Confirmed Manchester United U21s XI vs Arsenal at Old Trafford

Manchester United’s U21s take on Arsenal at Old Trafford in the Premier League 2 tonight.

The game will kick-off at 7pm and it will be shown live on MUTV.

The Reds were defeated 6-0 in the Manchester derby two weeks ago and Mark Dempsey will be hoping for a response in another big fixture for the youngsters.

United had gone eight games undefeated prior to that.

Manchester United U21s XI vs Arsenal: Harrison, Kingdon, Kambwala, Jackson, Murray, Gore, Huddlestone, Emeran, Forson, Williams, Mejia.

Bench: Mee, Jurado, Wellens, Hansen, Norkett.

Speaking about the match, Academy coach Travis Binnion urged the U21 side to soak it up.

“Ultimately, it’s where they eventually want to play [Old Trafford],” Binnion told club media. “It’s everyone’s goal to play there eventually so to get any opportunity to play there in their development years is key.

“Just to soak it all up, put a performance in and gain that confidence from playing there. We were fortunate last season to play five of the six [FA Youth Cup] games [at Old Trafford] and obviously the crowds were good throughout, but the final was a magnificent turnout.

“It won’t be overawing, it won’t be too big of a shock to them, and that’s ultimately what we want.”
