Fans all saying the same thing as Tom Huddlestone stars for Man Utd U21s and bags assist for dramatic late equaliser

MANCHESTER UNITED fans were to quick to praise Tom Huddlestone after he played a vital role for the Under-21s as they drew with Fleetwood.

The former England international signed for United U21s as a player-coach in the summer.

Tom Huddlestone produced a brilliant late assist to help his side to a draw
Huddlestone has appeared in every Papa John’s Trophy game this season

He has made three appearances for the side in the Papa John’s Trophy, including against Fleetwood on Tuesday.

Huddlestone was brought on from the bench in the second half and made the desired impact as he assisted Shola Shoretire’s late equaliser.

The youngster finished clinically but it was Huddlestone’s vision that created the chance.

The 35-year-old received the ball outside the box and with bodies crowding the penalty area he fizzed a ball into Shoretire’s feet, who did the rest by finding the bottom corner.

United fans were impressed by Huddlestone’s skill and some jokingly asked when he will be given a chance in the first-team.

One supporter wrote: “Tom Huddlestone should get a spot in the first team soon? Fantastic talent.”

Another added: “Promote Huddlestone to first-team.”

And a third said: “Huddlestone clear of Fred 😭.”

Huddlestone has also featured for the U21 side in Premier League 2 and made a substitute appearance against Carlisle in August.

And in last month’s match at Barrow he also produced a wonderful assist for Alejandro Garancho’s winner, which also prompted fans to jokingly call for him to be promoted to the senior squad.
