Highlights: Elanga amongst the goals as Man United U23s thump Liverpool


Footage of Manchester United’s Academy outfit putting their Liverpool equivalents to the sword over the weekend has come to the fore on Monday.

United cruise

Neil Wood’s men were back in action on Saturday evening.

On the back of an altogether hit and miss opening to the campaign – which had seen them collect just 8 points from six Premier League 2 outings – the Red Devils welcomed Liverpool to Leigh Sports Village, eyeing a 3rd-straight victory.

And, when all was said and done in Manchester, make it nine points from nine over the course of the last fortnight is precisely what United managed.

A dominant display ultimately culminated in a 3-0 victory, owing to goals from Bjorn Hardley, and a pair of youngsters with ample experience of life with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s senior squad.

Hardley was first on target, nodding home at the back post with with 20 minutes gone.

Next up was Anthony Elanga, who of course opened his Premier League account across a pair of appearances late last season.

Shortly after striking the post with a rasping effort, Swedish attacker Elanga’s free-kick across the face of goal evaded everyone, to make its way in at the back post.

And the day’s scoring was rounded out just beyond the hour mark, when Shola Shoretire, too boasting a handful of first-team appearances, latched on to Charlie Wellens’ defence-splitting pass to lash home a right-footed strike.

Highlights: Manchester United 3-0 Liverpool

With the club’s senior stars having of course departed for international duty across the globe, the United faithful will no doubt be keen to catch up on the latest efforts of their side’s academy talent.
