Manchester United’s Under-23s are still searching for their first victory since being promoted back to the top tier of youth football.
Neil Wood’s United side host Everton at Leigh Sports Village this evening (kicking off at 7pm), looking to build on two chaotic away draws in their past two outings. United drew 3-3 with Arsenal last time out, and 2-2 against Blackburn before that and have also suffered two defeats this season.
Tonight they are boosted by the appearance of summer signing Facundo Pellistri. The 18-year-old arrival from Uruguay will “get his first taste of English football”, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer put it after United signed the winger from Penarol.
Marcos Rojo and Brandon Williams are also set to feature as United give players much-needed game time.
They are likely to be joined by usual U23 suspects Hannibal Mejbri, Teden Mengi and Ethan Galbraith in the side tonight.
