Man United Make Eight Wins in a Row to Reach Carabao Semis

Manchester United made it eight consecutive wins in all competitions by beating Charlton Athletic  3-0 at Old Trafford to reach the Carabao Cup semi-finals on Tuesday, January 10th, 2023.

Marcus Rashford scored a late double after Antony’s fine first-half strike.

The England international has now scored 15 goals this season, while his impressive cameo saw him find the net for a sixth game in a row and an eighth straight match at Old Trafford.

Man Utd youngsters Ghanaian born England under 18 international Kobbie Mainoo and Uruguayan Facundo Pellistri make senior debuts.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag made eight changes from the side that beat Everton 3-1 in the FA Cup third round on Friday.

Centre-back Lisandro Martinez started for the first time since winning the World Cup with Argentina. Goalkeeper Tom Heaton came into the XI and there was a debut for 17-year-old midfielder Kobbie Mainoo.

Captain Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay, Fred, Anthony Elanga and Alejandro Garnacho also started.

The players to make way were David de Gea, Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw, Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and the suspended Bruno Fernandes.

Charlton boss Dean Holden made one change from the team that beat Lincoln 2-1 in League One on Saturday.

That change came in goal, as Craig MacGillivray was replaced by Ashley Maynard-Brewer – who was the hero in the Addicks’ last-16 shootout win over Brighton. Maynard-Brewer was absent at the weekend due to concussion protocols.
