Bastian Schweinsteiger warns Manchester United to keep their focus ahead of their clash with Ipswich

Bastian Schweinsteiger has taken to social media to warn Manchester United that they must keep their focus as they prepare for their League Cup clash with Ipswich Town on Wednesday night.

Louis van Gaal’s men host Mick McCarthy’s men at Old Trafford in the third round of the cup competition looking to build on their impressive Premier League form.

United head into the game on the back of their dramatic 3-2 win over Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, a victory which moved them up to second place in the table and just two points behind leaders Manchester City.

And United’s summer signing Schweinsteiger posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “League Cup against Ipswich! We have to be very focussed. #mufc”

United will be without defenders Marcos Rojo and Paddy McNair for Wednesday’s clash due to injury, manager Van Gaal confirmed on Tuesday.
