A third similarly added: “What a pass by youngster Tom Huddlestone who set up Garnacho.”
Another added: “Tom Huddlestone might be better than Donny…”
United fans also gushed over the value of having the former England international working with their youngsters, with one writing: “If you don’t understand the purpose of Tom Huddlestone then you don’t understand youth development imo! Gold dust for those youngsters!”
A second added: “I’m still not ready to believe Tom Huddlestone spends his days just casually pinging passes for United’s youth team”
While a third joked: “Tom Huddlestone in these clips looks like when the teacher joins in during school training games.”
Huddlestone joined United having played for Hull last season.
He has only made three appearances for the Red Devils’ under-21s, instead usually leaving it to the youngsters.
The classy technician has come off the bench in both EFL Trophy games, against Carlisle and Barrow respectively.
While he also made an 18 minute cameo in the PL2 against Fulham, laying on an assist for Omari Forson in a 2-2 draw.
