by Sam Peoples

Henderson, Reid, Williams, Fosu-Mensah, Borthwick-Jackson, Thompson, Redmond, Dearnley, Rathbone, Hamilton, Croskery

Subs: Byrne, Tuanzebe, Dunne, Riley, Rashford

Manchester United’s U18s are in action this afternoon in their midweek fixture against Sunderland.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah looks to have been given a role in the heart of defence alongside RoShaun Williams as Axel Tuanzebe, fresh from his place on the U21s bench last night, has been rested by Paul McGuinness.

Marcus Rashford, who also featured on the bench for the U21s, is named on the bench as well with Ruairi Croskery chosen to lead the line up front.

Oliver Rathbone starts in midfield for Man United and fans will obviously be hoping he can repeat the wonder-goal which he scored for the U18s recently.

Man United’s U18s have been in great form this season and McGuinness will want them to put in another strong performance this afternoon, especially after the disappointment of seeing Warren Joyce’s U21s get knocked out of the Manchester Senior Cup last night by Bolton Wanderers.
