U21s: Manchester United vs Everton – Confirmed team news

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United U21s Starting XI vs Everton: Johnstone, Varela, Tuanzebe, Love, Borthwick-Jackson, Goss, Weir, Fosu-Mensah, Wilson, Harrop, Lingard

James Wilson and Jesse Lingard start for Manchester United’s U21s tonight against Everton at Leigh Sports Village.

They haven’t had any opportunities with the first-team so it’ll be good for both to get game time under their belt.

It’s also great to see Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah starting for Warren Joyce’s U21s. The duo were fantastic for the U18s last season and deserve to be playing.

In particular, Fosu-Mensah’s rise through the U18s and U19s last season after joining from Ajax was exciting to watch, so he’ll be one to keep an eye on this season with the U21s.

Sam Johnstone returns in goal while Uruguayan Guillermo Varela starts at right-back and Sean Goss plays in midfield having continued with the U21s since joining the first-team on this summer’s pre-season tour of USA.
