Charlie McNeill Man Utd U18 matchwinner at Liverpool

Charlie McNeill was Manchester United's matchwinner as the U18s defeated Liverpool 1-0 on Saturday.

The decisive moment came in the 35th minute when a cross from Charlie Savage led to McNeill pouncing on a loose ball and executing a typical predatory finish.

His tally for the season now stands at 14, following the current run of six in his last three appearances.

Liverpool created several decent attempts to draw level but United's Czech shot-stopper Radek Vitek was equal to all of them, denying Polish midfielder Mateusz Musialowski on at least a couple of occasions.

The result on Merseyside means United have now completed a home-and-away double over Liverpool at this level in 2020/21 - Neil Ryan's team also triumphed in a thrilling home meeting in early December, winning 4-3 at the Aon Training Complex.
