Erik ten Hag has included a trio of Manchester United youngsters in first team training this week ahead of Sunday’s trip to Luton Town in the Premier League.

The Red Devils go to Kenilworth Road looking to make it five wins on the spin in all competitions and seven matches without defeat.

The mood is good in the Manchester United camp and Ten Hag has brought in 18-year-olds Ethan Williams and Louis Jackson and 20-year-old Toby Collyer to train with the senior squad.

Williams is a left-winger who started at Rochdale but moved to Manchester United in 2019, while Jackson is a centre-back capped for Scotland Under-19s.

Collyer came through the Brighton youth system before moving north to Manchester in 2022. The defensive midfielder has been capped for England up to Under-17 level.

The youngsters will be pleased to be involved in first team training, but they are unlikely to get a run out against Luton, with Manchester United’s injury problems easing thanks to returns for Casemiro, Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane.

However, there are problems at full-back, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrell Malacia out and Luke Shaw a doubt, while Mason Mount remains sidelined.

‘Yes, so he is doubtful for the weekend but we are positive he can make it,’ Ten Hag told reporters this week.

‘So, he fell out [of the Villa game], it was a precaution and I think it was the right decision, especially when you, afterwards, win the game.

‘But we are working to Sunday.

‘Wan-Bissaka will take some weeks because he picked up another injury in training last week. Mason [Mount] and Tyrell will take some more weeks.’
