CONFIRMED: Goss, Tuanzebe, Poole and McTominay start against Chelsea

Manchester United face Chelsea at Aldershot Town in the Premier League 2 this evening, the last league match of 2016. United are looking for some inspiration after stuttering in recent weeks. A draw with Reading in their last match turned the results around slightly from a 2-0 defeat to Sunderland the week before. United missing an out-and-out striker in the team is a big problem, something which needs to be looked into as soon as the January transfer window opens as that will help the side change their fortunes. There is some talent in the U18’s this season, but breaking them up when they are playing so well as a team currently will cause more damage than good for United. United may be down, but they are not out this season. The chances of them retaining their title, which they have kept for the past two seasons is very slim, but I doubt the players will stop trying. The U18’s gelling as a team is good news as in a few years, they will be in this age group, possibly ripping the league apart. Here are the starting XI and list of substitutes for both teams this evening.

Manchester United:

O’Hara;

Olosunde, Tuanzebe, Poole, Scott;

Goss, Redmond;

Mitchell, Willock, Harrop;

McTominay

Substitutes:

Doughty, M. Johnstone, Kehinde, Barlow, Boonen

Chelsea:

Collins;

Dabo, Chalobah, Tomori;

Sterling, Quintero, Van Ginkel, Scott, Da Silva;

Mount, Igbo

Substitutes:

Muheim, Thompson, Sammut, Maddox, Colley
