Confirmed Starting XI: Gomes back, Baars, Levitt and Mellor also start; Chong on the bench


Manchester United U18’s face Blackburn Rovers at Brockhall Training Centre this morning in the U18 Premier League. Last time out United were beaten 1-0 by Stoke City in the U18 Premier League Cup. In the league, the last match was played at the end of October, United beat Sunderland 2-1 with Aidan Barlow and Mason Greenwood scoring the goals. The match before that was a 6-2 rout over Middlesbrough which saw Lee O’Connor and Nishan Burkart score a brace and Barlow and Dylan Levitt scoring the other matches. United are top of the league but have played two matches more than second-places Manchester City.

Manchester United:


Tanner, Barrett, O’Connor, Laird;

Levitt, Garner, Galbraith;

Baars, Mellor, Gomes


Bernard, Carney, Puigmal, Chong, Ramazani

Angel Gomes is back in the squad after his FIFA U17 World Cup adventure which saw England lift the cup. Tahith Chong is on the bench following his recovery from injury with United seeking another victory, which will see them keep their challenge up with City, who will need to win their games in hand in order to topple United. Kieran McKenna will be confident of the quality within his side for this match, which should see them prevail and take all three points back to Manchester.
