Sir Alex is once again likely to give a number of his budding stars valuable first team experience in Tuesday night's Carling Cup fourth round tie at Barnsley. But which of the young hopefuls will the fans be keeping a close eye on this season?
“Danny Welbeck is the best of the bunch and I think he would be really good upfront with Rooney. I’m sure he will become a big star. He says he wants to be a legend at the club like Giggs and I believe he can be.”
“Based on his performances at the end of last season Kiko Macheda is the one that stands out. The fact he had the arrogance to turn and shoot like he did against Villa shows he is something special. To try something like that on your debut takes some guts.”

“The stand out one for me is Jonny Evans. It’s difficult to say who is the best talent out of all the young lads because we have such a great group. The da Silva twins are exciting to watch, and I’d like to see Darron Gibson given more of an opportunity because he possesses great quality.”
