Manchester United’s U21s are back in EFL Trophy action tonight as they face Rochdale of League One.
United’s youngsters couldn’t have had a better start to the season when they hammered League Two side and local rivals Salford City 6-0 in the EFL Trophy, with Hannibal Mejbri and Anthony Elanga shining in the rout.
However, they’ve had a tough start to their Premier League 2 campaign after seeing a number of key players leave on loan, ruled out through injury or promoted to the first team.
A 2-0 defeat to Leicester City was first up before a 5-3 loss to Liverpool, during which 16-year-old Shola Shoretire was shown a red card.
Neil Wood’s side will be hoping to bounce back from those disappointing results against Rochdale, who are level on three points with them at the top of the table after they beat Morecambe last time out.
