Former New York Red Bulls Academy player Matt Olosunde did not make his Manchester United debut last week, but he was training with the first team again this week - raising the hope that he might get another chance at his first competitive minutes in England's Premier League when his club takes on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, May 14.

Of course, there is quite a jump from being at Man United's training ground and being in the team on match day - otherwise we'd be expecting to see world champion boxer Anthony Joshua in Jose Mourinho's 18 at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Per the Manchester Evening News, however, Olosunde is in the squad traveling to Tottenham. As was the case last week, when Man United played Arsenal in London, Mourinho is expected to give several young players an opportunity as he seeks to manage a crowded schedule and rest those he hopes to see participate in the Europa League final on May 24.
