CONFIRMED: Gomes, Gribbin and Chong start against City

Manchester United face Manchester City in the Premier League U18 at the AON Training Complex on Saturday morning, a battle for the bragging rights in Manchester. Earlier in the season, United were defeated 2-0 by City at their Academy Stadium, a match which saw goalkeeper Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui sent off for a challenge inside the box. The match was a fiery encounter, much like what this one is expected to be. Manchester City currently tops the Premier League U18, a point ahead of United, who are in second place. City will still have two games in hand over United after this match, so it will be important to take all three points, ensuring that United finish the season strongly, waiting for City to slip up, which will be expected at some point. Here are the starting XI and list of substitutes for both teams this morning. It should be an interesting match. Kieran McKenna has brought RoShaun Williams back from the U23’s, who don’t play for nearly a week, and Callum Gribbin, who played for the U23’s against Reading starts again today. Come on UNITED!

Manchester United:


Tanner, Warren, Williams, O’Connor;

Buffonge, Whelan;

Gribbin, Gomes, Chong;



Hamilton, Fojticek, Barlow, Burkart, Dunne

Manchester City:


Smith, Latibeaudiere, Francis, Duhaney;


Dele-Bashiru, Diaz;

Foden, Nmecha, Bolton


Hardy, Scott, Rosler, Sancho, Poveda
