Manchester United midfielder Kobbie Mainoo is set to start for England against Belgium at Wembley on Tuesday.

Mainoo, 18, made his debut from the bench against Brazil on Saturday.

England have limited options in the deeper midfield areas and manager Gareth Southgate has referenced that when speaking to the media this week.

Mainoo has made 23 appearances in his first full season for United, scoring two goals.
