Confirmed: Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur under-21 line-ups

Old Trafford

Here are the teams for the under-21 Premier League clash between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur this evening.

Manchester United under-21s: Valdes, Rafael, Love, Thorpe, James, Grimshaw, Goss, Rothwell, A.Pereira, Falcao, Wilson

Tottenham Hotspur under-21s: McGee, Walker-Peters, Ogilvie, Ward, Khumalo (c), Carter-Vickers, McEvoy, Lesniak, Coulthirst, Onomah, Miller

Manchester United’s youngsters will be looking to produce a better performance than the senior side managed last night, when they host Tottenham this evening.

United have some very talented young players and this is a great opportunity for them to excel and grab the attention of first team manager Louis van Gaal.

United are just ahead of Tottenham at the top of the table on goal difference having scored one more goal than the North Londoners so far in the competition.

Tottenham have the game in hand as things stand and have been one of the best youth teams in the country so far this season.

Tottenham first team boss Mauricio Pochettino has made a very handy habit of regularly drafting younger players into his first team and this is a great chance for the youth stars on show to impress the Argentine.

Tottenham under-21 boss Ugo Ehiogu will want to see a positive but tight start from the team and a gradually taking of control over the game by the midfielders.
