Manchester United vs Charlton Athletic live stream and match preview

Looking for a Manchester United vs Charlton Athletic live stream? We've got you covered.

The Red Devils have not won a trophy since Jose Mourinho's side triumphed in the Europa League in 2017. They are desperate to end that drought as soon as possible, and the Carabao Cup probably represents their best chance of doing so this season.

Manchester City (opens in new tab) have dominated this competition in recent years and they are still standing, as are high-flying Newcastle (opens in new tab).

But Arsenal (opens in new tab), Liverpool (opens in new tab), Tottenham (opens in new tab) and Chelsea (opens in new tab) have all been eliminated, and United have been handed the kindest possible draw in the quarter-finals.

That is not to dismiss Charlton's chances of causing a major upset at Old Trafford, but Erik ten Hag's team will be confident of getting the job done in front of their own fans.

United head into this game in fantastic form, having won seven games in a row in all competitions. They have not put together a lengthier winning streak since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's time as caretaker manager.

Ten Hag's side booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday, beating Everton (opens in new tab) 3-1 at Old Trafford.

The goal scored by Conor Coady in the 14th minute of that match was the first United have conceded since the domestic season resumed following World Cup 2022.

Charlton beat Lincoln 2-1 in League One on Saturday, building on a 3-1 victory over Portsmouth on New Year's Day.

Those back-to-back victories followed an eight-game winless run for the Addicks, during which Dean Holden was appointed in place of Ben Garner.

The Addicks will have to make do without Joe Wallacott, Diallang Jaiyesimi and Mandela Egbo for the trip to Manchester, while Ashley Maynard-Brewer will need to be assessed.

Sean Clare is available following suspension, while Chuks Aneke could be fit enough for a place in the matchday squad.

United will have to make do without Donny van de Beek, Jadon Sancho and Axel Tuanzebe on Tuesday.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Carabao Cup football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Carabao Cup action, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, and FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
