Spurs Under 21’s versus Manchester United: (match preview)

Spurs’ Under 21 side face Manchester United at Stevenage’s Lamex Stadium (the game starts at 12:00pm) in a Premier League 2 fixture on Saturday. Wayne Burnett’s side recorded a 1-1 draw with Fulham last Saturday, in what was a game that they were unfortunate not to have won. Manchester United are currently in 11th place in the Premier League 2 Division One, after picking up nine points from ten league games this season. They are of course a good team at this level, and with talented players such as Shola Shoretire, Isak Hansen-Aaroen and support player and former Spurs player Tom Huddlestone in their side, this will be a difficult game for Spurs. Unfortunately central defender Alfie Dorrington, who has started a good number of games for the Spurs Under 21 side recently, had to be substituted against Sporting Clube de Portugal on Wednesday because of injury, in a UEFA Youth League fixture. I will of course be in attendance for the Manchester United match tomorrow, and I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the match.

My predicted lineup: (4-3-3) Keeley, Cesay, Muir, Fagan-Walcott, Abbott, Lyons-Foster, Craig (c), Devine, Mundle, Donley, Santiago.

Subs from: Maguire, McKnight, John, Robson, Mathurin.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: Alfie Dorrington.

Previous meeting: 1-1.

My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.

My one to watch: Charlie Savage (19). The central midfielder (son of Robbie Savage) is a midfielder who likes to get on the ball in the central areas of the pitch, and he has an impressive passing range. I have been impressed whenever I have seen him in the past.
