Winners of this competition last year, the perssure is already on United.
It’s been a torrid start to the season for Erik ten Hag & Co. as injuries and poor performances as three wins and there defeats leave United well off the early pace.
Palace, meanwhile, have produced a similarly inconsistent start and will hope to reach the League Cup fourth round for the first time in five seasons.

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace prediction
Neither team has really got going so far this season so I’m not expecting a cup classic at the Theatre of Dreams.
Crystal Palace have the pedigree and form to win at Old Trafford but, with another trip to the same stadium coming four days later, the expected changes could will make the job much tougher. United should have enough.
