Timothy Fosu-Mensah starts his first competitive game for Manchester United’s U21s tonight in the season opener against Leicester City.
The versatile Dutchman has played with Man United’s U21s during their pre-season preparations and scored his first ever goal for them again with a cracking strike against Stockport.
Having stormed it in his debut season with United for the U18s, Fosu-Mensah was fast-tracked into the U21s and it’ll be exciting to see how he gets on this year under Warren Joyce’s guidance.
It’s a relatively inexperienced U21s side tonight from United as there are no first-team players getting any minutes but Joyce will want his side to get off to a strong start in their defence of the U21s Premier League trophy.
