Tuanzebe hoping for more Man Utd action

Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe is hoping for more action after featuring in the FA Cup defeat of Watford.

Tuanzebe played the full match against the Hornets and wants more.

“I would obviously love to get more minutes, so I can constantly keep my performances up," he told the club's website. “Obviously the team are doing well so the only way in is really to force myself in with the chances that I do get.

“Sometimes it [the opportunity] can just come out of the blue. But the main thing is that we kept a clean sheet and we won the game.

“Respect to Watford. We said it before the game: they're a very tough-spirited side. Even though they made changes to the team, we know their ethos, their culture. So we knew that we had to perform to get the victory."

With such a congested fixture programme opportunities for all squad members are set to be on offer,.

“For one it prevents injuries, it gives everyone opportunities to perform, spots [become] open, nobody can be lacking and it keeps competition high. So that's the positive thing about it," added Tuanzebe.
