Liverpool’s under-18s take on their Manchester United counterparts on Saturday morning in what is sure to be a full-blooded affair.
Liverpool started their new campaign in disappointing fashion, losing 7-1 to Stoke City before drawing 2-2 with Derby Country last weekend.
In contrast, United drew 0-0 with Bolton Wanderers before a Demetri Mitchell hat-trick guided them to a 3-2 victory over Newcastle United last time out.
Matches between these two sides are always fiercely contested no matter what age-group is involved; and both sides will be desperate to secure both the win and the bragging rights to set the tone for the rest of the season.
