Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong could make his Premier League debut against Fulham after he was included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad to face the Cottagers. The 19-year-old made his first team bow earlier this season in a 2-0 win against Reading in the FA Cup at Old Trafford.
Chong was an unnamed substitute in United’s 1-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions League in October under Jose Mourinho but is yet to make his debut in the league.
However, the winger’s wait could finally be over as he was pictured with United’s squad that boarded a train in Manchester for London today.
Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba are all in the squad
Solskjaer is expected to rotate his side at Craven Cottage as United embark on a gruelling period where they’ll face five fixtures in 19 days.
United host Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday before taking on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup next Monday.
Victor Lindelof was a notable absentee from the 20-man squad taken down to London and United fans will be hoping he is simply being rested ahead of the tie against Thomas Tuchel’s men.
Fred, Andreas Pereira, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia were also missing.
