Who is Josh Harrop? Man United youngster scores on his debut at Old Trafford

21-year-old starlet scored United's first goal against Crystal Palace after a wonderful assist from Paul Pogba

Remember the name, Josh Harrop.

The 21-year-old starlet scored for Man United on his debut at Old Trafford against Crystal Palace as Jose Mourinho fielded a much-changed XI with the Europa League final in mind.

The dream moment came after just 15 minutes when Paul Pogba played a delightful outside-of-the-boot pass to Harrop before the talented youngster weaved past a defender in the box and made space for an emphatic finish.
