Predicted Starting XI For Manchester United U21s Clash

Hakeeb Adelakun

I might be wrong here, but I think Hakeeb could get one half tomorrow. I don’t think he’s fully match fit yet, and a runout against an Under 21 team is more like a training session than blood-and-thunder league action. I suspect he’ll get some minutes, perhaps even 60, before being replaced. Right now, we don’t have many options on the right-hand side, and if Hakeeb doesn’t play, it’ll likely be either Scully or Lasse Sorensen.

Dan Nlundulu

I thought Tom looked shattered against Bolton, and we desperately need him to sit out games like tomorrow. Long term, dan Nlundulu will put pressure on Tom up top, but he’s nowhere near sharp right now. That’s why he’ll surely start tomorrow, to get vital minutes as he edges towards full fitness and, hopefully, some Lincoln City goals.
