Ethan Williams scored one goal and set up another as Manchester United Under-18s were crowned U18 Premier League national champions with a 2-1 victory at Chelsea, securing a domestic Treble.

United, winners of the Premier League North title and the Premier League Cup, started brightly in Tuesday night's meeting between the North and South group champions at Stamford Bridge.

Williams set-up Ethan Wheatley to tuck home United's opening goal past Blues goalkeeper Max Merrick after 21 minutes.

Chelsea levelled on 47 minutes when Tyrique George picked out an unmarked Josh Acheampong at the back post, and his header trickled past goalkeeper Elyh Harrison.

Man Utd responded, and Williams smashed home the winner seven minutes later, following up after Jack Fletcher's initial shot had been blocked.
