CONFIRMED: Liverpool under-18s and Manchester United under-18s line-ups

Here is how the under-18 teams for Liverpool and Manchester United will line up for this morning’s match:

Liverpool under-18s starting line-up: Fulton, Whelan, Hart, Brewitt, Roberts, Phillips. Wilson, Marsh, Sinclair, Kent, Canos

Subs: Polgar, Firth, Maxwell, Nicholas, Travis

Manchester United under-18s starting line-up: Henderson, Riley, Tuanzebe, Williams, Warren, Redmond, Borthwick-Jackson, Rathbone, McTominay, Dearnley, Mitchell

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.
