“We have seen some physicality and he [Facundo Pellistri] has some good movements and some good runs in behind,” said Erik ten Hag after Man United beat Nottingham Forest 3-0.
“He has speed so he has to bring that in our game. I think he is also a player who can play really good between the lines because he can be ball-secure. That he has to bring into our game.
“[He is] a little bit different, we have a left-footed right-winger in Antony, and Facundo is right-footed and I think a best chance was, well not our best chance, but a good chance he created, was his cross for Wout Weghorst.”

When asked if Pellistri could feature against Reading in the FA Cup, Ten Hag added: “After today, I have something in my head but I have to settle this game down and look into my plans and I have to look into Reading and then we have to make a good plan to beat Reading.”
Pellistri impressed fans with his 20-minute cameo, playing a key role in the build-up to our third goal.
Giving him a chance against Reading would certainly come as a boost to the youngster, who has hardly featured for the senior team since joining.
