Man United vs Charlton live stream: match preview

Erik ten Hag will be hoping to lead Manchester United a step closer to lifting their first trophy in six years as his side take on League One Charlton Athletic this evening in this Carabao Cup quarter-final clash at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils come into the tie looking like a side on the up following a challenging start to ten Hag's tenure. United are already into the fourth-round of the FA Cup and are now sitting nicely poised in the Premier League’s top four.

Key to the turnaround has been the much improved form of United’s number 10 Marcus Rashford, who was on target for the hosts in their 2-0 home win over Burnley in the previous round of this tournament last month.

The team sheets are in, and ten Hag has opted to ring the changes, with Rashford starting on the bench despite his scintillating recent performances. It's a big night for 17-year-old Kobbie Mainoo, with the midfielder named in the starting line up for the first time.

Tom Heaton meanwhile starts in goal for the hosts, while Argentine World Cup winner Lisandro Martinez also returns to the starting United XI for the first time since his exploits in Qatar.

Charlton welcome Sean Clare back from suspension, but goalkeeper Joe Wollacott misses out due to a broken finger, with Aussie stopper Ashley Maynard-Brewer replacing him between the sticks.

Dean Holden's Addicks are two rungs below United in the English football pyramid and currently marooned in mid table in League One. Nevertheless, the Red Devils would do well not to underestimate the South London side, with Charlton having shocked Premier League high-flyers Brighton with a win on penalties in the previous round.

The match can be watched on subscription streaming services like ESPN+ in the US and beIN Sports in Australia. Here's how to get a Manchester United vs Charlton live stream online from anywhere in the world today.
