Uruguayan star Facundo Pellistri has had to settle for a spot in Man United’s under-23 squad since his arrival, but you can tell he’s too good for this level.
He scored a fine goal tonight against Southampton U23 when he breaks the offside trap and sends the goalkeeper down the wrong path as he shoves the ball into the near post:
