Charlie McNeill continues hot streak despite U23s defeat

Manchester United wonderkid Charlie McNeill has how scored in four consecutive games.

McNeill stepped up from Under-18 football to the Under-23s this season and is now finding his feet.

Neil Wood’s side went down 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace but it was McNeill who made it 1-1 on 14 minutes.

After the game, he took to Instagram to celebrate scoring once again, although he also bemoaned the defeat.

McNeill scored against bitter rivals Leeds earlier in the month after a great assist by Amad.

He followed that up with a goal in the under-23 draw with Derby at the having been played in by Hannibal.

On Tuesday, he got the equaliser in Manchester United’s under-19s 2-1 victory over Villarreal in the UEFA Youth League.

And today’s goal kept the impressive hot streak going.

The youngster recently was involved in first team training, getting the chance to work alongside Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

On the subject of the first team, the aforementioned Amad was not in United’s squad for this game.

That raises the prospect he could be involved in the senior side’s clash with Chelsea tomorrow.

For young players, it is all about making those jumps up and McNeill has now found his feet at this level.
