Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Facundo Pellestri will make his debut tonight for the U23s.

Pellistri, Brandon Williams and Marcos Rojo are all set to feature for Neil Wood's side as they take on Everton at Leigh Sports Village from 7pm.

Solskjaer gave an update on how he's moved players between squads and a hint over tonight's team news.

“It is a different bubble so, with the current regulations, they can't go on the same coach, they can't be in the same dressing room, with all the testing and things," Solskjaer told MUTV.

“That's complicated things a little bit but, then again, if we take precautions and they travel by themselves and if they're not in the dressing room or in the meeting, which isn't great for a coach not to have his whole team.

“But tonight we'll have a few [playing]. Facundo will play tonight to get his first taste of English football, Marcos Rojo will play because he needs to build up his fitness and Brandon's going to play. He needs minutes as well.

"He's a played a little bit this season and for the Under-21s for England and for us, but just needs to keep that match fitness then we know they're ready for next week."
