Manchester United will be looking to build upon their recent impressive run of form when they host Arsenal in Premier League 2 Division One on Friday night.
Neil Wood’s young side head into the clash positioned sixth in the top division of Under-23s football after an incredible few weeks which has seen them thrash Liverpool 6-3 and Blackburn 6-4. Arsenal are eighth having drawn both of their last two matches.
Another victory for United this weekend could see them rise to as high as fourth in the table with Wood’s side currently four points behind league leaders Manchester City.
In terms of team news, Shola Shoretire is expected to start having signed his first professional deal with the club earlier in the week, while eyes will be on Hannibal Mejbri and Amad, should they be involved as well.
