Manchester United’s under-18s side won in style against Liverpool’s youngsters on Saturday afternoon by a mammoth 9-1 scoreline.

It was total domination from Adam Lawrence’s side, who moved 13 points clear at the top of the Under-18s Premier League North following Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat to Wolves.

Despite a close 4-3 victory last time out against Liverpool at Carrington, United’s U18s side swept them aside away from home this time around.

Quickfire goals from James Scanlon, Ethan Wheatley (x2) and Ethan Williams gave The Reds a comfortable 4-0 victory within 25 minutes.

Liverpool responded with a goal before half-time before a further five goals were scored by the visiting team in the second half.

Wheatley grabbed his hat-trick goal early in the second half before Scanlon, Gabriele Biancheri (x2) and Ashton Missin grabbed the last goals of the game.

It was a dominant performance from the league leaders, who have now scored 68 goals across 20 league games.

Jaydan Dejon Kamason sends clear message

Jaydan Dejon Kamason operated at right-back during the encounter and excelled in the game. The 17-year-old grabbed two assists to top off an impressive performance.

Kamason has now played 11 games in the league for the U18s this term and is quickly becoming an important player for Lawrence’s side.

Following the game, Kamason sent a message which encapsulates the spirit that should be at Old Trafford.

Messaged by academy-based outlet AcademyScoop about the game, Kamason said: “This is Man United bro… no mercy.”

First-team could learn from it

How many times this season have United been ahead and either not taken advantage or bottled the lead? Too many to count.

Despite the level, the U18s’ keeping the intensity and pressure against a solid Liverpool side was excellent to see and something that was needed more in the first-team squad.

The latest games against Chelsea and Brentford saw United drop points on occasions where the foot had been taken off of the gas. It has been a problem all season and perhaps Erik ten Hag’s squad could look at Lawrence’s team for inspiration.
