Manchester United saw off Championship front-runners Burnley in the last 16. It was United's first competitive game since the World Cup break, but Marcus Rashford showed no signs of fatigue when he collected the ball in his own half, beat two defenders on the edge of the box, and fired a low shot past Bailey Peacock-Farrell in the Burnley goal. Erik ten Hag has taken the opportunity to give some minutes to fringe players here, but that doesn't mean they'll go easy on the Addicks.

Despite signing Jack Butland earlier in the week Tom Heaton gets the nod in goal for United tonight, while Lisandro Martinez returns to the defence. 17-year-old Kobbie Mainoo makes his debut.

It took a penalty shootout for Charlton to beat Brighton & Hove Albion in the last round of the Carabao Cup, but in truth it shouldn't have come to that at all. The Seagulls barely gave the Addicks a sniff of the ball, but couldn't turn their dominance into anything meaningful in the final third. The League One side triumphed after a shocking set of penalties all round, but with the quality that Manchester United possess in their squad, Charlton won't be able to rely on the Red Devils being so wasteful.

There's just one change to the Charlton side that beat Lincoln City at home on Saturday, with Australian goalkeeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer, who performed well in the previous round, between the sticks.  

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT (3pm ET) today, Tuesday 10th January. Read on to find out on how to watch a Manchester United vs Charlton Athletic live stream, wherever you are in the world, on TV, online and on mobile.
