Manchester United have recalled Wales midfielder Dylan Levitt from his loan spell at Charlton Athletic.

Levitt, who has five Wales caps, joined Charlton on a season-long loan in September 2020 but returns to Old Trafford having made only five appearances for the League One club.

Levitt has played once for United, in the Europa League last season.

“Dylan is a professional lad and a very talented footballer,” manager Lee Bowyer told the Charlton website.

“I’d like to thank Nicky Butt and Manchester United for allowing us to bring in Dylan on loan. He worked hard during his time here and we wish him the best for the future.”

It could be that United send Levitt out on loan for the second half of the season.

That would be welcome news from Wales’ perspective as they build towards this summer’s European Championship.

He has gone with two holding midfielders in other big games this season – the stalemate the last time they came to Old Trafford, in December, for example.

This time Fernandinho was on his own, but the other three midfielders were always tracking back to help him and all of them covered plenty of ground. There were times when De Bruyne was collecting the ball off his defenders, but he was also storming down the right-hand side.

It felt like the Belgian was everywhere, but he was in the number 10 position for what was his best moment – when he showed amazing technique to dig the ball out from under him and smash his shot against the post in the first half.

But, for all City’s possession and the way they were moving United around before the break, they were not testing Dean Henderson enough – which was why Guardiola was looking so frustrated.

That changed in the second half, and it was great to see Stones break the deadlock. His revival shows how dramatically footballing fortunes can change, and he is brimming with confidence at the moment.

Once City got the lead, Mahrez took up that central attacking role and Foden and Sterling dropped in to make it five in midfield and try to give City a block right across the pitch. It worked.
