Dominant United bow out of the FA Youth Cup

Liverpool’s hopes of clinging on to their slender lead received a major blow in the 68th minute, when defender Norris was red-carded after an overly strong challenge on substitute Marc Jurado.

United, who had been in charge of the proceedings if not the scoreline, looked to have been given an unlikely boost by that dismissal but no matter what the players attempted in the time that remained, the equaliser remained elusive.

United: Vitek; Hughes, Fish, Fernandez, Pye (Jurado 64) ; Sidersky, Savage (Hansen 71); Shoretire, McNeill (Emeran 80), Hannibal, Hugill.

Substitutes not used: Mee, Hoogewerf, Forson, Wellens.

Goal: Liverpool – Morton 17.

Sent off: Liverpool – Norris 68.
