If Antony was out for any length of time I wouldn't want either of them to start on the right, Elanga is better on the left or centrally, and a traffic cone would be more useful than Sancho because he hasn't got the pace or skillset to play there.
I'm sure he's watched Garnacho for the same period of time as well, and finding, as all the Managers since SAF, that sticking kids in is getting harder and harder to do when every result counts. One defeat and the club is in crisis ....
Sancho played very well for Dortmund there when he broke through. I tend to agree on Elanga, personally I don't think he'll make the grade at Utd and will probably be out on loan next season to get regular playing time. Not sure what is going on with Amad he's got himself into the Sunderland team this season so maybe next season he comes back and gets a chance.
You can't just keep kids around Pellistri is stuck in that no mans land between being to good for U21 football but not good enough for first team football.
These young kids need to be playing regularly at this age.
I agree it's very tough to blood youngsters especially in a side that isn't dominating games and winning comfortably which makes the decision to spend so much on Pellistri an odd one. Pellistri has been on the bench quite a bit this season but he's yet to come on in any of the games suggests to me the manager doesn't really fancy him.
At some point the club has to make decisions on these kids we can't keep them all Pellistri to me looks like one that will likely go on loan in January and if he did well Utd would probably look to sell like they did with Garner and they will do with Henderson this summer.
Anyway how is he doing in this game?
