Former Manchester United midfielder Nicky Butt tips Angel Gomes and Mason Greenwood as the two youngsters most likely to break into the club's first XI this season.

Former Manchester United midfielder Nicky Butt has named Angel Gomes and Mason Greenwood as the two youngsters most likely to break into the club's first team this season.

The 44-year-old has a detailed knowledge of the players from his current role as head of first-team development and his previous post as head of the academy.

In a feature for Super 6 filmed with his Class of '92 teammates, Butt said: "I think Gomes could set alight this season and do really well, he's matured and got a lot stronger.

"Purely for the excitement and the fans I think Greenwood is going to be a real, real superstar if he keeps his feet on the ground, he's patient and he scores the goals that he can."

Both players featured heavily in pre-season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, scoring their first senior goals for United, while Greenwood came off the bench in the 4-0 win over Chelsea last weekend.
