United morning news: £150m of talent unleashed; Evans reveals Blackett strengths

A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has been talking about his young teammate Tyler Blackett.

The 20-year-old has played every league match for United so far this season and has looked comfortable next to his more illustrious centre-backs.

In an interview with United Review also published by the club’s official website, Evans said, “I’ve been very impressed.

“He’s left-footed so it’s been good for the balance on the left-hand side. He’s also a very strong and powerful lad, and it’s surprising how good his passing has been. He’s done really well.”

It remains to be seen if Blackett will feature on Sunday against Queens Park Rangers with Marcos Rojo tipped to make his debut having finally secured his work permit.

Speaking of which, the Manchester Evening News has published a story regarding United’s new recruits, revealing that at some point tomorrow all six of their recent additions could be on the pitch.

With Radamel Falcao, Daley Blind, Luke Shaw and Rojo all set to make their competitive debuts, and Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria also tipped to play, this could be the first chance United fans get to see their new-look side in action, and excitement is rife in the build-up following their £150million summer outlay.
