Wonder goal

The goal, from Demi Mitchell in the 87th minute against Leicester City u23's, saw the young striker lob the Foxes 'keeper from a full 25 yards out for what was a very special strike. Scroll down for video of the exceptional effort.

The game, the first of United's Premier League 2 campaign, was tied at 1-1 with just a few minutes remaining when Mitchell latched onto a long punt from Sam Johnstone in the Red Devils net.

From there, instinct took over as the youngster caught everyone off guard with a sublime lobbed finish from way out...

Showing great pace, vision and execution, Mitchell certainly caught the eye of those in attendance at the Leigh Sports Village venue.

With the goal now doing the round amongst United supporters, he has also made a name for himself within the club's fanbase...

This isn't the first time Mitchell has come up with the spectacular during his time at Old Trafford, however.

Back in 2011 during the Aegon Cup, the 19-year-old bagged a finish against Bayern Munich that went on to be considered for MUTV's Goal of the Month.

Fast forward to two minutes to see the strike.

Bright future

With Marcus Rashford having burst onto the United first team scene last season with some exciting displays, Red Devils fans will certainly be hoping that they have more future stars waiting on the production line.

Of course, Mitchell still has a long way to go before he can emulate his fellow Manchester-born teammate however.

While spectacular goals will no doubt get the attention of Jose Mourinho, there are a host of high-calibre players in the United first team right now that will mean Mitchell must bide his time in the reserves for the time being.

Nevertheless, with three points in the Premier League, strikes like his lob on Monday night will only increase the feel-good factor around the club right now.
