Like Hall, he made Potter’s squad for a Premier League match against Brighton but did not come off the bench after a heavy 4-1 defeat at the Amex Stadium.
With injuries to key players such as Reece James, N’Golo Kante and Wesley Fofana, Potter may have to use the talent at his disposal in the academy to hand his exhausted stars a rest after playing nine games in October alone.
And Potter confirmed the young pair would play some part in the clash at the Etihad, their penultimate match before the month-long World Cup break, after earning their place in the squad.
“He’s in the squad [Hutchinson], Lewis Hall’s in the squad, they’ve impressed,” Potter told a news conference on Tuesday. “They’ve been training with us for a while now and they’ve got some good qualities as young players that we just need to nurture and take the right steps with. But they’ll be in the squad and involved.”
