Manchester United are looking to put one foot in the semifinals of the Europa League when they host Sevilla in Thursday nights first leg.

Manchester United host Charlton on Tuesday night needing a victory to book a place in the semifinals of the Carabao Cup.

The Red Devils beat Burnley 2-0 to make it to this stage of the competition while Charlton knocked out Brighton via a penalty shootout after a barren draw.

They then advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup after a 3-1 success over Everton on Friday night, while Charlton beat Lincoln City 2-1 in the third tier.

United are five-time winners but suffered back-to-back semi-final exits to Manchester City in 2020 and 2021.

If Erik Ten Hag’s men can muster a win on the night, this will be their sixth successive victory in all competitions.

They have also won all of their last 8 matches at Old Trafford, scoring 21 goals in the process, inspired by the in-form Marcus Rashford.

Charlton have never progressed to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup in their 118-year history and have only ever reached the quarter-finals once before in 2007.

The visitors do not have a good record against Man United and will need a miracle if they are to pull off an upset against the English Premier League outfit.
