
