Watch the key moments as the young Reds travel to Brockhall to take on their Blackburn counterparts...

Adam Lawrence's side extended our 100 per cent record in the Under-18 Premier League last weekend, with a 3-0 victory away to Blackburn Rovers, as Victor Musa netted a hat-trick.

The youngsters have won eight from eight at league level and the club last lifted this trophy as recently as 2022, when a side containing the likes of Kobbie Mainoo, Dan Gore and Alejandro Garnacho defeated Nottingham Forest in the final at Old Trafford.

Our 11 victories in the competition is a record, with West Ham United the current holders, after beating Arsenal in last season's final.

More details on our third-round fixture will be published in due course.
