Angel Gomes makes his Premier League debut for Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

Angel Gomes came on for the last few minutes in Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace to make his debut for the club.

Aged just 16, Gomes becomes the youngest player since the 1960s to make his Man United debut and he is the youngest ever player in the Premier League era to put on the United shirt.

The fact Gomes came on for Wayne Rooney may well be symbolic of a potential goodbye for Rooney and Old Trafford gave a huge ovation to Rooney so it could indeed be the end of one era and the beginning of another at the same time.

What a moment for Gomes on a brilliant day for United.
