Facundo Pellistri’s stocks are rising with each passing week as the Uruguayan closes in on becoming a regular first-team starter.
Ten Hag introduced him to the squad in the second half of last season and although he is still mainly being restricted to second-half cameos, he is impressing supporters with his impact from the bench.
The former Penarol star made headlines this week in Uruguay’s win over Argentina and it’s easy to see why if you take a look at his personal highlights below.
Pellistri was expected to start the game against Luton last week, having been involved in the move that forced the winner at Fulham the previous week and generally having a positive influence.
United are continuing to struggle in the final third this season and Pellistri could be the player that breaks the mould.
