19:00 - Hello everyone I am Danial Kennedy and welcome to VAVEL's live commentary of Manchester United - Ipswich Town.

This fixture was a main staple throughout the 1970's and 80's but they have not met for a whopping 13 years, United currently have the one up over their opponents tonight - with 28 victories to Ipswich's 19.

The visitors' last victory against United actually came in this competition back in 1997 with goals from Alex Mathie and Mauricio Taricco giving them a 2-0 victory at Portman Road.

Ipswich: Goalkeeper Dean Gerken is expected to shake off a knock to play between the sticks at the Theatre of Dreams along with Ryan Fraser and Kevin Bru who have both had stints on the sidelines through respective injuries.

Manchester United: Andreas Pereira, Jesse Lingard and James Wilson may feature for van Gaal's side tonight - despite the latter shining in the under-21 side as they beat Everton 3-1 on Monday evening. It has also been confirmed that Marcos Rojo and Paddy McNair will not be available for selection. Sergio Romero is expected to start in-between the sticks, as David de Gea has asserted himself as the first-team 'keeper once again, following the controversy surrounding his proposed move to La Liga giants Real Madrid. Meanwhile, Marouane Fellaini and Ashley Young are both expected to start. 

The confirmed team line-ups will be announced shortly, but before then.. time for some team news! 

However, the 56-year-old has said he is "looking forward" to the trip up to the north West. Despite his previous results, he still believes that it is a "special place", against one of the biggest clubs in the world - an "amazing" stadium to compete in. 

McCarthy himself, admitted that the trip to the Theatre of Dreams will be a daunting one. His personal record against the European powerhouses is far from impressive, with only one win out of the eight previous meetings in the entirety of his managerial career thus far. 

Since then though, their form has been steady. A narrow 1-0 victory over Leeds United, followed by a closely-fought 1-1 draw with Birmingham City at the weekend, means that Mick McCarthy's men head to Manchester with quiet optimism about their chances of progression into the next round of the tournament. 

However, this time last week, they were in the knowledge that they'd conceded eight goals in their last two matches - with 3-2 and 5-1 losses at the hands of Brighton and Reading respectively.

Meanwhile, moving swiftly onto United's opponents tonight - Ipswich. Their start to the Championship season has been a strong one, they currently sit in fifth place with three points between themselves and Middlesbrough, who are in second. 

AS IT STANDS: In the league table itself, United are only two points behind their local rivals, and league leaders, Manchester City. Having lost 2-0 at home against West Ham on Saturday, they've already lost ground on an impressive start to the 2015/16 campaign thus far. 

van Gaal has only taken charge of one League Cup match since he took over the reins at Old Trafford, and it was a forgettable evening for them a year ago. Their embarrassing 4-0 defeat at the hands of then-League One side MK Dons knocked them out prematurely from a tournament they should have progressed deep into - but thankfully since then, the Dutchman's side has improved significantly since then.

It was the hosts who took the lead through Graziano Pellé, and despite United being under the kosh for the majority of the first-half, a brace from Anthony Martial as well as a well-worked team goal finished off by Juan Mata gave the visitors all three points at St. Mary's Stadium - cancelling out Pellé's late second.

United continued their good form on Sunday afternoon with a narrow, but commanding 3-2 victory over Southampton.

United manager Louis van Gaal will be praying for a simple passage into the next round of the competition, as he faces a hectic eleven days. The Red Devils have a crucial UEFA Champions League fixture against Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg next week, which is sandwiched by league games against Sunderland and Arsenal respectively.

Manchester United will be looking to start their domestic cup journey in style when they take Sky Bet Championship side Ipswich Town at Old Trafford tonight - the Tractor Boys have nothing to lose though, and will be hoping for a surprise victory away from home..

Good evening everyone! My name is Danial Kennedy, and I'll be taking you through the night's action as the second night of Capital One Cup third round fixtures gets underway!
