Steven Gerrard’s U19 side will take on none other than Manchester United in the UEFA Youth League Last 16!
We romped through the Group Stages as winners and will now take on our greatest rivals in a one off game on either February 20th or 21st.
Thankfully, we’re at home for the clash.

Gerrard’s been calling Ben Woodburn down from the U23s for the competition, but he won’t be able to do the same with Rhian Brewster, sadly.
The English forward is injured and out until the end of the season, but talisman Curtis Jones should lead the boys out.
What a test for the youngsters! The atmosphere will be tremendous and everything will be at stake. We’re going to head down and watch! Come join.
