U21s: Manchester United vs Man City Teams: Will Keane starts

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United Starting XI vs Man City U21s: J.Pereira; El Fitouri, Williams, Fosu-Mensah, Riley; Willock, Redmond, Rothwell, Weir; Keane, Rashford.

Substitutes: Dorrington, McTominay, Rathbone, Doughty, Mitchell.

Manchester United’s U21s face off against Man City this afternoon for the second time in as many weeks.

Following a 1-0 in the last encounter, Warren Joyce’s side will want to assert their dominance in Manchester with another win and he’ll be boosted by the surprise appearance of Will Keane in his starting XI.

The striker has been prolific with the U21s but with Wayne Rooney‘s injury, Man United’s first-team only has one fit striker in Anthony Martial so it is a big surprise to see Keane play today given how risky it is were he to be injured.

Other than Keane, youngster Marcus Rashford plays for the U21s today as does Joe Rothwell who scored the only goal in the 1-0 win against City last time around. As always, I am excited to see the powerful Timothy Fosu-Mensah play and it looks like he is starting at centre-back.

The game is live on MUTV. Kick-off is 1pm.
