Ole: We want to develop Anthony, Marcus and Mason

Our manager, who netted 126 times as a player for the club, was also directly asked about the front three of Martial, Rashford and Greenwood. 

“Well, they are top players and I think any of the top teams, if they lose one, two or three of their forwards, their creators, the ones who make the difference – of course that can be an issue,“ said Ole.

”But then that gives a chance to anyone else that believes they should be playing more, to stake a claim. Those three that you mentioned: Mason, Marcus and Anthony, they had a fantastic season last year. We want to develop them of course, together as a three.

The game would at least finish on a positive note, with two goals in the closing stages –a sidefooted effort from Hannibal that left Winterbottom static and a neat McCann finish, to complete a well-crafted team move.

Yorke working with United Under-23s

Yorke will appreciate more than most that a game with Liverpool at any level is one to relish, he scored against them in the 2-2 Premier League draw at Anfield in 1999 and the famous FA Cup victory in the same year, equalising late on before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dramatic winner.

United will face a real challenge in Premier League 2, following promotion last term, with a number of key players moved out on loan to further their development. It means Wood is working with a youthful squad, as shown by the fact that 16-year-old Shola Shoretire came off the bench to make his Under-23s debut in the opener against Leicester City.
