Manchester United fans can expect to get a first glimpse of new signing Facundo Pellistri tonight when the Reds’ U23s face Everton in the Premier League 2.
Pellistri, 18, was an unused sub on Tuesday night when United started their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win over PSG.
The Uruguayan winger joined United on deadline day from CA Penarol, just months after playing under Solskjaer’s former teammate Diego Forlan.
According to Manchester Evening News reporter Tyrone Marshall, Pellistri is set to feature for United’s U23s later on this evening when they take on Everton.

Some senior players are expected to join Pellistri in the team, too, as per The Athletic, with Marcos Rojo and Brandon Williams also tipped to get minutes on the pitch.
The U23 squad this season is very young but it was always going to be a challenging campaign with the likes of James Garner and Dylan Levitt out on loan.
Hopefully the added experience helps Neil Wood’s side tonight and they can clinch a much needed win.
Rojo has not played for United since November and it remains to be seen
