Manchester United U21s vs Chelsea: Team news – Young and Jones start

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United U21s XI vs Chelsea: Johnstone, Riley, RoShaun Williams, Jones, Borthwick-Jackson, McNair, Varela, Love, Young, Pereira, Weir

Bench: Redmond, J.Pereira, Rothwell, El Fitouri, McTominay

Phil Jones and Ashley Young are both in the team to face Chelsea tonight. It’ll be the first time we’ve seen Young since January but for Jones it’s just another return from injury and the question is whether he’ll be able to kick on from here or suffer another one in the not too distant future.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Guillermo Varela also start as well as Andreas Pereira in an excellent team.

Louis van Gaal has always used U21s football as a way to ease players back from injury and it’ll be good to see the pair of them back in action.

The game is at Old Trafford tonight and is free entry, so you’ve got no excuse! It is also live on BT Sport tonight given the teams involved.
