Manchester United U21s recorded a resounding 4-0 victory over Manchester City on Tuesday in front of 17,000 fans at Old Trafford.
Their performances will also give Louis van Gaal plenty of food for thought as he prepares for the next campaign.
We asked our Twitter followers who they think can make the step up to the first-team next season:

@PeoplesPerson_ Thorpe's been due a chance for a while now

@PeoplesPerson_ Rothwell looks good, Thorpe is excellent, shame he's played a grand total of one minute in the first team. He's a leader.

@peoplesperson_ Thorpe's been due a chance for a while. Didn't play but think Pearson deserves a go too.

@PeoplesPerson_ Tom Thorpe should play against Hull if we get the job done at Arsenal

@PeoplesPerson_ Thorpe for preseason first and foremost. Level-headed guy, could get his chances if McNair and Blackett are loaned out.

@PeoplesPerson_ Wilson Pearson and Thorpe. Amazed Thorpe been bumped behind blackett and mcnair this year

@peoplesperson_ Tom Thorpe. I still wonder why LvG chose McNair ahead of Thorpe

Tom Thorpe is the player who fans feel has to get his chance sooner rather than later following a number of impressive displays.
Unfortunately, United were in need of a left-footed centre-back earlier in the season and Thorpe is less suited to the role than Blackett. It remains to be seen if he will finally be given an opportunity, particularly as United continue to be linked to the likes of Mats Hummels.
