Premier League wonderkids who could play on the final day, including Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham starlets

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he wants to give some academy stars, including Mason Greenwood, some game time before the end of the season.

It’s likely he’ll get some minutes against Cardiff City, while several other youngsters, like Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes, and James Garner could also feature.

When asked about giving possible outgoing stars like Ander Herrera a final game, Solskjaer said: “You never know in football, it might be your last game but it might be the start of some careers as well. We had some young players knocking on the door all season and we’ll start with one or two of the kids as well.

Solskjaer has also had several other starlets training with the first-team as he looks to give them a chance to prove themselves.

Often at the end of a Premier League season it’s normal to see wonderkids get their debuts or some 90-minute run outs as clubs have little to nothing left to play for.

This has changed a little over the years where finishing even just one place higher gives clubs an extra cash injection.

Some may still get given a shot to show what they can bring to the team, but which players should we be looking out for? Find out below.

Tahith Chong (Manchester United)

As well as Greenwood, we could well see Dutch starlet Chong in action.

He’s already featured three times this season, twice in the Premier League and once in the Champions League, but only for a couple of minutes in each.

The winger could get whole game against Cardiff City.

Oliver Skipp (Tottenham Hotspur)

With Spurs ravaged by injury this season, the 18-year-old has actually been a squad player for most of the season, starting in wins over Burnley and Leicester City, while appearing five times as a substitute and registering two assists in the FA Cup.

He could be called on again as they face Everton just days after what looked like a physically and emotionally exhausting Champions League semi-final win over Ajax.

The scuttling midfielder might prove a sensible addition of fresh legs.

Eddie Nketiah (Arsenal)

Similarly to Skipp, the Gunners striker has been on the fringes for most of the season and started two Europa League matches, while featuring for a combined 35 minutes off the bench in the Premier League.

Unai Emery’s men are in the Europa League final so could now turn to Nketiah to give Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette a rest against Burnley.

Joe Willock (Arsenal)

Another Gunners youngster hoping to make an appearance in the final match will be Willock.

The central midfielder, like Nketiah, has started two Europa League matches and will want to showcase his talents after a two-goal display against Blackpool in the FA Cup earlier this year.

Harvey Elliott (Fulham)

Still just 16, the midfielder has been in recent first-team squads as caretaker boss Scott Parker looks to get the best out of his relegated side.

Earlier this season he became the club’s youngest ever first-team player and the youngest to ever play in the League Cup when he came on for nine minutes against Millwall in September, still only 15.

He’s 16-years-old now and became the youngest ever Premier League player when he made a two-minute cameo against in the defeat to Wolves last weekend.

Morgan Gibbs-White (Wolves)

The 19-year-old is undoubtedly talented and has made 20 substitute appearances in the Premier League under Nuno Espirito Santo this season.

He has made five starts but will hope to add to them before the campaign ends.

A fine young playmaker, he should be pushing for regular starts next season and if he doesn’t get them he may need to make a decision on his future.

Sam Woods (Crystal Palace)

A lifelong Eagles fan, 20-year-old defender Woods appeared as a late substitute in their Carabao Cup defeat and was on the bench for their 1-0 win over Newcastle.

With the Eagles safe and not in with a chance of a seventh place finish, he might be granted an opportunity by manager Roy Hodgson against Bournemouth.

Sam Surridge (Bournemouth)

Having spent some of the season on loan at Oldham, Surridge could get a chance against Crystal Palace.

Since returning from the spell away from the Vitality where he netted eight goals and made three assists in League Two.

He has appeared on the bench for Eddie Howe’s Cherries in eight of their last 11 games and played 10 minutes against Arsenal in a 5-1 defeat.

Kayne Ramsay (Southampton)

The 18-year-old ex-Chelsea prodigy made his debut for the club in late December.

Ralph Hasenhuttl, bearing in mind the game was against Manchester City, threw him in at the deep end and he acquitted himself well.

Ramsay also featured in the FA Cup, playing at centre-back against Derby County but could play in his more familiar role at some point in the final game with Huddersfield.
