Yeovil will be without suspended Pakistani talisman Otis Khan, who’ll be missing his “dreams of playing against his boyhood team”, as he tweeted on Sunday.
Rhys Browne looks to be on the mend from his ankle injury but Omar Sowunmi looks set to miss out on proceedings with concussion.
The Red Devils have included new man Alexis Sanchez, and it seems as though Mourinho will be taking the competition seriously after pledging to field a “very strong team”.
Nonetheless, cup regular Sergio Romero looks poised to start ahead of David de Gea, while Mourinho seems to have a full-strength squad at his disposal.
