by Harry Robinson

Manchestester United starting XI vs Swansea City: Romero; Blind, Lindelof, Smalling (C), Darmian, Tuanzebe, McTominay, Herrera, Lingard, Rashford, Martial.

Jose Mourinho has rested a number of key players as he picks a youthful Man United side to face Swansea City in the EFL Cup.

The Portugueuse boss has rested Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku and Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic after busy periods for both players.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial start together up front, as they did in the EFL Cup last round, a 4-1 victory against Burton Albion.

Scott McTominay makes his second ever start for the club, while Axel Tuanzebe makes his first appearance since the last game of the Premier League season against Crystal Palace.

The Reds may be going with a back three of Victor Linelof, Chris Smalling and one of Daley Blind, Axel Tuanzebe and Matteo Darmian, with all three of the latter players having the ability to play at wing-back in Mourinho’s eyes.

However, Tuanzebe may be playing in central midfield in front of a back four.
