Tom Huddlestone rolled back the years with a brilliant assist for Manchester United under-21's winner against Barrow in the EFL trophy last night.
  • Huddlestone assisted winner in stoppage time
  • Came on as a substitute for Man Utd under-21s
  • Operates in a player/coach role

WHAT HAPPENED? Manchester United Under-21s faced Barrow in the EFL trophy and were level heading into added time. 35-year-old Huddlestone picked up the ball following a challenge in his own half, before spraying it excellently to Alejandro Garnacho, who then ran through to slot the ball home and win United the game.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Huddlestone is a part of Manchester United's under-21 coaching staff and operates in a player/coach role. Under new rules, under-21 teams can field five over-aged players and one in goal, meaning Huddlestone is free to pitch in on occasion.
