Manchester United U21s vs Spurs: Team line-ups – Radamel Falcao starts

by Sam Peoples

Valdes, Rafael, Love, Thorpe, James, Grimshaw, Goss, Rothwell, A.Pereira, Falcao, Wilson

Subs: O’Hara, Kellett, Tuanzebe, Willock, Harrop

Radamel Falcao is in action for Manchester United tonight in the U21s game against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Colombian was an unused substitute last night against Arsenal and Louis van Gaal has decided to play him with the U21s in order to get game time. His inclusion in the squad is indicative of how van Gaal currently isn’t confident enough to play him with the first-team.

James Wilson starts alongside Falcao in what is one of the strongest strike partnerships you’re likely to see at U21s level.

Victor Valdes and Rafael da Silva are both also in the starting XI in what is a very strong team which Warren Joyce has put out.

Andreas Pereira is also in action and Axel Tuanzebe has been given a spot on the bench once again.

Kick-off is at 7pm. Live on MUTV.
