United U21s face Boro

Manchester United's Under-21s entertain Middlesbrough on Monday night with the league game switched from Old Trafford to the AJ Bell Stadium.

Warren Joyce's champions won at Southampton in a first outing of 2014 but still face a long battle to climb the table given the number of fixtures in hand on most of the other clubs. The return of several loanees has presented the Reserves coach with a large squad again containing plenty of options.

The need to give game time to the more experienced figures will be balanced by the desire to blood members of the Under-19 squad that competed in the UEFA Youth League. Jesse Lingard scored at Southampton, with a contender for Goal of the Month, but has been in and around the first-team squad of late and might not feature with the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg against Sunderland on the horizon.

Boro currently sit in 17th place in the table, eight places below United, but defeated Arsenal 3-1 in their last outing. The Teessiders also have been involved in some high-scoring games and it should be an entertaining affair in front of the live MUTV cameras.

Blackett should have scored. Good play from Fabio to create the chance.

Something must be going on behind the scenes for Zaha to be on the bench in the U21s.
