Subs: Harrop, Pereira (GK), Willock, Fletcher, Kellett

Rafael and James Wilson start for Manchester United’s U21s tonight against Everton.

Both have been on the fringes of the first-team and will be looking to make a good impression up against what is quite a strong Everton side that includes Leon Osman and Arouna Kone.

Victor Valdes is not part of Warren Joyce’s match-day squad and has instead been replaced by Anders Lindegaard.

New signing Andy Kellett is on the bench once again and could make his debut for Man United if he is brought on as a substitute.

Tom Thorpe partners Tyler Blackett in the heart of defence and the U21s captain has once again been in impressive form since returning from injury, leaving fans confused as to why he hasn’t been given his opportunity with the first-team.

Kick-off is at 19:00 GMT. Live on MUTV.
