Darren Fletcher is set to start tonight.

United take on Newcastle in the trophy formerly known as the Carling Cup but now known as the Capital One Cup at Old Trafford, in a game that should give Sir Alex the chance to try out some of his younger players. It won’t just be the youngsters on show tonight as veterans Darren Fletcher and Jonny Evans are also expected to start.

With injuries to Antonio Valencia, Nemanja Vidic and the likes of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling still on the treatment table United need to give fringe players a chance to get some much needed first team experience.

The league cup may not seem like the most important trophy United are in but the competition has provided us with some good memories and many a trip to Wembley in the past. You can keep up to date with all the highlights and major incidents by getting involved with our live blog.
