Tahith Chong scored a stunning solo goal in Manchester United u23’s clash against Reading at the Madejski Stadium last night.
With the scoreline finely poised at 2-1 to the Reds, the winger put the game beyond Reading’s reach with an unstoppable curling effort after cutting inside from the right-wing.
Neil Wood’s side eventually ran out 4-1 winners in the Premier League 2 Division 2 game.
Chong’s involvement on Monday evening means that it is unlikely that we will see him in the Carabao Cup quarter-final at home to League 2 Colchester on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old Dutchman has yet to make his mark in the first-team at Old Trafford, despite many standout performances in the youth setup.
Solskjaer is expected to make several changes against Colchester, with Mason Greenwood expected to start after he salvaged the Reds a draw against Everton on Sunday.
It may be most beneficial for Chong’s career to move out on loan in January, so he can gain more invaluable experience of regular first-team football.

How about that for a goal? 🎯
