Eight changes were made by Jose Mourinho to the team which won the first leg of their Europe League semi-final.

Axel Tuanzebe, teenage captain of United's reserve team, was the odd man out, selected at right back to make his first senior start and Premier League debut.

Tuanzebe, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and schooled in Rochdale, soon showed why he is tipped for a future in the game as he eased in at right back.

A playing opportunity were given to Scott McTominay, a 20-year-old midfielder making his debut.

Five graduates of the Manchester United academy featured in the game.

It is a timely reminder of the quality as the club prepare for another summer spending spree. Hopefully there will be more chances for Tuanzebe next season.

Jose Mourinho has called up Matthew Olosunde, Demetri Mitchell and Matty Willock to his squad for Manchester United's visit to Arsenal.

Mourinho joked last week that Arsene Wenger would be pleased with his team selection owing to the amount of games United have had to play in recent weeks and the toll it has taken on his injury-hit squad.

American defender Olosunde, 19, Mitchell, 20 and Willock, also 20, have been joined by Scott McTominay on the trip to London, who was called up to the squad last weekend against Swansea.
