United's Under-18s warm up before the Liverpool game.

Under-18s' semi-final is a local affair

Manchester United's Under-18s have a local derby to look forward to on Saturday in the Premier League Cup.

Neil Ryan's boys came from 2-0 down to beat Liverpool 3-2 in the last eight to set up another cracking tie against the Blues, with the match being held at the Etihad Campus.

The 11:00 GMT kick-off must be decided on the day, with extra-time and penalties if required. Middlesbrough and Derby County will compete in the other semi-final.

Manchester City have now advised that, for security reasons, spectators will now be limited to player families for the game, so season ticket cards will not be accepted.

MUTV are screening the tie live and will be on air from 10:45 GMT.

United drew 1-1 against Liverpool in our last league fixture as it remains extremely tight at the top of the northern table.

Everton lead the way with 31 points from 14 games, the same as Liverpool who have a match in hand, with the Reds a further point back in third, having played 14 times. Derby are in fourth, on 29 points, after 13 fixtures.
