Four Manchester United players will miss the Carabao Cup last eight clash between the club and Colchester United who features in the fourth division of English football.

English League Two club Colchester United will be guests of Manchester United in one of the three Carabao Cup quarterfinal ties billed for three different centers on Wednesday.

In the other two ties, League One team Oxford United will host Premier League champions and Carabao Cup holders Manchester City, while two Premier League sides Everton and Leicester City will face off for a place in the semifinals.

The Manchester United quartet of Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Paul Pogba will miss the Colchester United game.

For Frenchman Pogba, he has been sick for the past few days according to club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and that has ruled him out of the next game.

Marcos Rojo is a utility defender and the Argentine will miss the game with Colchester United, while the duo of Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Eric Bailly are back in training after a lengthy layoff because of a serious knee injury.

Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are not expected to feature for Manchester United again this year despite returning to training mainly due to fitness.
