The Red Devils beat Aston Villa 4-2 in the last round and are licking their lips at the thought of winning the trophy in Erik Ten Hag's first season.
But they must first play Championship side Burnley, who were relegated from the Premier League last season but are top of the league as they seek to return at the first time of asking.
Burnley are also managed by none other than United nemesis Vincent Kompany, who won numerous titles for rivals Manchester City and will be keen to progress.

Early team news…
We are set to see some forgotten stars feature for Manchester United tonight, as well as one of the games brightest stars…
Martin Dubravka and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are set for recalls to the side, and it could be another chance for Alejandro Garnacho to light up the big stage.
Goalkeeper Dubravka joined United on loan in the summer but made his only appearance in the round-three win over Aston Villa with De Gea playing the rest of the 20 games.
At right-back, Wan-Bissaka will make just his second appearance of the season, after he has been kept out of the side by the in-form Diego Dalot.
