Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Brandon Williams’ impact on the rest of his Manchester United youth teammates.
“I think the performances of Brandon have been a big, big plus. Not just for him, not just me, but for Ethan today, who’s played with Brandon through the years.
“So, for me, it’s also a big boost for Ethan because we’ve got many, many full-backs, loads of them who compete. I’ve been very pleased with Brandon, he scored a great goal, so let’s see where they’re at. Great to have Luke through 90 minutes today and let’s see for Sunday.”
Speaking about Axel Tuanzebe, Solskjaer added, “Axel could give the team talk, that’s for sure!” Solskjaer joked. “Axel has done fantastic, he got 90 minutes tonight and he got 10 minutes against Sheffield United as well.
“He’s fit now and available and I thought he did well against Astana. He gives me another headache but it’s a good headache to have players coming back, because we have suffered with injuries badly. Now we’re getting more and more back and it will only help us.
“I’ve watched Villa a few times, they were unlucky not to get away with the points against Liverpool and we’re the only ones who’ve managed that, so we know how difficult that is. And I think they’ve done really well.”
