Mersey fixture changes for Under-18s

Meanwhile, the home clash with Liverpool at the Aon Training Complex has been switched from 5 January 2019 to 9 February (11:00 GMT kick-off), meaning that will be a big week next year for the youngsters.

United safely qualified as group winners for the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League with the 6-2 thumping of Young Boys on Tuesday and the competition for places at the younger levels will keep giving Ryan a selection headache.

'It does make it very hard,' he said. 'What we're trying to create is that environment where everyone is pushing each other in training - mentally, physically, tactically and so on. With everything we do with them, we want that feeling of unity and a squad where everyone is working for a common purpose and so on. We're going to need the squad to help us through the upcoming games.'
