Manchester United’s under-18s won 2-0 against Wolves at Carrington on Saturday afternoon to continue their perfect run to the league season.

The Reds have won all nine of their opening games in the Under-18s Premier League North. However, this one might’ve been the toughest one of them all.

Despite an early opener from Gabriele Biancheri, United were up against a resolute Wolves side and did not find their second goal until seconds before the full-time whistle.

There were a host of impressive performances across the game, with three standout players detailed below.

Ruben Curley

Ruben Curley scored the second goal in the closing stages of the game to secure victory for United with a smooth finish after cutting inside on his favoured left foot.

The midfielder had an impressive game, as he helped both offensively and defensively. He was making smart decisions in possession for the most part.

Gabriele Biancheri

Gabriele Biancheri worked hard in difficult circumstances as the centre-forward. He won the penalty in the early stages with a smart run in behind and then dispatched the spot kick excellently.

Whilst his hold-up play was somewhat inconsistent at times across the 90 minutes, as would be expected, Biancheri helped his team up the pitch throughout, particularly towards the end of the game when the visitors were pushing.

Then he had the composure to slide in the pass to Curley for the second goal, earning an assist to go alongside his goal.

Finley McAllister

Finley McAllister produced an impressive performance as captain. He was helping United build from the base of midfield and never panicked when pressed in his own third.

Defensively he was solid, and he helped move the ball through the thirds with some tidy passing and runs.
