Manchester United teen Ravel Morrison could start in tonight's Carling Cup tie with Crystal Palace.

The 18-year-old from Wythenshawe in Manchester has hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons this year, reports The Sun.

In January he pleaded guilty to witness intimidation and was given a 12- month referral order.

Four months later he was fined after admitting criminal damage following a row with his girlfriend.

And on Twitter he complained about being left on the bench in a reserve game against Everton. He tweeted 'p***take' and added: 'I can not wait till the end of the season'.

Wayne Rooney immediately knocked him down, tweeting back: 'might come sooner than you think!!!!'
