Manchester United named a youth team graduate in the matchday squad for the 4,000th consecutive time as they drew 1-1 with Everton at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay, Andreas Pereira, Mason Greenwood, Axel Tuanzebe and Brandon Williams have been included in the squad to face Everton in the Premier League at Old Trafford.

It's a run that stretches back more 80 years to Oct. 30, 1937, when Tom Manley and Jackie Wassall played in a 1-0 defeat to Fulham.

To put the statistic into context, Everton have the next best record in the top flight with a run of more than 1,000 games over 20 years which ended in August.

"Giving young players a chance is a tradition that we are very proud of; it's part of our DNA and you learn that very quickly when you join the club," United boss OIe Gunnar Solskjaer told the club's website.

"Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing a player that has come through our academy thriving on the football pitch.

"Young players can only surprise you and impress you when you give them a chance to show their talent. It's a milestone that we are proud of and long may it continue!"
