    Salford City 0-6 Manchester United U21s: Visitors net six in EFL Trophy tie

    Manchester United U21s eased past Salford City in their EFL Trophy clash 1:19
    Manchester United greats Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs were in attendance as their former side's U21s thrashed the club they co-own 6-0 in the EFL Trophy.

    Manchester United's U21s demolished Salford City 6-0 in their EFL Trophy match-up on Wednesday evening.

    There was an interesting twist to the tie with Salford City part-owners - Gary Neville, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt - part of Manchester United's famed 'Class of '92'.

    And their former side began well at the Peninsula Stadium as United's youngsters went ahead inside eight minutes when Hannibal fired home.

    Salford attempted to pull a goal back before the break, but fell further behind just after the restart when Mark Helm bundled the ball home.

    The hosts then began to unravel as Manchester United netted three times in five minutes to give them an unassailable lead. Charlie McCann started the glut of goals in the 70th minute with a delightful drilled finish.
