Ashley Young and Phil Jones start as Manchester United entertain Chelsea at Old Trafford this evening in a crucial fixture in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League.
Young has been out since January due to a serious groin injury and after being an unused substitute for Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Everton, Louis van Gaal has decided to give the versatile midfielder a run-out with the under-21’s in order to regain some match fitness.
Jones on the other hand has recently returned to training following a foot injury that he sustained back in January and the defender is also looking to get some minutes under his belt this evening.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Johnstone, Riley, Williams, Jones, Borthwick-Jackson, McNair, Love, Varela, Young, A. Pereira, Weir.
Subs: J. Pereira, El Fitouri, Rothwell, Redmond, McTominay.
Beeney; Dabo, Tomori, Clarke-Salter, Aina; Colkett, Ali; Quintero, Palmer, Mitchell; Abraham.
Subs: Feruz, Baxter, Sammut, Colley.
