Picture: Manchester United duo promoted to first-team training ahead of Fenerbahce away

It feels like Christmas come early for Manchester United fans over the last twenty-four hours, with Jose Mourinho bringing Bastian Schweinsteiger back to first-team training for he first time of the season, as well as Henrikh Mkhitaryan being involved.

On top of that, though, we also saw two talented youngsters in the mix which was brilliant – with Axel Tuanzebe and Joe Riley put through their paces with the senior squad ahead of United’s trip to Fenerbahce on Thursday.

Tuanzebe, 18, is an extremely talented centre-back with the world literally at his feet. Somehow, he hasn’t made his full debut at the Theatre of Dreams yet, but you feel if he keeps playing the way he is for the youth team, it won’t be long whatsoever.

Joe Riley is a 19-year-old from Blackpool. He is predominantly a midfielder but has been playing left-back at times for the club. Once again, he is a supreme talent who has a couple of substitute appearances under his belt against both FC Midtjylland and Shrewsbury Town.
