The U18s face West Brom for the second time in five days after beating them 3-2 in the PL Cup on Tuesday.

Live on MUTV 11:15 GMT, kickoff 11:30.

Hopefully it’s time for Noam Emeran’s debut, team news should come out in half an hour or so.

Brilliant strike from Helm outside the box, good save from the keeper over the bar.

Mejbri tripped on the edge of the penalty area, no whistle as Shoretire gets the ball but just curls it wide of the far post.

Good run into the box by Wellens but the hard shot straight at the keeper. A minute later Sotona goes past the defender on the right and tries to finish from a tight angle, just wide. A bright start from United.

West Brom take the lead after 19 minutes. Against the run of play but it’s a beautiful finish from Richards.

Mejbri has been by far the best player on the pitch. His close control and vision for pass when running with the ball is really good.

McCann with his 3rd goal from the spot against West Brom this week. An important goal just before the break.

Iestyn Hughes replaces the injured Neville seconds before the half-time whistle. 2-1 at the break.

Don't think we deserved to be trailing, hit the post and bar and then conceded against run of play.

At least still in the game with 2-1.

Not deserved for sure, but then again we look to concede every time we get tested defensively. Not just today.

Yeah, read that before that U18s are bit weak defensively.

54’ Helm with the equaliser. A good run into the box and a nice finish into the far corner.

It must be awful being an attacking player on our U18 side - knowing you need to score 3-4 goals to win a game. We are so awful defensively :)

The pace of Sotona is causing West Brom some problems today. Just the finish from a tight angle was missing there.

Pressure in the box of the home team and Helm gets his second of the day after a couple of dummies, 3-3.

Hoogewerf replaces Mejbri after 66 minutes.

FFS. Penalty for West Brom after Fish dives into the feet of a WBA player. 4-3.

Welcome to U18 footie:lol:

Helm close to getting his hat trick with a good low shot outside of the box. McCann with another one seconds later.

We have no idea how to defend, it’s a shame really cause the attack and midfield are both quite good.

Embarrassing, no Manchester United side should ever get beat 5-3 by West Bromwich Albion at any level.

At this level it’s forgivable so hold on to your ire.

It’s a learning curve and they will have to learn. Save the anger for the 1st team
