by Sam Peoples

Confirmed Man United XI vs Reading U21s: J.Pereira; Fosu-Mensah, Williams, Poole, Riley; Willock, Redmond; El Fitouri, Rothwell, Weir; Rashford.

Substitutes: Henderson, Warren, McTominay, Doughty, Mitchell

Man United’s U18s striker Marcus Rashford starts up front tonight for the U21s in their clash against Reading.

Will Keane has been left out of the team as has Andreas Pereira and that points towards both being included in Thursday night’s Europa League game.

James Weir drops back down to the U21s after he took a replace on United’s bench at the weekend and Joe Rothwell remains in the starting XI, fresh from scoring the winning goal against Manchester City’s U21s last Thursday in a close 1-0 win.

It looks like the very promising Timothy Fosu-Mensah is being used as a full-back against Reading. His versatility has seen him play across the whole defence, midfield and in attacking midfield so far at United. He’s the one to watch.

Tonight’s game will kick-off at 7pm. Live on MUTV>
