Man Utd U21s vs Fulham: Line-ups – Powell and Rafael start

by Sam Peoples

J Pereira, Rafael, Blackett, Thorpe, Janko, Harrop, James, A Pereira, A Fletcher, Lingard, Powell.

Rafael and Nick Powell are both in Manchester United’s starting XI to face Fulham’s U21s tonight.

Josh Harrop returns from injury to come back into midfield and Ashley Fletcher has been given an opportunity to start up front for Warren Joyce’s U21s.

Tom Thorpe and Tyler Blackett make up the heart of Man United’s defence and it looks like the U21s will set up in a 4-4-2 formation.

Also, Joel Pereira starts in goal which could mean both that Anders Lindegaard has been left out of the team in order to complete a move away from the club and that Victor Valdes is in line to make his full debut for Man United tomorrow.

It’s another strong line-up for United’s U21s which includes a few first-team squad members and Joyce will certainly want his side to secure all three points this evening.

Kick-off is 7pm. Live on MUTV.
