Although the youngsters get a chance to play in the competition – and tonight will be no different – Fergie still takes the competition seriously.
Into tonight’s side will be Darron Gibson, Chris Smalling, Bebe and Federico Macheda at Upton Park.
"It would be great to win it three times in a row. I think we were the first to win it twice in a row and that was a feat in itself," said Ferguson.
"But the League Cup is an interesting trophy now. We come into it a bit later and it gives me a chance to play the young players.
"Over the last three years the Da Silvas, Danny Welbeck and Macheda are among the players to have won a League Cup winners' medal.
"It's a healthy position for them to be in because they get to play in cup finals and judge how to handle it.
"The players who played against Wolves are hopefully the club's future. By the time they're 24 or 25, we hope they'll be the next Manchester United stars."
