- Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick will miss EFL Cup final
- The duo went off injured in the Europa League tie against St. Etienne

Reports claim Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick will miss EFL Cup final after picking up injuries at Saint-Etienne in the Europa League.
The Armenian came off holding his hamstring after scoring and was replaced by Marcus Rashford.
Michael Carrick also left the pitch too, to be replaced by Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Boss Jose Mourinho admitted the pair would most likely miss the EFL Cup final against Southampton this weekend.
“Honestly, I don’t think Mkhitaryan is fit for the final. I think him and Michael are both out,” said Mourinho.
“You can be injured leaving your house, you can be injured in the garden. You never know when and why.
“Obviously they are important players for us and not to have them both for the final is complicated but I think Marouane (Fellaini) and Bastian (Schweinsteiger) – two players who are normally not playing too much – is a good answer.
“I don’t say they will definitely miss out, I just say what I feel. It’s three days before the final. Even if it’s a minor injury I think three days is no time.”
Mhkitaryan scored the only goal of the game as United won 1 - 0 in the second leg of their round of 32 Europa League tie. United won the tie 4 - 0 on aggregate.
