U18s: United 3 Tottenham 1

United's lead was doubled just three minutes later, with Love bombing forward and pulling the ball back for Wilson, whose clever turn and curling left-footed strike from the edge of the box gave Luke McGee no chance in the Spurs goal.

This second goal from Wilson essentially sealed the points for the Reds with a quarter of an hour to go, but it could have got even better for United after a magnificent solo effort from Barmby. The latter hit the side netting after creating an opening for himself with a wonderful pirouette between Dombaxe and Spurs substitute Roman Michael-Percil.

Spurs clipped United's crossbar with the last kick of the game as Dombaxe's free kick beat Gollini, but the Reds were still worthy victors and now table-toppers, two points clear of second-placed Southampton.

United: Gollini, Love, Rowley, Grimshaw, Dalley, Weir, Barmby, Daehli, Wilson, A. Pereira, Gorre. Subs not used: Wilkinson, J. Pereira, Harrop, McNair.
