The kid brother of Sunderland defender Wes Brown is in line for a Manchester United debut tonight.

Reece Brown is in the United squad for tonight's Carling Cup tie at Leeds United.

Brown, a defender like Wes, can also play in midfield and tweeted yesterday he was in the squad for tonight's tie.

Meanwhile, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has played down comparisons between Paul Pogba and Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira.

"Well, he's the same height! Vieira was a great player and the boy's only 18. What was Patrick like at 18? Playing centre-half at Cannes wasn't he?

"Then he emerged as a midfield player at Milan. Pogba does have great physique, is athletic, has good control and he could be a surprise for us."
