Manchester United's Under-23s have provided must-see entertainment in our last two fixtures, and will look to sparkle again when Arsenal provide the opposition on Friday night.

The Premier League 2 clash at Leigh Sports Village, which kicks off at 19:00 GMT, is live on MUTV, as Neil Wood's side face the highly regarded Gunners, with only two points separating the sides in the table.

Under-23s go goal crazy!

See the goals from the Under-23s' incredible 6-4 victory over Blackburn on Friday...

After a 6-3 win at Liverpool, the young Reds followed it up with a remarkable 6-4 success against Blackburn Rovers last week, despite being 4-2 down in the second half.

Amad has impressed in both games and we await to see if he is involved again, after he was handed a first spot on the senior bench for the Emirates FA Cup win over West Ham United on Tuesday.

Joe Hugill is leading scorer with nine goals, following his header against Blackburn, but Anthony Elanga, who has six strikes to his name this term, is set to remain sidelined with a collarbone injury.

Shola Shoretire will come into the game on the back of scoring a hat-trick, signing his first professional contract with the club and training with the first team.

Hannibal was subjected to some tough challenges again in the Rovers game and could be a doubt, as are Will Fish and Arnau Puigmal. Striker D'Mani Mellor is also still out.

Follow all the action live on MUTV as it happens.
