Angel Gomes became the first player born in 2000 to appear in a Premier League game when he became Manchester United’s youngest debutant in more than half a century against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Gomes replaced Wayne Rooney in the 88th minute of the 2-0 win at Old Trafford to make his first senior appearance at just 16 years and 263 days old.

He is the first 16-year-old to play for United since Norman Whiteside in 1982 and the club’s youngest debutant since David Gaskell in 1956 — 61 years ago. Duncan Edwards was 16 years and 185 days when he made his debut in 1953.

Angel Gomes is Manchester United's  first player born in 2000
Gomes, born on Aug. 31, 2000, is also the first United player in any competition to be born this millennium.

“Obviously, it’s a dream come true,” Gomes told MUTV. “I’ve been here since the age of six, working my way up and it’s what everyone dreams about. I just want to thank the manager for putting me on the bench and playing me today, and all the staff back at the club and everyone who has helped me. I’m from Manchester, Salford and it’s literally down the road. It’s just unbelievable.

“I saw Eric Bailly go down and we’d already made two subs. I didn’t know and Matty Willock was told to warm up so I was a bit curious. The boss told me to warm up and I was out there about 25 minutes with Daley Blind and then I heard my name.”

Gomes already received United’s youth team player of the year for this season.

“It happened so quickly really, from Thursday to Sunday, training on Friday and making an impression in Saturday’s training before being named on the bench today and coming on.

“It was a dream coming on and it’s happened so quickly. I don’t know what the future plans are for next season but I just want to continue playing, whether it’s in the Under-18s or Under-23s, I just want to stay with the good habits and carry on pushing really. Who knows, I’m not sure what the plans are for next season.”

Angel who has been suffering from reoccurring Hip injury visited the Synagogue Church of All Nations for healing April 23, 2017. He was prayed for by Prophet T B JOSHUA and has been well ever since.

Chelsea intensifies Andy Carroll Chase

Chelsea intensifies Andy Carroll Chase

Reports making the rounds today reveals that Chelsea are hugely interested in signing Andy Carroll from West Ham this month.

The Premier League champions has suffered a third successive goalless draw, for the first time in their history, against Leicester City on Saturday seems to have lost faith in Álvaro Morata.

The Spaniard has scored only twice in the top flight since mid-November and has gone five games without a goal.

Antonio Conte has now turned to Carroll for rescue as the Italian man continues to be reluctant to play Michy Batshuayi who will possibly be going on loan to Sevilla if a replacement can be secured.

Andy Carroll signed for West Ham from Liverpool in 2013 for £15m, and has seen his impact limited by injury in the years since.

Verge24 understands that the move for Chelsea signing Carroll may be a short-term solution before a summer recruitment drive, and West Ham would take some persuasion to part with Carroll on a six‑month loan deal.

David Moyes suggested last week that he would not want to see any of his forwards depart. Yet that may not dissuade Chelsea from exploring the option, reflecting the need to pep up the forward line amid a cluttered schedule.

Kelechi Iheanacho Going Nowhere – Claude Puel

Leicester City coach Claude Puel has dismissed speculation of his £25 million striker Kelechi Iheanacho leaving due to lack of playing time this January.

Puel refused to write off the former Manchester City forward, who has found the back of the net just once for the club this season.

Kelechi Iheanacho signed for Leicester in the summer from Manchester City but has made just two Premier League starts for the foxes.

The Nigerian Super Eagles attacking forward is expected to be on his way out of the club for a possible playing time in a quest to guarantee his place in the team to represent Nigeria in Russia later this year.

Last week, Nigeria national team handler Gernot Rohr said that he expects Iheanacho and his teammate Ahmed Musa to leave the King Power Stadium because of their lack of playing time, Puel has however dismissed any exit talk. According to him;

“We don’t know about what the national trainer said. We will see. We have discussions with different players. For example Iheanacho is a young player, arrived this season, and he will stay with us.

“I cannot talk about details about players. It is important to have a good balance in the team and have a good game time for the players.

“Iheanacho is a young player, he signed this season with us and we have to develop him. I hope he can have more game time in the second half of the season.”

He is a young player who arrives in a good team where there is competition and he needs to keep working and improve.”

Leicester will visit Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League with Jamie Vardy fit after a groin injury.
