United starlet drops huge hint to Fergie

Manchester United starlet Ravel Morrison gave a glimpse of his first team potential with the winner in a reserve team clash against Bolton.

The 18-year-old midfielder has been earning rave reviews at Old Trafford for some time now, helping the academy side to an FA Youth Cup title last term and making his senior debut in the League Cup.

On the fringes of the senior side, Morrison struck the only goal of the game in the 94th minute of a Senior Cup Group game last night, unleashing an unstoppable shot from range to win it 1-0 for Manchester United.

Coming off the bench on 69 minutes, Morrison needed just 25 minutes to show his attacking capabilities, and keep Manchester United top of the group in the competition with the game seemingly heading to penalties.

Paul Pogba was another to stand-out, with the French youth international also making his mark with the Red Devils first team in the League Cup.

Both have further stated their case to be involved with Sir Alex Ferguson's first team, and follow in the footsteps of stars like Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck in Lancashire.


Before they got their chance at Manchester United, both enjoyed successful loan spells away from the club, and it's a trend that Pogba and Morrison may have to follow before getting their chance.

The ambitious young pair will be eager to skip that step though, and Ferguson appears set to continue with the youngsters in the Cup as Manchester United continue to build for the future.
