BETTER THE DEVILS YOU KNOW

1 January 2015

Manchester United are coming to Yeovil this Sunday for an FA Cup Third Round game and whilst their side is full of world renowned stars, they could bring some unfamiliar faces not yet household names.

Here at YTFC.net we have had a look at the crop of stars who could grace the Huish Park turf this weekend.

Goalkeeper
Anders Lindegaard


The Danish ‘keeper joined Manchester United from Norwegian side Aalesund in 2011 and for the vast majority of his time at Old Trafford has been David De Gea’s back up.

Lindegaard has made just 29 first team appearances and was a regular in cup competitions under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Due to a De Gea injury during the 2012/13 season the international stopper had a run of five games as the number one, a run which included a win over Liverpool and a Champions League tie against Galatasaray.
 
Defender
Tyler Blackett

 

Louis Van Gaal has used this young defender a number of times in the Premier League this season following a number of defensive problems with his first choice back line.

Injury, suspension and outward bound transfers left United light in defence and Blackett’s versatility at either full back or in the centre of defence led him to a string of decent performances.

Blackett has represented England Under 21s once and enjoyed loan spells at Blackpool and Birmingham last season.

Fellow Under 21 defender Paddy McNair has also impressed and could also be involved at Huish Park this weekend.

Midfielder
Andreas Pereira

 

18 year-old Pereira is a Belgian youth international who has been a mainstay of the Man United development side this season.

Having joined United at the end of the 2010/11 season from PSV Eindhoven the midfielder has progressed through the youth ranks and made his first team bow in the Capital One Cup against MK Dons in November.

Pereria is rated highly and has represented both his country of birth, Belgium, at youth level, but also Brazil Under 20s.

He took Adnan Januzaj’s number 44 shirt when his fellow countryman took Ryan Giggs’ number 11 this season.

Attacker
James Wilson

 

It takes quite a talent to keep the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie and Falcao out of the Premier League side, but young James Wilson has already notched up ten first team appearances and two goals during his relatively short time in the Man United first team set up.

Capped by England up to Under 20s level, Wilson has spent his entire career at Old Trafford.

The young striker made his debut in quite some style, scoring twice in a 3-1 win over Hull City. A game which saw the recently recalled

Tom Lawrence make his first bow in a United shirt just after a loan spell with Yeovil Town.

With stars like Jonny Evans and Angel Di Maria looking for some game time during their return from injury so the young stars named above could be mixed in with some of the biggest names in world football.

Huish Park is a sell out on the day, but you can still listen in with a subscription to Glovers Player, watch the game on BT Sport and make sure you visit the club store to get your merchandise, including specially branded home shirts.
