MNU vs WHU: 4 Man United teenagers who may play in tomorrow cup game against West Ham

Manchester United will be welcoming West Ham United to Old Trafford for another match tomorrow, which is just over three days after they secured a 2-1 league victory over the same opposition at the London Stadium, but the game will be in the English League Cup competition this time around.

This will be a perfect opportunity for Solskjaer to give playing time to the fringe players in his squad and some of the youngsters who are playing for the youth team.

Here, we will be having a look at four Manchester United teenagers who might get the chance to play either from the beginning of the game or from the bench.

1. Anthony Elanga.

Anthony Elanga, a 19 years old Swedish youngster who plays for the Manchester United youth team, has always been on the fringe of the first team and he is likely to feature against West Ham United tomorrow.

The young winger featured prominently for Manchester united in their preseason games. He scored a goal in just 2 league appearances for the first team last season.

2. Shola Maxwell Shoretire.

Shola Shoretire has already made 2 league appearances for the Manchester United first-team just like Elanga, he will no doubt be included in the squad to face West Ham.

The 17 years old English striker is unlikely to start the game, considering the quality of the opposition, but he could come off the bench towards the end.

3. Joe Hugill.

Joe Hugill trained with the Manchester United first team during preseason, and he was featured in two of their games.

The 17 years old striker might also be included in the squad, and probably come from the bench if the game goes as planned.

4. Mason Greenwood.

Mason Greenwood is already a regular member of the Manchester United first-team squad but he is still a teenager.

The 19 years old English striker has featured in every league game for the club this season, and he is expected to start tomorrow League Cup game against West Ham United.
