Manchester United Starting XI vs Tottenham Hotspur U21s: Pereira, Varela, Williams, Fosu-Mensah, Weir, Pearson, Willock, Redmond, Keane, Pereira, Harrop
The 22-year-old striker has been slowly working on his game after returning from a cruciate knee ligament injury and with United’s current strikers not offering enough, van Gaal brought him back to improve the squad.
It’s also great to see Pearson back in among the team. He enjoyed a very strong loan spell away at Barnsley and left a fantastic impression on the fans, so it will be interesting to see if he can force his way into van Gaal’s squad at some point this season. I’m a big fan of Pearson and his tenacious style of play and think he deserves a chance.
The game is live at 7pm on MUTV. Make sure to tune in.
