Manchester United’s youth squad faced against the youth squad of Middlesbrough over the weekend and it was the Premier League newcomers’ U-18 squad that opened the scoring as their star striker Mitchell Curry scored on the rebound after a good free-kick.

The sides went into the break with Middlesbrough leading United 1-0 but the Red Devils came back stronger when play resumed and started dominating the proceedings. DJ Buffonge took the ball on his feet and finished a superb solo effort to get Kieran McKenna’s side level.

Tahith Chong then produced a lovely individual display as he dribbled from near the half-way line into the box before crossing it for Diedrick-Roberts, who scored the winner on his first start for the youth squad as Manchester United completed a wonderful comeback.
