Confirmed Manchester United under-18s line-up v City: Dutch summer signing starts

Old Trafford 3

Here is how Manchester United’s under-18s will line up against their Manchester City counterparts this weekend.

Manchester United under-18s starting XI: Henderson, Reid, Tuanzebe, Williams, Borthwick-Jackson, Riley, Fosu-Mensah, Scott, Redmond, Hamilton, Rashford

Manchester United under-18s subs: Byrne, Rathbone, Gribbin, Dearnley, Croskery

Manchester United’s under-18 side take on Manchester City on Saturday in what has been dubbed “the mini derby” by the club’s official Twitter account.

The two sides have a fierce rivalry that spans more than just first-team encounters and it will be interesting to see what happens when the two sides go head-to-head this weekend.

Both sides have a number of promising young players at their disposal and they will know this is a great chance to get noticed by Louis van Gaal and Manuel Pellegrini respectively.

Among those starting for United is Joe Riley, who was crowned Player of the Tournament when his side triumphed in the Mercedes Benz Junior Cup earlier this month.

United’s summer signing from Ajax, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, also starts against City, and the centre-back-cum-defensive-midfielder will be looking to build on some fine recent performances.
