Manchester United will be looking to get their season back on track as they travel to face Luton Town in the Carabao Cup fixture on Tuesday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want a response from his side following defeat to Crystal Palace on the opening weekend of their season, but knows they face a tricky test against early Championship leaders Luton.

United are unbeaten in their last 10 meetings with Luton (W8 D2), with this the first time the sides have met since a top-flight match since a 1-1 draw at Kenilworth Road in April 1992.

In terms of early team news, Axel Tuanzebe is expected to miss out while Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo both also look unlikely to feature.

Below, our MEN United writers pick their teams to face Luton Town.

Samuel Luckhurst

Dean Henderson is a certain starter and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Eric Bailly need minutes ahead of potentially coming in at Brighton. Teden Mengi is deserving of a full debut and Brandon Williams is the obvious left-back option.

A midfield trident of Nemanja Matic, Fred and Donny van de Beek would provide quality and balance. Daniel James has to start on the left just to boost his confidence after he was mismanaged and Odion Ighalo is the logical centre forward.

Jesse Lingard would ordinarily be the pick to complement the attack but given he would rather be elsewhere there is no sense in playing him.

Early season form from Luton makes this a potential banana skin for United, but Solskjaer should still look to change things up with a squad which mixes youth and experience.

Henderson has a point to prove in goal and simply must start while it would be a good opportunity for Bailly to get valuable minutes under his belt. Lindelof and Maguire were both poor against Palace, but one of them still needs to start. Laird and Williams would bring welcome freshness at full-back.

Van de Beek has to start the match as does one of either of Fernandes or Pogba, with Pereira worthy of a place on the bench at least. Mata will bring added experience up top, while James should only ever be used on the left wing if possible. Ighalo would be a no-brainer in attack against physical opposition.

The Carabao Cup is normally a time to rest and rotate your squad but United's lack of match fitness was badly exposed on Saturday and this is an opportunity to try and correct that ahead of the weekend trip to Brighton.

One obvious area for a chance is in goal, with Henderson starting, but in defence Wan-Bissaka needs minutes. Williams can replace Shaw, who was back on the first day of pre-season, and Bailly deserves a chance ahead of Lindelof.

Van de Beek is another who looked sharp and for that reason he can start on the bench at Luton. Matic needs game time after his latest return to pre-season and Pogba and Fernandes looked in need of match fitness at the weekend.

It's a similar story up front. Ighalo might feel he deserves a chance, but the front three are crucial to United and Solskjaer needs to get Greenwood, Rashford and Martial up to speed very quickly.
