After the sensational comeback away at Chelsea last week, United’s U18s made it two wins from two in the Premier Academy League with an altogether more straightforward thrashing of Cardiff City at Carrington.

First half goals from defensive duo Sean McGinty and Michele Fornasier put the Reds into a commanding early lead and an outclassed Bluebirds side conceded three more after the interval, penalties from Tom Lawrence and Jack Barmby sandwiching a John Cofie strike as Paul McGuinness’ team continued their promising start to the new campaign.

    any idea when van Velzen will start being involved in matches and I noticed McGuinness only named 15 players in his squad for the match. Any particular reason for that?
