Angel Gomes, who won the Youth Team Player of the Year award earlier this week, is set to make his Manchester United debut this afternoon.
With Jose Mourinho keen to keep the team injury-free ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final, he has revealed he has spoken to Nicky Butt about which academy players he should field against Crystal Palace.
Gomes is one of the players the manager has named and Gomes has been in his first team training this week. If he players, he will be the youngest player to run out for United since Duncan Edwards.
