Revealed: 81% of Man United fans want Axel Tuanzebe to start vs Burton

Manchester United’s Carabao Cup clash with Burton Albion this evening gives Jose Mourinho the chance to rest key players who’ve already delivered in abundance this season, pushing the Red Devils to joint-top of the Premier League table with 13 points from five games.

The Old Trafford gaffer does have plenty of experienced players to choose from – it’s rather incredible the likes of Chris Smalling and Ander Herrera have been forced to settle for bit-part roles this season – but the League Cup is usually seen as an opportunity for young players to receive some exposure to first-team football.

With that in mind, we asked United supporters earlier today whether 6 foot 1 defender Axel Tuanzebe should start against the Championship outfit this evening and according to our poll, a whopping 81% think he should.

The teenager has already made five first-team appearances for the Red Devils but would surely relish the chance to impress his manager at Old Trafford against Burton.
