According to Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils could turn to some of their youth stars in their final game of the season against Crystal Palace.

Ralf Rangnick’s side are currently sixth in the Premier League and look set to qualify for next season’s UEFA Europa League. They could however finish seventh, qualifying for the UEFA Conference League should they lose to Palace and West Ham United win both of their remaining games.

There is little otherwise for the Red Devils to fight for in what has been a rather disappointing season. The game also gives them the opportunity to test out a few talented youngsters.

That certainly appears to be in the offing. Three Man United youngsters, Alvaro Fernandez, Shola Shoretire and Teden Mengi were all involved in the club’s senior training sessions. This could hint at them playing some role in our game against Palace.

Of the trio, Shoretire and Mengi have already earned their senior debuts. The former in particular made history when he became the youngest player to represent the club in Europe under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Mengi too has had his opportunities but has failed to showcase anything special. He enjoyed loan spells at Derby County and Birmingham City but saw injuries play spoilsport.

19-year-old Fernandez is yet to make his senior bow for the club. The youngster won the club’s Under-23 Player of the Season and appears set for a bright future. Whether he will enjoy a night to remember against Palace and be rewarded for his hard work this season remains to be seen.
