UNDER-18S: UNITED 6 WOLVES 1

Under-18 Premier League | Aon Training Complex | Scorers: Levitt 8, Burkart 29, Barlow 37 (pen), Greenwood 16,40,64 | Samuels 90

Manchester United's Under-18s blazed to our best win of the season so far with a terrific performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Aon Training Complex on Saturday.

Five goals to the good at the break, the Reds took our foot off the gas slightly in the second half but were still fabulous value for their win following an overall excellent performance. Playing on the newly renovated and renewed pitch for the first time, United wasted no time in taking the game to the visitors. Just 10 minutes had elapsed when Dylan Levitt grabbed the opening goal with a thunderous drive from the edge of the penalty area.

Five minutes later, Wolves could have been level when Austin Samuels raced through, looking all set to score until United’s keeper Alex Fojticek pulled off a brilliant diving save. The Reds responded instantly when Millen Baars crossed from the right for Mason Greenwood to head home.

The Reds looked capable of scoring every time we attacked and, in the 29th minute, Burkart squeezed home the third goal. There were 15 minutes remaining to the half-time whistle, but United were far from finished where scoring goals were concerned. Wolves goalkeeper Rory Brown was beaten twice more as the clock ticked towards the break with Aidan Barlow netting from the penalty spot, after Burkart had been fouled, and, in the 40th minute, Greenwood headed the fifth goal from Baars' pinpoint centre.

Despite the game being a virtual lost cause, the visitors improved markedly after the break and restricted United to just one more goal, Greenwood completing his hat-trick from Barlow’s pass in the 64th minute, and keeper Brown deserves a special mention as, without his heroics throughout the match, United could have finished with double figures.

And it was Wolves who had the last word, in the final minute, when Samuels broke free to hit home a consolation goal for the lads from the West Midlands.

United: Fojticek; Tanner, Dunne, Barrett, B.Williams; Levitt, Garner (Ramazani 72), Baars; Burkart (Galbraith 72), Greenwood, Barlow (Puigmal 65). Subs not used: Thompson, O’Connor.

U18S: UNITED 6 MIDDLESBROUGH 2

Under-18 Premier League | Aon Training Complex | Scorers: O’Connor 16, 90, Burkart 31, 35, Barlow 73, Levitt 82 | Wearne 13, Walker 34

The recent run of impressive form Manchester Under-18s have been enjoying was maintained in style as we overcame a strong Middlesbrough side to stretch the unbeaten run to six games.

And, at the same time, the Reds rattled home six goals for the second successive week to give the goals for column a very healthy appearance.

This meeting had all the makings of an intriguing contest with our youngsters holding fourth spot in table, just one point and one place above Middlesbrough who had completed one game more.

United, of course, were going into the game on the back of that scintillating 6-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Boro were boosted by a 3-2 success over North-East rivals Newcastle United last weekend.

Weather-wise it was what can only be described as changeable as kick-off time drew near with brief showers and very fresh winds – courtesy perhaps of the incoming ‘Storm Brian’ – sharing the scene with occasional outbreaks of beaming sunshine.

Mason Greenwood and Boro’s Connor Malley both fired in shots in the opening minutes as the game got off to bright start. Both sides looked lively and keen to take the contest to their opponents and, in the 13th minute, the visitors made the breakthrough with a goal from Stephen Wearne.

Kieran McKenna's men, however, were quick to reply and, barely three minutes later, were on terms when Nishan Burkart crossed from the left for Lee O’Connor to score at the far post.

Millen Baars was unlucky not to find the net on two occasions with shots that brought excellent saves from Boro keeper Zach Hemming. Then came a spell of three goals in four minutes with Burkart scoring twice for United either side of Stephen Walker’s goal for the Teesside club.

‘Storm Brian’ was, by this time, making its presence felt as the gusts became stronger, but both team coped well and to some degree used the wind to their benefit.

If the first half was a finely balanced contest, the second half certainly saw United take the laurels after finding the net a further three times. Aidan Barlow made it 4-2, in the 73rd minute, with a curling shot that skimmed over Greenwood’s head on its route past Hemming.

Substitute Largie Ramazani was then involved in the game’s final two goals with neat passes to set up Dylan Levitt, eight minutes from time, and O’Connor just before the final whistle.

United: Fojticek; O’Connor, Dunne, Barrett, B. Williams; Baars (McGhee 68), Garner, Levitt, Barlow (Mellor 77); Greenwood (Ramazani 74); Burkart. Subs not used: Thompson, Galbraith.

UNDER-18S: MANCHESTER UNITED 2 SUNDERLAND 1

Under-18 Premier League | Aon Training Complex | Scorers: Barlow 64, Greenwood; Kimpioka 24


Manchester United's Under-18s had to dig in for victory on Saturday, eventually claiming all three points thanks to second-half strikes from Aidan Barlow and Mason Greenwood.

The visitors from Sunderland took a surprise 1-0 lead into the break after netting midway through the first period. However, Kieran McKenna's side recovered after the interval to secure a third successive triumph on the back of the recent 6-1 and 6-2 drubbings at home to Wolves and then Middlesbrough respectively.

Benjamin Kimpioka opened the scoring for the Black Cats in the 25th minute after a string of passes carried the possession to his feet just inside the United area. The striker then dissected Reds defenders Max Dunne and Jake Barrett with a neat ball of his own to Bali Mumba, before profiting from the one-two to slot home past Alex Fojticek.

Mounting pressure from the Reds after the interval eventually paid dividends with an equaliser in the 64th minute. United substitute James Garner showed great tenacity to win the ball back for his side in open play following a corner and when Nishan Burkart's low cross took a deflection, the prolific Barlow showed quick reactions to level the score at 1-1 by nodding in at the far post.

Greenwood later popped up with the winner to ensure United achieved simultaneous Saturday wins - the Academy side were playing at the same time as the first team were beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at Old Trafford.

United: Fojticek; Laird (Mengi), Dunne, Barrett, B. Williams; O'Connor (Garner), McGhee (Mellor 46), Levitt, Barlow; Greenwood; Burkart. Substitutes: Thompson, Baars.

UNDER-19S : UNITED 1 BENFICA 1

Manchester United and Benfica battled out a 1-1 draw at Leigh Sports Village in the UEFA Youth League to leave the Reds on top of Group A.

Following a tetchy 2-2 draw between the clubs in Portugal last time out, this was another combative encounter with a clash of styles which was fascinating to witness.

Ethan Hamilton fired United ahead after only three minutes, reward for pressing from the front by Nicky Butt's side. The Scottish midfielder aggressively robbed Gedson Fernandes and kept his composure to stroke past an exposed Daniel Azevedo with his left foot.

The Reds have made a habit of getting off to great starts in the competition but were pegged back 10 minutes later. Medina Etienne escaped down the right flank and crossed to the far post, where Joao Felix pounced ahead of George Tanner to nudge in the equaliser.

With coach Butt forced to watch from the stands after his dismissal in Lisbon, things were fractious at times again in a competitive contest played in a real European manner. Joao Felix had a deflected shot pushed away by Alex Fojticek, with the keeper also worked from the corner and aided by Tanner as the ball was scrambled away from the line.

Florentina did force the ball into the net but was well offside, while Ethan Laird shepherded the ball the right side of the far post from a United perspective after Tyrell Warren sliced a centre by Gedson Fernandes. Aidan Barlow's free-kick was blocked by the wall as the first half drew to a close.

Angel Gomes, fresh from winning the Under-17 World Cup with England, made an instant impression as a substitute by setting up Nishan Burkart for a shot over the bar as the 742 fans at Leigh Sports Village enjoyed a game that could have gone either way.

Hamilton was in with a great chance of a second goal, from Joshua Bohui's intelligent lay-off, but his finish lacked power on this occasion and Azevedo saved comfortably. Back came Benfica, with Joao Filipe clean through after tricking Ro-Shaun Williams, only to roll his shot under Fojticek but against a post. Warren cleared the danger after avoiding any mishaps as the ball trickled towards the unguarded net.

Gomes' long-ranger was easily held by Azevedo, while Laird had to be cool at the other end to clear from inside his own six-yard box after Joao Felipe did superbly to beat Tanner. Basel defeated CSKA Moscow 4-2 in the other game in the group, moving the Swiss side to within a point of Butt's men, but this was a fair result on the day.

United: Fojticek; Tanner, Warren, R. Williams, Laird; Sang (Gomes 55), Hamilton (B. Williams 83), Garner; Barlow, Bohui, Burkart (Baars 83). Subs not used: Thompson, Dunne, Ercolani, Kenyon.

UNDER-18S : MANCHESTER CITY 4 UNITED 1



Under-18 Premier League | Manchester City Academy | Scorers: Simmonds 7,40 Rosler 28, Garcia 73 | Chong 5

Manchester United’s youngsters slipped to a first league defeat since the opening day of the season in the Mini-Derby at City’s Etihad Campus on Saturday.

The reverse also meant that Manchester City leapfrogged over Kieran McKenna’s lads to capture top spot in the table.

There were brief falls of snow in east Manchester early morning but, by the time the teams took the field blue skies were sharing the heavens with fluffy white clouds. Manchester has always been famous for its weather and it certainly appears on some days to have a climate all of its own.

And bright sunshine was illuminating the scene when United strode into the lead in the fifth minute. Nishan Burkart was responsible for the assist with a brave run which saw him burst into the City penalty area before crossing for Tahith Chong to blast the ball high into the Blues’ net in his first start since suffering a knee injury last season.

It was great start for the Reds but, sadly, our lead was too short-lived for, within two minutes, City had levelled the scores through Keke Simmonds. It was certainly a lively opening and a typical derby match feel with both sides going full throttle from the off.

United then had two good opportunities to regain the lead but Burkart was halted just as he was about to shoot and Lee O’Connor headed narrowly wide of the post. Instead, City moved into the lead in the 38th minute with a goal from Colin Rosler, son of former City striker Uwe, from Tommy Doyle's cross.

In the very next minute, United were presented with the chance to draw level when Chong was felled in the area, but Angel Gomes blazed his spot-kick over the goal guarded by his fellow Under-17 World Cup winner Curtis Anderson.

It proved a turning point as, moments later, United slipped further behind when winger Simmonds grabbed his second goal of the game with a shot that deflected in off Jake Barrett.

United had given themselves a mountain to climb and our plight became worse in the 73rd minute when City skipper Eric Garcia headed his side’s fourth goal, against the run of play after a spell of pressing by the visitors.

George Tanner and Gomes had promising shot saved by keeper Anderson and, ultimately, the Reds had to accept that it just wasn’t going to be our day with the team reduced to nine men at one point while a couple of players received treatment off the pitch.

United: Fojticek; Laird, O’Connor, Barrett (Tanner 46), B. Williams; Puigmal (Baars 65), Garner, Barlow, Chong (Levitt 65); Gomes; Burkart. Subs not used: Carney, Mellor.

UNDER-18S : WOLVES 3 MANCHESTER UNITED 2

Under-18 Premier League Cup Group F | Sir Jack Hayward Training Centre | Scorers: Samuels 24, 28, Whittingham 47; Mellor 72, Greenwood 88

Manchester United's Under-18s bowed out of the Premier League Cup on Saturday afternoon as Wolverhampton Wanderers inflicted a 3-2 defeat that defied the form book and the balance of play.

Kieran McKenna's side dominated possession throughout the game, including the period in which Austin Samuels rocked the young Reds back on their heels with a four-minute double. His pair of sucker punches came midway through the first half, and Joel Whittingham headed in a third goal for the hosts just after the break.

United fought back and reduced the arrears with goals from substitute D'Mani Mellor and Mason Greenwood but ultimately fell short of progressing from Group F.

The day began with all four teams in the group on three points apiece after two games played. But after table-topping Arsenal won 4-2 away at third-placed Stoke City in the earlier kick-off, it left the Reds needing to beat the bottom side Wolves by three clear goals.

There was early encouragement for that mission when United's lone striker Nishan Burkart rounded Wolves goalkeeper Jackson Smith but his composed attempt came back off the base of the left-hand post. However, the deadlock was eventually broken in the 24th minute, against the run of play, when Greenwood was dispossessed on the halfway line and Samuels tapped in from Brad Carr's crafty cutback.

Samuels's second goal, in the 28th minute, was more of a solo production as he charged into the left-hand channel, left one United centre-back Teden Mengi trailing and weaved inside the other, Di'Shon Bernard, to finish inside the near post with Reds goalkeeper Theo Richardson getting a hand to the ball but not with enough contact to stop it crossing the line.

Although Richardson conceded twice in the first half-hour, his opposite number Smith was much busier at the other end, having to edge away a low shot across his goal by Dylan Levitt and show a clean pair of hands to catch Brandon Williams's header when the left-back met Largie Ramazani's cross to the far post. New boy Aliou Traore tried his luck from distance on a couple of occasions as he looked to make his mark on his debut.

Hopes of a second-half recovery by United were dealt a huge blow immediately after the restart when Wolves used a short corner on the left to feed Taylor Perry. From his cross, the hosts' left-back Joel Whittingham, still up from the set-piece, leaped higher than his marker Traore and beat Richardson with a thumping header that went in off the underside of the crossbar.

McKenna made an attacking double substitution to send Mellor and Millen Baars into the fray, and later brought on Arnau Puigmal, and it was just after the latter's introduction when United pulled the first goal back. Mellor broke into the box from the right-hand side and drove in a fierce shot that packed too much power for Smith, making the score 3-1 in the 72nd minute.

Moments later, Greenwood threatened from the same area of the field but his low effort went marginally wide with the Wolves keeper scrambling across his goalmouth to make sure. In yet another attack instigated on the right, Baars looked up and played a dangerous ball into the six-yard box, only for a Wolves defender and two onrushing United players to end up in the net and the hosts cleared.

At the other end, Richardson had to move quickly across goal and use his fingertips to turn a shot by Wolves substitute Owen Otasowie onto the post. Some positive play on the flanks brought United a second goal in the 88th minute - Greenwood meeting a cross from Williams and beating Smith with a downward header that went in off the post - and there was almost a third when another header, by Puigmal from Levitt's centre, drifted just wide in injury time.

The Reds' rally had been impressive but ultimately wasn't enough to secure progress into the next round. Instead, McKenna's side finished third behind Wolves and Group F winners Arsenal.

United: Richardson; Tanner, Mengi, Bernard, Williams; Garner, Traore (Mellor 53); Ramazani (Baars 53), Greenwood, Levitt; Burkart (Puigmal 70). Substitutes not used: Carney, Galbraith.

UNDER-18S: MANCHESTER UNITED 2 LIVERPOOL 2

Under-18 Premier League | The Cliff Training Ground | Scorers: Mellor 11, Puigmal 90+4; Millar 51, McAuley 60

Manchester United and Liverpool’s youngsters fought out a thoroughly entertaining 2-2 draw at The Cliff on Saturday, despite the Under-18 Premier League contest taking place in testing wintry conditions.

Half-time was reached with Kieran McKenna's United team ahead at 1-0 and the visitors reduced to ten men, but in a terrific fightback after the break, the Merseysiders clawed their way into the lead and held it until the hosts snatched a last-gasp leveller in the fourth minute of added time.

The game was given the green light following a pitch inspection by the match officials at 9.30am despite The Cliff’s legendary carpet being covered in a swathe of snow. The referee, Michael Crusham, and his assistants, decided that underneath the white stuff there was a perfectly playable surface, so the teams immediately began to ready themselves for the latest academy level clash between two of this country’s greatest clubs.

In the meantime, the lines on the pitch had to be cleared of snow and United's physio Russ Hayes contributed greatly to that process, to such a degree that he could claim to be the club's best sweeper!

Although the surface still looked anything but conducive to good football, both sides made a lively start and there were very few slips and problems with grip underfoot as the game unfolded in front of the hardy souls gathered on the river side of United's famous old training ground.

The hosts were having the lion’s share of the attacking in the opening phase and deservedly took the lead in the 12th minute when D’Mani Mellor latched on to an Aidan Barlow pass and beat Liverpool goalkeeper Vitos Vitelslav with a low shot. The young men in red shirts very nearly added a second goal in the very next minute when George Tanner went close with a header from Barlow’s cross.

It was a positive start from McKenna’s lads and the cause was given another boost in the 27th minute when Liverpool defender Adam Lewis was shown a red card by referee Crusham following a challenge on Tahith Chong.

The pitch was turning increasingly green as the game progressed towards half-time and it was certainly a clear vindication of the referee’s decision to allow the meeting to go ahead. Having said that, the half-time break brought another heavy fall of snow and as the second period commenced, the pitch was returning to its earlier unfamiliar colour.

Six minutes into the second spell, the visitors found a way through the United defence for Liam Millar to claim the equaliser. Worse was to follow nine minutes later when, with the game now taking place under The Cliff’s floodlights, the hosts' backline was breached again by substitute Glen McAuley.

McKenna sent on Millen Baars in the 68th minute and the United sub soon tested his luck with a long shot that just failed to find a way past Vitelslav.

The hosts picked up the tempo in the latter stages in search of a second goal, but Liverpool’s ten men were battling hard to retain their hard-fought lead.

Both Baars and Chong went close as the clock ticked ever faster towards the end, but it appeared that the best chances of the closing stages were going to fall to Liverpool’s Curtis Jones, who fired over from a great position, and Yasser Larouci, who looked certain to score before also failing to do so.

United were staring at defeat as Liverpool coach Steven Gerrard urged his charges to preserve their lead, but as the fourth minute of added time was reached, Mason Greenwood struck a curling low shot that seemed destined to creep inside the far post until Vitelslav got a glove to it. Unfortunately for the visitors' goalkeeper, he only parried to the waiting Spanish youngster Arnau Puigmal, who gleefully guided the ball into the net.

Talk about Christmas coming early, this game had all the trimmings – a wintry scene, excitement and a fair share of thrills for the fans watching at The Cliff and live on MUTV.

United: Fojticek; Tanner, Ercolani (Levitt 81), O’Connor, Laird; Chong, Traore (Baars 68), Garner, Barlow (Puigmal 87); Greenwood; Mellor. Substitutes not used: Williams B., Carney.

UNITED EXIT YOUTH CUP ON PENALTIES



FA Youth Cup third round | Pride Park | Scorers: Dixon 3, Bogle 24 | Chong 13, Barlow 57 | Derby win 3-1 on pens

Manchester United were beaten in the FA Youth Cup third round at Derby County, with the Rams winning a penalty shoot-out 3-1, following a 2-2 draw.

The Rams got off to the perfect start in front of the Pride Park fans with a fortunate early opener. The ball was cleared to Connor Dixon, who unleashed a hopeful volley that took a double deflection before finding its way past Alex Fojticek.

United's response to the setback was a positive one as Mason Greenwood, in for the injured Angel Gomes, did well on the right to set up Aidan Barlow for a clipped effort that struck the bar. Undeterred, Tahith Chong collected a stray pass in the Derby half, embarked on a purposeful run and finished clinically with his left foot.

Greenwood flashed a free-kick wide as Kieran McKenna's side looked in control, only for George Tanner to concede a set-piece that led to the Rams' second goal. Jayden Bogle whipped it in towards the near post and it evaded Tanner's lunge and deceived Fojticek to provide a real blow.

Fojticek saved from Jason Knight and Barlow sent an attempt over the bar as the Reds went in a goal behind at the break. As snow started to fall, conditions became more and more difficult but Barlow levelled matters after a brilliant move. The England Under-17 international was heavily involved in the build-up and arrived on cue to net with a stooping header, when substitute Millen Baars's cross flicked off a defender's head.

Lee Buchanan hit the bar for the Rams as both sides created chances with the hosts pressing but risking being caught by United's fluid football on the break. Extra-time was required to separate the two sides, who dealt with the wintry weather admirably, but the additional period turned into a real challenge for United.

Substitute Aliou Traore was shown a straight red card and, with Dylan Levitt already struggling to make any contribution due to an injury, Chong was taken off after lengthy treatment towards the end. Effectively with eight fit men, the Reds managed to gamely hold out but the shoot-out went all the way of the hosts.

Fojticek did save the first Derby attempt but skipper Lee O'Connor had already missed, and only the impressive Jimmy Garner managed to find the net as United exited the competition on a freezing evening in the East Midlands.

United: Fojticek; Tanner, Ercolani, O’Connor, Laird; Levitt, Garner; Chong, Greenwood (Baars 46), Barlow (Traore 62); Burkart (Mellor 70). Subs not used: Carney, B. Williams.

Default Re: Man United U-18 Matches 2017/18

UNDER-18S: SUNDERLAND 1 UNITED 2

Under-18 Premier League | Academy of Light | Scorers: Chong 32 pen, 79; Dunne 39


Manchester United’s Under-18s emerged from the winter break to register a confident and impressive victory over Sunderland on Wearside.

Tahith Chong was United’s hero with two goals, one in each half, as Kieran McKenna’s side dominated the match in overcast and blustery conditions to keep our title hopes well and truly alive.

Both sides made something of a tentative start to the game with United, kitted out in black shirts and white shorts to avoid a clash with Sunderland’s normal red and white stripes, perhaps enjoying a little more of the early possession.

Genuine openings were rare during the opening exchanges, but nevertheless both sides looked lively and refreshed following the festive break.

Sunderland’s Anthony Patterson was called into action more than United‘s Alex Fojticek, but there was nothing very testing to worry him until the 32nd minute, when he was challenged to try and prevent Chong’s penalty from finding the net.

Ethan Laird had been felled after bursting into the Black Cats’ penalty area and Chong made no mistake with a perfectly struck spot-kick past Patterson.

United were had certainly captured the initiative and were looking good to increase the lead before the break but, completely against the run of play, as so often happens, Sunderland grabbed an equaliser.

It arrived six minutes before the break when a rare lapse in United’s defence allowed Sunderland skipper Jordan Hickey to go clear and unselfishly he picked out striker Robbie Dunne, who gleefully hit the ball into the net.

United should have gone in at half-time holding the lead, but it is safe to say they would have been more than content with their overall performance in the opening 45 minutes.

The second half took on much the same pattern as the first had concluded in, with the visitors continuing to display more of an attacking appetite.

Laird, the Reds’ right-back, continued his excellent overlapping form from the first half and on one occasion his side-footed shot almost found the target.

There was a flashpoint in the 72nd minute, when substitute Largie Ramazani was tripped by Sunderland’s Tom Scothern. The referee awarded the free-kick to United but, in the heated skirmish that followed, the home team was reduced to 10 men when Tom Howard was red-carded. United’s Ramazani also picked up a booking for his involvement in the unsavoury incident.

This unexpected development would surely act in United’s favour during the time that remained, and so it proved with 11 minutes left on the clock.

And it was Ramazani, who had obviously put to the back of his mind the earlier caution, who opened up the Sunderland defence with brilliant threaded ball to Chong.

The Reds’ goalscoring hero on the day took the pass in his stride before rounding Patterson and tapping the ball into the unguarded net.

It was proving to be a really enjoyable day for United’s Chong, but a less than happy one for Patterson, who overall had contributed hugely to Sunderland’s cause.

There was another bad-tempered interlude involving several players from either side, in time added on, but on this occasion it passed without the match official taking any action.

It was deserved win for United and they did particularly well in the closing stages to take maximum benefit of the imbalance in personnel.

United: Fojticek; Laird, Dunne, O’Connor, Tanner; Galbraith (Greenwood 60), Puigmal, Levitt, Chong, Mellor (McGhee 83), Baars (Ramazani 60). Substitutes not used: Bernard, Thompson.
