Manchester United’s U18s play Man City this afternoon in their new academy stadium at what is a horrible time for the team.
With ten consecutive league losses heading into the City game, the U18s are currently in disarray and a big derby match will only crank up the pressure.

Angel Gomes, 15, is on the bench as his great progression through the ranks continues but with United in such a bad run of form, there’s going to be a lot of pressure on all the youngsters to turn it around and get back to winning ways.
The game isn’t live on MUTV but there will be highlights tonight at 9pm.
