Manchester United Reserves face Oldham Athletic in the semi-final of the Lancashire Senior Cup at Leigh Sports Village this evening, with the winners facing Everton in the final, which should be played in the coming weeks. United’s reserve side have played three matches in their pre-season thus far, winning twice; 2-1 against Altrincham and 5-1 against Salford City, also losing once; a 4-1 defeat to Port Vale. United retained the Barclays U21 Premier League last season, and as this match is in last season’s competition, could be close to completing a double. Oldham could field their first team in this match, especially after being beaten by United’s reserves in a 4-0 clash between the two sides in the Manchester Senior Cup in March. Here are the starting XI’s and list of substitutes for both teams this evening.
Riley, Tuanzebe, Poole, El Fitouri;
Redmond, Willock, Goss;
Olosunde, McTominay, Weir
Mitchell, O’Hara, Warren, Kehinde, Gribbin
