Manchester United U21s starting XI: Lindegaard; Love, Thorpe, Blackett, Kellett; Grimshaw, Goss, Rothwell; Januzaj, A.Pereira, van Persie

O’Hara, El-Fitouri, Willock, Weir, Fletcher

Robin van Persie starts his second game in succession for Man United’s U21s tonight in their away trip to Fulham.

The 31-year-old is continuing his rehabilitation back towards full match fitness and made a forced cameo appearance against Everton at the weekend thanks to Wayne Rooney‘s injury.

In the last U21s game against Leicester, van Persie looked sluggish to start with but grew into the game as it progressed and Louis van Gaal will be hoping to see a similar performance from him tonight.

Adnan Januzaj, Tyler Blackett and Andeas Pereira are all also in the starting XI in what is another strong team from Warren Joyce’s side.

Currently, United are top of the U21s Premier League and a win tonight would consolidate their position.

Kick-off is at 7pm. Live on MUTV.
