It seems that the England International always put his strike boots on when he plays a cup game. Be it FA cup or Carabao cup.

Victor Lindelof is relieved: The Benfica star was brutally trolled over the social media and by the pundits after his horrible mistake against Huddersfield costed his team too much.
But he had a decent game tonight as the Swedish made tenth appearance for the club. Keeping a clean sheet and performing decently will surely boost his morale.

Also he got the reaction from his players he wanted as their attitude was brilliant throughout the whole night.
Swansea gutted: Paul Clement and his side will be gutted to see themselves out of the competition as they were looking forward to put real pressure on this young Manchester united squad.
But their not so decent gameplan actually helped Manchester united to dominate the match.
