The former Wales star tweeted: “Today is probably the proudest day of my life.”
Also in contention to feature are Bjorn Hardley, Charlie Wellens, Zidane Iqbal, Sam Mather and Shola Shoretire.
Striker Shoretire, 17, has tasted first team action before, having made three outings under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Midfielders Wellens, 19, Mather, 17, and Iqbal, 18, are in contention to make their debuts, as is 18-year-old defender Hardley.
Rangnick, 63, called on teenager Anthony Elanga from the bench against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
He said: “I have to get to know the players first in the next couple of weeks to finally assess them. I am more than happy to have all of them on board and I will try to give them as much time as possible.
“It makes sense that we will rest a few players due to the crowded fixture list over the next few weeks.
“We need to make sure we have as many recovered players as possible for the Premier League.
“But on the other hand we need to keep the positive momentum and our ethos is to win games.
“Even if we may be playing with a few new players, some fresh players, it’s still important that we win.
“By the way the first game in this group we lost was at Young Boys, so we still need to make up for that.
“It’s clear, no matter which players will start, we definitely want to win the game.”
