Phil Jones has been named in Wednesday's Carabao Cup team as he continues his recovery from a long-term knee injury. Following a 20-month injury layoff, the Manchester United defender will return to the squad for Wednesday's League Cup encounter against West Ham United, according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
