Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have faced a testing start to the season and our tipster is backing a game of few goals at Old Trafford on Wednesday

Manchester United will be hoping to bounce back from defeat to West Ham when they host League One Rochdale in the Carabao Cup third round.

The Red Devils went down 2-0 at the London Stadium in the Premier League but can claim their third consecutive win at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Manchester United vs Rochdale Latest Odds

888Sport offer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men at just 1/10 (1.10) to better last season’s return by reaching the fourth round of the tournament this time around.

Rochdale have only got past the third round of this competition once – when they reached the final back in 1962 – and are 17/1 (18.0) to record one of their greatest victories in history.

The draw, which would take the game directly to penalties as happened when United lost to Derby County in the third round last season, is 19/2 (10.50) with the online bookmaker.

Solskjaer is likely to rotate his side, with Mason Greenwood in line to play if he recovers from illness in time. Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes, Axel Tuanzebe and Sergio Romero are all set to start, while Paul Pogba should play some part.

Callum Camps and Ian Henderson each have four goals in all competitions this season, with the former netting twice in the 5-2 first-round win over Bolton.

Anything less than victory in normal time for Manchester United would be a disaster for Solskjaer, with the Red Devils having won just three of their last 13 games in all competitions.

All those wins have come at Old Trafford and a heavily-rotated side should be able to see off Rochdale, although goals could be at a premium.

United have netted more than once in just one of those 13 competitive fixtures whilst their League One opponents have managed just 10 goals in nine league games this season.

Under 3.5 goals is offered at 49/50 (1.98) by 888Sport and that appears to be excellent value for this Carabao Cup clash on Wednesday.

This bet would have landed in the Red Devils’ last six fixtures and nine of their last 10 in all competitions, whilst eight of Rochdale’s most recent nine have all seen under four goals.
