Reds Await U18s

Fulham’s Under-18s head to Liverpool on Saturday (11am), looking for a third successive win.

Comprehensive victories over Manchester City and Middlesbrough leave the Whites sitting in second place in the table on 19 points – seven behind runaway leaders Chelsea.

Saturday’s opponents, Liverpool, are in fourth spot and defeated Fulham 3-1 at Motspur Park in September.

Emerson Hyndman put the Whites in front, but second-half goals from Jerome Sinclair, Kristoffer Peterson and Yalany Baio saw the Reds depart with the points.

Last weekend, Steve Wigley’s side thrashed Boro 6-0 thanks to a Muamer Tankovic hat-trick, Pat Roberts’ brace and Lyle Della Verde’s effort.

Academy Director Huw Jennings said: “It was very, very comfortable for us. Once we got the advantage there was really only one team in it. That was our first clean sheet of the season so that, as much as anything, is particularly important.”
