Manchester United’s Under 23s are looking for their first points of the season as they face Blackburn in Premier League 2 Divsion One on Friday afternoon.
Neil Wood’s side have endured a tricky start to life back in the top-flight of reserve-team football this season with two defeats from their opening two matches of the campaign.
United lost against Leicester in their opening match before they were thumped 5-3 by Liverpool a week ago, and will be keen to get their first points on the board against third-placed Blackburn.
It is important to note United have prioritised loaning out their most promising players at youth level this season and, as expected, are finding life difficult against much older sides even at U23 level.
Tahith Chong, James Garner, Dylan Levitt, Aliou Traore and Matej Kovar are among the youngsters to have left.
United line-up: Mastny; Neville, Fish (c), Bernard, Ercolani; McCann, Hansen; Wellens, Hannibal, Elanga; Hugill
Substitutes: Carney, Bejger, Stanley, Emeran.
