Manchester United U18s Lose 11th Straight Game, Worst-Ever Run of Form

Manchester United are enduring a horrible shift away from tradition this season, with their stagnant Premier League performance seemingly replicated in their youth squads.

Paul McGuinness' U18 Red Devils lost 2-0 to Manchester City on Wednesday to register their 11th straight league loss, reports Joe Mewis of the Mirror.

Formed in 1932, the team has never been on a run this bad before, and they now sit bottom of the table without a league win since September. They were also dumped out of the FA Youth Cup a few weeks ago at the hands of Chelsea.

United have a rich history of nurturing young talent, with Sir Alex Ferguson's multiple title-winning teams revolving around the likes of David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville.

They've also gone 3,778 straight games with a youth player in the first team's matchday squad, a crazy run dating back to 1937.

It's fair to say the youngsters' current run of form will have alarm bells ringing at Old Trafford.
