Manchester United’s 25-man Premier League squad has now been officially announced.

The squad had to be submitted to the Premier League by 5pm yesterday with no more than 17 players who aren’t considered a ‘Home Grown Player’, somebody who has has been registered to the FA for at least three seasons prior to turning 21.

For United, there are no big surprises as to everybody who is in the squad but the inclusion of Marnick Vermijl and Davide Petrucci is great news.

Guillermo Varela‘s departure on loan to Real Madrid shows that Louis van Gaal has real faith in Marnick Vermijl to become an important player in the first-team squad.

As for Petrucci’s inclusion in the squad, it’s another opportunity for him to fulfil on his undoubted potential that has been held back due to injuries.

Van Gaal also has the option to add as many home-grown United-21s players as he wants throughout the season.

Manchester United’s 2014/15 Premier League squad (home-grown = *): Ben Amos*, David De Gea, Anders Lindegaard; Jonny Evans*, Phil Jones*, Rafael*, Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, Marnick Vermijl*; Anderson, Daley Blind, Michael Carrick*, Angel Di Maria, Marouane Fellaini, Darren Fletcher*, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard*, Juan Mata, Davide Petrucci*, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young*; Radamel Falcao, Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie.
