Twenty-year-old Manchester United midfielder Matthew Willock has a very slight figure, but he displayed surprising strength to score the opener in Friday night’s 1-1 draw at Manchester City.
Willock fired United ahead in the U23 Manchester derby, before Brahim Diaz levelled in the second half.

Willock held off challenges from two City defenders before firing a low left-foot shot into the net from just inside the penalty area.
City had a good chance to win the match at Etihad Stadium late on, but Diaz was denied a second goal by an impressive Kieran O’Hara save.
Focus now turn to the main event, as City visit Old Trafford in the Premier League tomorrow.
