Victor Valdes will make his Manchester United debut tonight in the U21s fixture against Liverpool at Leigh Sports Village.

Louis van Gaal made it clear when he used Ander Herrera that he felt U21s was a great place for players to work their way into the first-team, regardless of how big a name the player is.

Tom Thorpe makes a return and will play alongside first-team duo Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett in defence.

In midfield, Anderson makes a surprise return and Warren Joyce has gone for a formation without a natural striker with Nick Powell and Jesse Lingard playing in attack.

The match kicks off at 7pm and is live on both MUTV and Sky Sports 1. Tune in to see the U21s in action as it should be a great game.
