Louis van Gaal has handed Andreas Pereira his first competitive start for Manchester United for the Capital One Cup clash against Ipswich Town this evening.

Pereira impressed on Man United’s pre-season tour of the United States and will be looking to make an impression at Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, van Gaal has named a strong lineup. Wayne Rooney, Bastian Schweinsteiger, David de Gea, Juan Mata and Ander Herrera all start.

Supporters had hoped to see some more youngsters included in the XI but it is clear that van Gaal wants to avoid a repeat of the 4-0 defeat against MK Dons which knocked United out of the Capital One Cup last term. Tonight’s starting XI should have more than enough to see off Ipswich but van Gaal will undoubtedly warn against complacency.
