After knocking out Chelsea in the last 16 of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night, Manchester United may have been hoping to avoid some of the remaining Premier League big-hitters for the next round.
Arch-rivals Manchester City and Liverpool had similarly progressed thanks to wins over Southampton and Arsenal respectively, whilst Everton and Aston Villa were also in the mix.
Instead, in the draw for the quarter-finals on Thursday morning, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side received a massive slice of luck. The Red Devils were handed a home tie against Colchester United, with the winners heading onto the semi-finals stage.
After hearing of who they had gotten in the next round of the competition, United fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the matter.

Whilst there may have been an expectation that supporters of the Manchester side would have been absolutely delighted by what had transpired, that did not appear to be the case with some sections of the support.
A few Red Devils fans appeared to fear the worst, and suggested that they will now be heading out of the League Cup in embarrassing fashion.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
