United's Under-18s cruised to an impressive 4-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers at Carrington on Saturday.
The win stretches Paul McGuinness' side's unbeaten run to five games as the third-placed Reds keep the pressure up on second-placed Liverpool in the Premier Academy League.
Federico Macheda continued his fine goalscoring form at youth level this season by getting United off the mark on eight minutes.
Under-18s skipper Matty James, who himself has chipped in with a number of important goals this term, doubled the lead just after the half hour mark.
Bolton then scored twice in two minutes shortly after the break, but unfortunately for them the first was an own goal.
Fifteen minutes from time England schoolboy international Ravel Morrison, on as a 69th minute replacement for Cameron Stewart, completed the scoring and wrapped up the three points United richly deserved.
United: Devlin; Brown (Tunnicliffe 21), Strickland, Gill, Dudgeon; Stewart (Morrison 69), James, Norwood, Brady (Ajose); Petrucci, Macheda.
Subs not used: Wootton, Brandao.
