Manchester United take on Stoke City tomorrow, with Jose Mourinho looking to secure back-to-back Premier League wins after two losses in a row in that competition. The game won’t be easy, and the Potters always prove to be a tough opponent when they play at the Theatre of Dreams.
Ahead of the game, Jose Mourinho put his players through their paces for one last time, and there was a surprise inclusion thrown in the mix. Young Matty Willock was spotted with the rest of the first-team for the first time, as well as both RoShaun Williams and Axel Tuanzebe involved.
This is great by Jose, and it shows that he does have a willingness to utilise youth if they prove to be good enough. Tuanzebe looks like a huge talent, and Jose obviously likes the look of the 19-year-old midfielder Matty Willock too.
Perhaps the cup competitions is their best hope of getting on the field for Manchester United, or even a loan move away from Old Trafford would be a good option to play regularly.
