Solskjaer vows to play 19-year-old buzzing talent against West Ham

Manchester United will face West Ham for the second time running, but this time around, it’s a Carabao Cup fixture.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he’d rotate his squad for this game, and he has revealed that youngster Anthony Elanga will be part of the squad to face the Hammers.

The academy product made his senior debut back in May and featured in United’s Premier League matches against Aston Villa and Wolves.

However, the young talent has been reduced to playing U23 football this season due to the signing of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Solskjaer has now revealed that he has been impressed with the buzzing winger and that the Swedish International could be given a chance against West Ham on Wednesday night.

“Anthony was terrific in pre-season – his attitude, his enthusiasm, his directness. I love to see players like this,” Solskjaer told Manchester United FC.

“He was disappointed not to travel down to West Ham [for Sunday’s Premier League game] but he scored for the Under-23s and now he’s ready. He’ll be involved in the squad.”
