Manchester United took on Portsmouth in the FA Youth Cup earlier this week and after a tense ending, emerged victorious.

With appearances from both Keane brothers, van Velzen, Tunnicliffe, Cofie and Pogba this was a strong line up and it showed as United.

Portsmouth went into the game with a record of 1 win, 1 draw and 11 defeats and it looked like the night wouldn’t be any easier after Pogba scored an early wonder striker, their keeper made a huge gaff for the second and Will Keane appeared to wrap it up with a third but it wasn’t done and 2 late goals from Ryan Williams ensured a nervy ending.

Next up for United is West Ham on Wednesday the 19th at Upton Park. West Ham saw off Aldershot 5-0 in the last round so United will not be allowed any lapse late or otherwise!
