Mourinho told his players to take it easy on Burton at half

Jose Mourinho has promised to take the League Cup seriously again this season with the Manchester United manager planning to rest just four of his stars for the clash with Burton Albion on Wednesday. Find out by following our live matchcast.

The experienced central midfielder will play alongside Ander Herrera.

They nearly added a second immediately after, Carrick again freeing Lingard - only for the forward to see a goal-bound effort blocked.

"When we arrive at half-time with the 3-0, from that moment it is just to let it go and finish as soon as possible".

United have now scored 17 goals in five home matches this season in all competitions, although Burton became the first of those visiting sides to score at Old Trafford.

Academy graduate Marcus Rashford was leading the line in Lukaku's absence and the 19-year-old justified his manager's faith with a quick-fire double to get United off to a blistering chance and banish any hopes Burton fans had of a stunning upset.

Michael Carrick could also play for the first time this season after signing a new one-year contract and becoming club captain in the summer.

On Wednesday, the players of Championship side Burton Albion will get to do just that - but the dreams may not last long given that they'll be facing a white-hot United side in the third round of the League Cup.

Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal also progressed, as did Everton who ended a run of four consecutive defeats with a welcome 3-0 home victory against second-tier Sunderland.

Manager #Jose Mourinho named a relatively strong side before kick-off, perhaps signalling his intentions for this year's competition, and the Red Devils were an obvious class above their opponents.
