Luton's Dan Potts, Eunan O'Kane and Brendan Galloway are all expected to miss out through injury. Tom Lockyer could make a return to the side, with former United youngster Ryan Tunnicliffe expected to start in midfield.

United, who won the competition in 2017, will likely make changes from the side that lost to Palace at the weekend.

Dean Henderson could get the nod over David de Gea, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Nemanja Matic could also feature to improve their match fitness.

Summer signing Donny Van de Beek netted United's goal against Palace when he made his debut from the bench and could feature in this tie to get more minutes in his legs.

Luton are currently sitting third in the Championship after winning both of their opening fixtures. The Hatters beat Barnsley and Derby County in the league, while wins against Norwich and Reading in the Carabao Cup have earned Luton their place in the third round.

The Red Devils went to the latter stages of last season's Europa League, meaning their start to the domestic season had been delayed, before their defeat at the hands of Palace.

While United did fall to defeat in their opening Premier League fixture, Solskjaer's side will have their sights firmly set on finding their feet again.

Although the Norwegian manager is expected to field an altered lineup, the squad will be hungry to get back to winning ways.

Luton's fine form should give them confidence, but the Red Devils will likely have too much quality for the Hatters to deal with.

Prediction: Luton Town 1-3 Manchester United
