Which Man United youth players could benefit from the clubs injury crisis?
Manchester United’s injury crisis has rolled on, with Daley Blind, David de Gea, Angel di Maria and Luke Shaw amongst those now waiting in line in the crowded treatment room.

Daley Blind’s knee injury suddenly means that Pearson is on the fringes of the first team.
The 19-year-old is a rugged presence in central midfield, who will relish the opportunity afforded by Blind’s absence and the decline of Darren Fletcher.
