United face Rochdale in League Cup

Manchester United will be at home to near neighbours Rochdale in the third round of the League Cup. The tie is due to be played in the week beginning the 23rd of September.

Here’s hoping that Ole Gunnar Solskj√¶r puts out a decent team and has a proper go at winning the competition as it might be United’s best chance of a trophy this season and a cup run would surely be good for momentum and morale at the club.

Rochdale dispatched Carlisle United 2-1 at home in the second round, having beaten crisis club Bolton Wanderers 5-2, also at home, in the first round.
