What a week it has been for young Tom Thorpe. The 21-year old U21 captain made his Manchester United debut from off the bench this weekend, and tonight he scored the winner as United’s U21s beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1. He put away a bullet header after an excellent cross from Adnan Januzaj.
Januzaj also managed to get on the scoresheet himself, with a stunning free-kick from the tightest of angles – check it out here.
