Subs: Willock, O’Hara, Goss, Fletcher, Kellett

Sadiq El Fitouri will make his Manchester United debut tonight for the U21s.

Having joined from Salford City, the 20-year-old defender comes in to face Sunderland and Man United fans will be keen to see how he fares, as will Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers as he was signed on their recommendation.

James Wilson is also in action with United’s U21s as is Tyler Blackett from the first-team. Given how poor Louis van Gaal‘s attack currently is, his inclusion is more than likely down to simply getting some game time rather than anything else.

There is also no place in the squad for Rafael despite the fact the Brazilian right-back had played three consecutive matches for the U21s prior to tonight’s game against Sunderland.

19:00GMT kick-off. Live on MUTV.
