Early team news: Anthony Elanga rumoured to start vs Brentford

Early whispers on social media suggest Anthony Elanga will start tonight’s game against Brentford in the Premier League.

Several people who we trust have suggested that Elanga will make his second start on the bounce in the league tonight, with the Muppetiers and Webby being amongst them. The team won’t be confirmed until 7pm so this could be early team news.

Elanga came close twice against Aston Villa in the 2-2 draw on Saturday while producing a positive display down the flanks.

After a lively cameo against the same opponents in the FA Cup third round at Old Trafford, interim manager Ralf Rangnick called him into the starting line-up and has sung his praises to headline-hungry reporters.

There is a buzz around the 19-year-old at the moment because this is another youngster who has risen through the ranks of the famous Academy at Carrington.

United are likely to set-up in a 4-3-3 formation with Elanga positioned in the front three out wide.
