Middlesbrough on the other hand also have some injury worries specially Stuart Downing who might not feature against United having suffered knock against Wolves over the weekend. This is how I expect both teams to lineup for the Wednesday capital one cup.

I am going with a 3-1 win for United with Wilson, Fellaini on the score-sheet.
