CARABAO CUP: United to face the Blades

United drawn away for the first round

24 June 2021

United have been drawn to play Championship side Sheffield United in the first round of this season's Carabao Cup competition.

The Blades were relegated from the Premier League last season and, as such, are one of the highest ranked clubs in this competition this time round.

They were a founder member of the Premier League in 1992 and made a return to that level in 2019, where they stayed until last season's relegation was confirmed.

The draw took place live on Sky Sports this afternoon, 

We'll have reaction to the draw from manager Chris Beech in the coming days. 

Ties scheduled to be played w/c 9 August. 

Full match information will be confirmed in due course.
