Kick off at 7pm BST
Live on MUTV
Quintuple is on.
Will be interesting to see if any of the tour lads play in this one! Could be good experience for them!
Oh shit didn't realise this was tonight. Hope can get tickets on the door.
Good that it's live on MUTV.
Btw anyone knows the squad for this game?
Completely disagree with PL academies being in this but anyway... what are the rules regarding eligibility?
Assume Gomes, Chong and Greenwood will play. Perhaps Dalot will play at right back.
Will Ole have any say on who plays? Assume he’d want Lee Grant to get 90 minutes in a competitive game.
According the the united website....
"The rules are a little complicated but state we must have at least six of the starting XI aged 21 or under by 30 June this year, and no more than two players who are over 21 and have made more than 40 appearances for the first team (either in the XI or as a playing substitute) - again, as of 30 June. "
According to those rules, I reckon Sanchez qualifies

I can't complain. I get to watch more of Gomes, Laird, Garner, and O'Connor.
Where's Mason Greenwood?
So that’s Greenwood confirmed for Chelsea - right?
No Greenwood. That's good.
Probably on the bench for sure.
What are you talking about, he just scored belter of a FK with left foot against Newcastle on MUTV. Bite
I really want to watch this. But don’t have an MUTV subscription. Just saying, like...
Looking forward to this.
Can watch youth games knowing full well they have a chance to be seen in the first team with Butt and Ole (phelan too) in charge
Work in Rotherham was confused when I was walking to the station only to meet a group of pissed middle aged men singing the Maguire song.
Anyone have a river? One I have is crap
Up the Millers!
It would be nice to have a river
Chong should have scored there
So this means gomes won't be involved on Sunday but Greenwood probably will be.
Laird looks a powerful runner.
Could have scored 2 already here. Rotherham had a chance too.
I like that they have the same squad numbers as they most probably will have in the first team, as well as the same formation.
We are really playing good football...by far the better side
Yeah. Struggling to deal with physicality but playing some good football.
U23s are also playing 4-2-3-1.
Pretty even game so far. They are roughing up our lads a little bit. Chong should have scored though.
Its good that they are getting kicked a bit - something they have to get used to
This game is infinitely more useful than the U23 league! Really enjoying seeing the young lads against seasoned pros
Close from Gomes
They have impressed me I'll be honest.
Laird in particular
Players don't get kicked like that in the Top tier anymore.
Gomes, Garner, and Laird have been our best players. Followed by Chong and Williams.
So good by Gomes there.
Not sure what you guys have been watching. It’s been pretty abysmal so far from our lads. Gomes has been probably the best of a poor bunch and that’s not even by saying a lot
Gomes touch is crazy
Hm...you didn't watch the Spurs-game did you ?
Quality by Gomes that.
Only had it on for five minutes but Garner has impressed me a lot already.
