Video: New signing Pellistri assists Shoretire as Man Utd U23s take lead vs Tottenham

A stunning cross from Facundo Pellistri set up Shola Shoretire as Manchester United U23s took the lead over Tottenham.

Summer signing Pellistri has been training with the first team, although he is yet to make an appearance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It will benefit the Uruguayan to gain experience from youth football in England before making the big step up. After all, he’s still a youngster himself.

The delivery for the goal was perfect and he showed a great degree of acceleration before getting his cross in.

Shola Shoretire does well to get power behind his head and guide it past the Tottenham goalkeeper.

Hopefully Pellistri can do his consistently at youth level this season and push for a place in the first team.
