Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly promoted five academy players to his first-team squad ahead of Tuesday's fixture with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
United will head into second position in the Premier League standings if they can get the better of Nuno Espirito Santo's side at Old Trafford.
While Solskjaer is expected to make few changes to his starting lineup, the Manchester Evening News says that the Norwegian has taken the opportunity to assess the progress of some of the club's younger players.
United face fixtures with Aston Villa, Manchester City and Watford in three different competitions during the first nine days of 2021.
Summer arrival Pellistri and 19-year-old defender Laird are most likely to feature among the replacements for at least one of those games.
