Three Academy kids could face Palace
Ole has dropped a major hint that Angel Gomes, Jimmy Garner and Tahith Chong may all be in the squad on Wednesday...
I have faith in all of my boys “We'll have a good team out on the pitch, definitely. There'll be a chance for others. I've been sat on the outside getting a chance when this has happened, so we'd rather have to say players who came in. Scott [McTominay], Andy [Andreas Pereira], I thought they did fantastic [against Liverpool], so there you go, that's the way it is. You've just got to be ready when you get it.” Gomes, Garner and Chong might play “They've been part of our training for a long time now and I'm sure Angel has been successful with England with the under-17s, there with Sancho and Hudson-Odoi and Foden, so he's been a big part of that. I’m definitely sure that if he gets a chance he'll do well. Jimmy Garner, he's a Michael Carrick but 20 years younger, so I'm sure he'll do well and Chongy, he'll definitely be taking people on if he comes on. But they're ready, they're kids. It's hard when you're a defender coming on, if you're 16 or 17, but as an attacker you just go out there and express yourself, and there's your chance. They can win you the game, they don't lose it for you.”
