Will be interesting to see if we field a young team with one eye on Thursday. Then again young players can recover well in three days.

Looks to be a good player this lad, will he get in the team before Gomes?
He’s developed tremendously while at United. Well Gomes’ situation is tricky because of the contract ”dispute” and I think that is showing in his performances this season. Think Largie could get some time on Thursday and perhaps in the League Cup.

That’s not a bad lineup for a U23 match. Devine’s injury keeps him out so it looks like Mengi will play on the left.

no Levitt so he must be in the squad for Thursday. Shame about Devine. He looks such a talented left back

Will it not be Laird on the left and Mengi or Taylor on the right maybe? Which is Mengi's preferred foot?

The injury is not as bad as it first seemed, should be back soon.

Levitt didn't play against Tranmere either so might be injured. Don't think he's rested for Alkmaar, if he was fit he would've played here I think.

Gomes down injured, looks like Brunt caught his ankle accidentally.

Will Angel Gomes play in this one? I think he's been separated or something from the first team.

About bloody time 1-1 Ramazani hammers home from 14 yards after a corner is headed straight out to him

Penalty for West Brom. Ramazani got a touch on the ball too, but looked like clear contact with the ankle. Kovar saves!

Penalty WBA - Ramazani with a stupid tackle...takes the ball and the man. Kovar saves the penalty

Willock missed the penalty - probably been the best player on the pitch. Be surprised if Arsenal don't take him back in january.

We should find a good loan for Kovar next season, developing into one heck of a goalkeeper.

Never thought about how similar Fletcher and McKenna look - until I saw them in the same Picture :)

2-1 Mellor - horrible defending. Ball is passed back to the keeper with 2 United-players pressing him and the keeper hammers the ball towards Mellor and into the ball. Needless to say that pass back to the goalkeeper was not a nice one :)

Brilliant pressing from Ramazani and Mellor though. Nice to get a reward for that.
