Barclays U18 Premier League: Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United

Sinclair netted a brace to seal the Liverpool win.

Sinclair netted a brace to seal the Liverpool win.

Liverpool cruised to a 3-1 victory against Manchester United this morning at Kirkby Academy.

Ashley Fletcher gave United an early lead but a brace from Jerome Sinclair either side of an Alex O’Hanlon wonder strike gave Liverpool all three points.

Fletcher opened the scoring when he got on the end of a Jordan Thompson long ball then made a stunning individual run to take it past Daniel Cleary and tapped into the net.

Jerome Sinclair netted his equaliser after the half-time break from the penalty spot.

Alex O’Hanlon’s effort was sublime to give Liverpool the lead. He received the ball 30-yards out and produced some neat footwork to free up some space and fired home.

It wasn’t until injury time when Sinclair extended the lead and secured the win for Liverpool. His shot rifled low past Dean Henderson.
