Confirmed: Manchester United under-21 line-up v Southampton - Evans features

Here is the Manchester United under-21 side to play Southampton this evening.

Manchester United: Amos; Janko, Love, J.Evans, Vermijl; Pearson, Grimshaw; A.Pereira, Rothwell, Harrop; W.Keane

Manchester United’s under-21 side will be hoping to continue a fine start to the season when they take on Southampton away from home this evening.

United’s under-21 side is one of the strongest in the country and they currently sit top of Division One of the under-21 Premier League on the same number of points as Manchester City but with a game in hand.

United have the best goal difference in the top division by far which shows how effective their attack and defence has been in terms of working together to create a strong unit so far this season.

This match is a great opportunity for youngsters, and more experienced players, to grab the attention of Louis van Gaal, who will be mulling things over in the youth ranks on a daily basis.

United need to be wary because Southampton know they can go level on points with United with a win.
