FA Cup: Diallo to make shock Man Utd debut against West Ham

Amad Diallo could make his Manchester United debut against West Ham in the FA Cup.

The 18-year-old starlet was included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s match-day squad for the fifth round clash.

The Ivorian wonderkid was pictured this afternoon arriving at the team hotel with Man Utd boss Solskjaer.

He has impressed for the U23s since his £37m move from Atalanta last month and is in line for a senior debut.

Paul Pogba will miss the tie and faces a few weeks on the sidelines after picking up a muscle injury against Everton.

Solskjaer also confirmed his side will be without defenders Eric Bailly and Phil Jones as they look to seal a quarter-final berth.

Dean Henderson is likely to start between the sticks having played the two previous rounds.

Diallo was the star of the show as United’s U23s came from behind to beat Blackburn in a 6-4 thriller on Friday night.

He gave fans an early glimpse of why the Red Devils splashed the cash to recruit him.

Diallo grabbed THREE assists to help his team recover from a 4-2 deficit and grab all three points in the PL2.

He then put some gloss on the win, bagging a well-taken effort himself with five minutes remaining for Neil Wood’s side.

And now he’s in line to break into the first team at just 18 years of age.
