Man Utd midfielder Angel Gomes expecting physical Rochdale test

Manchester United midfielder Angel Gomes is expecting a physical test against Carabao Cup opponents Rochdale.

The United youngster is set to be involved tonight.

He told MUTV, “They're a League One side, a tough team and physical but that's part of the game anyway. Every team we play against will be physical, that's a given, so I don't really take that into consideration.

"We'll try to play our football and attack as much possible, trying to show our strengths.

“They'll come out all guns blazing, I would imagine. It's a big game for them, they've not played against our club for a long time and they have an ex-United player in Oli Rathbone.

"I grew up watching him as he was two or three age-groups above me. I know him quite well so hopefully he'll play and I'll be able to play against him.“
