Since establishing himself as an under-23s regular, the 19-year-old has racked up a hugely impressive 12 direct goal contributions in just 21 appearances.

Puigmal’s latest run of form has seen the youngster score five and assist another two in his last three Premier League 2 appearances.

Most notably, the Spanish teenager scored a stunning free-kick against the Gunners’ youth side during a match which saw him go on to bag a brace.

United’s under-23s current form with the help of Puigmal has seen them win three of their last three matches meaning they now sit fifth in the Premier League 2 table and have a game in hand.
