16-year-old Joe Hugill’s electric debut at Manchester United academy continued with a second-half goal in the Reds 3-3 draw with Arsenal’s Under-23s

Arnau Puigmal, meanwhile, came back from injury to make an immediate impact with two goals either side of half-time

United faced an Arsenal side with a lot of experience The Gunners gave opportunities to first-team players Cedric Soares, Reiss Nelson, Emile Smith-Rowe, Joe Willock and William Saliba

Puigmal put United in the lead after just three minutes, but a free kick from Nelson leveled things up. United’s Catalan midfielder also scored early in the second half, leaping on the lost ball after a missed penalty and a conversion

Joe Hugill scored soon after for his fifth goal of the season The 2003-born center forward joined Sunderland this summer and scored a brace in his Under-18 debut in mid-September

His arrival in the Under-23s at such a young age is the result of United’s decision to loan a number of key and top players from the squad

Hugill is one of many young teens who were promoted to under 23 at an early stage The benefit to his development could be huge

Hugill will slowly start to gain weight over the next few seasons, but he has already shown his quality with his two feet. The example of Mason Greenwood will serve as motivation for Hugill

Despite suggestions earlier in the week that Axel Tuanzebe could recover from his injury in Saturday’s midday game against Arsenal, the England defender was not involved

Tuanzebe suffered multiple setbacks last season after first impressing in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team His last senior game was in 2019

Some have suggested that Harry Maguire’s terrible display for England last week could see him come out of the firing line by Solskjaer It would leave room for Tuanzebe to be brought back

Even though it was an Under-23 game, very few of United’s starting players were even over 18

Will Fish (17) and Teden Mengi (18) formed the central defensive duo and United were led by Hannibal Mejbri (17), Shola Shoretire (16), Anthony Elanga (18) and Hugill (16)

Good result for a United side that only had 2 players with over 20 appearances in under 23 against an experienced Arsenal side https: // tco / nNwUkiDbky

Looks like last season’s FA Youth Cup squad Many of these players will be involved when United end their FA Youth Cup campaign

The final stages of the tournament (semi-finals and final) will be played at St George’s Park and United must beat Chelsea to advance to the final Mengi was captain of the team last season and could return there to try to achieve a first tournament victory for United since 2011
