Manchester United vs Charlton Athletic Match Analysis & Prediction
10/01/2023 11:00 pm
A place in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup is at stake when Manchester United welcome League One side Charlton Athletic to Old Traafford on Tuesday night.
While Erik ten Hag’s side progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup after a 3-1 victory over Everton on Friday, Charlton beat Loncoln City 2-1 in the third tier last time out.
The Red Devils, who last went all the way in 2017, suffered back-to-back semi-final exits to Manchester City in 2020 and 2021, and their last two quarter-final eliminations have come against sides in lower divisions.
The Ten Hag revolution is gathering momentum, as Manchester United enter the contest aiming to extend their winning streak across all competitions to six matches, and all eight of their last games at Old Trafford have ended in victory.
After suffering an early FA Cup exit against Stockport County, Charlton instead continued their quest for an unlikely playoff spot in the League One standings against Lincoln on Saturday and were rewarded for their first-half attacking craft.
Charlton remain rank outsiders when it comes to challenging for a coveted place in the Championship, languishing in 12th spot and nine points adrift of the top six.
Dean Holden’s side have never progressed to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup in their history and have only ever reached the quarter-finals once before in the 2006-07 season, which ended in defeat as Wycombe Wanderers claimed a 1-0 victory.
Queens Park Rangers, Walsall, Stevenage and Brighton & Hove Albion have all fallen against Charlton in the 2022-23 EFL Cup, but only against Walsall did they not need a penalty shootout to progress, and the Addicks have lost all of their last 10 encounters with Manchester United.
