‘Watch out how he will destroy Manchester City’s Midfield- Manchester United fans makes very important Kobbie Mainoo point after selection call

The highly-rated teenager was left out of the Premier League 2 squad vs Fulham on Friday night.

Manchester United supporters are backing highly-rated teenager Kobbie Mainoo to be involved in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford after the fit-again midfielder was omitted from the Premier League 2 squad for a 1-1 draw with Fulham on Friday night.Mainoo, who had picked up an ankle injury in pre-season, stepped up his comeback with an appearance for United in their UEFA Youth League defeat to FC Copenhagen on Tuesday afternoon. The 18-year-old played for 45 minutes in what was his first competitive game this campaign.However, with treble-winning neighbours Manchester City now on the horizon, United resisted the temptation to hand Mainoo further minutes for the next generation. So does that mean the Academy graduate is being pencilled in for involvement on Sunday afternoon?

Supporters certainly think so after spotting the Premier League 2 team news on X (formerly Twitter). The game itself ended in a draw in London.

Imani Lanquedoc opened the scoring for Fulham with a 26-minute strike. Sub Ethan Williams responded for United with last gasp leveller at Motspur Park.

Although things are looking brighter in the treatment room for United, they still have one or two fitness concerns for the Manchester derby. Casemiro (ankle) is among their biggest doubts on Sunday afternoon.The 31-year-old has missed the last two games due to injury and suspension. Should the Brazilian powerhouse have to sit out then Mainoo would naturally see his chances of involvement ramped-up. Here are a selection of comments to that exact tune from social media platform X.
