Burton Albion go in search of a Carabao Cup upset against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United at Old Trafford as they return to the scene of their famous 2006 FA Cup replay.

The Brewers are three divisions higher than they were when they last faced the Red Devils - but the odds are still stacked against them as they look to make the fourth round of this competition for the first time in their history.

Victories over Oldham Athletic and Cardiff City have got them to this stage, where they are likely to face a strong United side.

John Brayford, Liam Boyce and Will Miller are the only Burton players unavailable for tonight's contest, although Nigel Clough, like Mourinho, is likely to make several changes from the side that beat Fulham on Saturday.

Brewers boss Nigel Clough has been speaking to media

Their quality showed. They had £180 million on the pitch, never mind the bench.”We had a go, we came in at half time 3-0 down, but we had some good chances. We could have come here and put 10 men behind the ball. There’s no point in that. We wanted a goal. If you told the travelling fans that they would ever see Burton score a goal at Old Trafford they would take that I’m sure. The whole squad is here tonight. It’s a reward for the lads who got us here. We went out. We had a go. We scored a goal. Now we turn to QPR.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been speaking post-match

Anthony Martial wanted to do things – some he did amazingly well, others not so well but he was always trying and that commitment and happiness on the pitch is always important. If the competition is an official competition then it is important for Manchester United and for me as a manager. If you ask me could the English football survive or even be better without this competition? Maybe, maybe we would be fresher for European competition for example. But we have this competition, we have to respect the sponsors, we have to respect the opponents and a lot of us are trying to do our best.

No press from either manager

Here's who United have drawn

It would have been Swansea City away for Burton...

Here's our verdict from Old Trafford...

Not a bad feather to their cap

Stay tuned for our verdict and reaction from manager Nigel Clough

He’ll have plenty to say about tonight’s match, I would imagine.

Burton fans applaud their team

By my reckoning, they become the first away team to score at Old Trafford this season

Full-time!

Referee Graham Scott calls an end to proceedings as Burton Albion are downed 4-1 by a rampant Manchester United side here at Old Trafford. Goals Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and a Marcus Rashford brace condemned the Brewers to defeat, but not before Lloyd Dyer could pull one back.

Full match reaction to follow.

90: GOAL!

Lloyd Dyer hammers home from close-range after Joe Mason’s header hit the bar - but Dyer made no mistake as ‘keeper Pereira fluffed his attempted catch.

A nice consolation for Albion’s fans to cheer.

88: Martial has Ripley rooted to the spot

But it’s just wide, by a whisker...

87: Lingard brought down by Murphy

It’s in a dangerous position...

86: Dyer blazes over!

He’s been one of the more dangerous players for Burton, but he isn’t going to trouble the United ‘keeper there.

79: Chance!

Martial should have had his second, firing wide under pressure from Flanagan...

78: This is different

Lucas Akins replaces Hope Akpan - while United sub ‘keepers, with Joel Periera replacing Romero.

74: Chance!

Some nice work from the Brewers sees Lund released down the right, his cross is then headed over by Hope Akpan - who can’t direct his effort on target.

73: Martial bursts through again

But it’s gathered by Ripley.

71: Warnock booked

For fouling McTominay - who was racing clear.

70: A long through ball forces Lindelof to clear

But only as far as his own ‘keeper, with Romero desperately clearing away.

That ball was hit through to Lloyd Dyer - who hasn’t seen too much action in the second-half.

64: And he's straight into the thick of it

Seeing a shot blocked by the Brewers.

64: Rashford coming off

For academy graduate Scott McTominay...

62: Rashford goes close again

But his effort is blocked. United turning it up a notch now.

61: GOAL! 4-0 United

Martial gets his goal! Naylor’s mis-kick gifted the ball to Rashford, who played in Martial with the striker coolly slotting home.

58: Excellent save by Ripley

Martial, twisting and turning once more, forces Ripley into a smart save from close-range. Looked to have buried that...
