All of the sudden, Manchester United’s squad is looking extremely thin in a key area of the field…
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now be without both Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard for the foreseeable future, starting with the Red Devils’ FA Cup game against Chelsea this Monday.
With Alexis Sanchez struggling, Juan Mata lacking in pace and Romelu Lukaku on the fringes, that leaves Solskjaer with a huge problem. With that in mind, it could well be time to delve deep into the academy and make use of the talents that we’ve helped develop ourselves.
According to the Manchester Evening News’ Samuel Luckhurst, Solskjaer has stated that both Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong could make the squad for the clash at Stamford Bridge.
With Mason Greenwood also injured, this is a prime opportunity for these two guys to show Solskjaer what they can do on a huge stage.
Chong and Gomes have both seen the field this term, they both have huge futures. In a game of this magnitude when the eyes of the footballing world will be on them, there is a real chance to see what they’re truly made of.
