Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to ring the changes for his second trip to Brighton in less than a week.
The Red Devils beat the Seagulls 3-2 on Saturday in the Premier League and now return to the south coast in the Carabao Cup.
But expect a very different United line-up with the boss having made 10 alterations to his line-up for last week's 3-0 victory at Luton Town in the same competition.
That’s likely to mean another start for Dean Henderson, while the likes of Eric Bailly, Scott McTominay and Daniel James could also be handed opportunities to impress.
Juan Mata may miss out despite impressing against Luton with Donny van de Beek still settling in at his new team.
Fred and Jesse Lingard both started at Kenilworth Road and could again form part of United’s midfield at the Amex.
“Every game lives its own life and of course at the stage we’re at in the season with all the games coming up I think teams are making changes,” Solskjaer said.

“You can see teams have a cup team and a league team and we’ll make changes. It’ll be very similar to what happened last week against Luton.
“It’s an opportunity for game-time. We need to build up the squad for a long season ahead and of course it’s an opportunity for individuals to impress.
