Manchester United U18s 2 - 0 Everton U18s

But the result was equally disappointing for Blues fans, with the youngsters losing 2-0 to a pair of goals in the second half.
Everton U18s: Leban, Kristensen (66' Warrington), Small, Welch, Campbell, Butterfield, Mills (45' Higgins), Price (66' Whitaker), Cannon, McAllister, Dobbin.

He was on his own upfront and struggled to get on the end of long balls from the back, as Calvert-Lewin does. A few times though he “nearly” got on the end of through balls on the ground. Better defenders afford him less space; equally, first-team players may just find him with better balls.
Hes progressing fine: 2 months of training with the first team, scoring with the U23s and hell be ready for a January loan. Take it from there. Though I would love to see him get Premier League minutes, just to give the coaches something else to work on with him afterwards.
Gordon was the one catching the eye today. I dont know whats going on with Carlo, hes certainly showing enough to be in the squad, even when Richarlison returns.

So he not only had the energy to get up there but timed his run into the box just right. And hes still doing the basics well, tackling, covering, simple passes.
Hes off with Dobbin to the England U18 squad this week; Ill try to keep an eye out for any reports.
