Manchester City U18 Extend Record Not Invincible

Tweet Football - Manchester City U18 Successfully Conquering Sunderland and extend its unbeaten run

Premier League - Jason Wilcox's side show they possess steel as well as skill to recover from a 2-0 deficit and turn the tables on their opponents to run out 4-2 winners, and thereby extend their unbeaten run to five games. 

With nine wins from the season's opening 14 games, City lie in second in the table staying in close touch with leaders Everton. 

The boss made a total of four changes from the side that drew 2-2 with Wolves last weekend. Daniel Grimshaw returned between the sticks, Marcus Wood was handed the captain's armband at the base of midfield while Lukas Nmecha and Will Patching, who have both been in flying form this term, earned another start apiece. 

Brahim Diaz and Isaac Buckley were given the task of supporting striker Nmecha from the wings. 

It was a strong side with a number of the starters already seeing action for the u19s and EDS this season, but the young Blues found themselves two goals down midway through the first half as the home side flew out of the blocks. 

However, City refused to let their heads drop and centre-back Charlie Oliver halved the deficit shortly before the break. 

The second half belonged to City and it was nothing less than the boys in blue deserved when Demeaco Duhaney popped up with the equaliser. 

Further goals from Lukas Nmecha and substitute Paolo Fernandes within just minutes of each other effectively ended the game as a contest and ensured City would be taking all three points back with them down the M1. 

Wilcox's young charges will be looking to build on their momentum when they host Blackburn Rovers at the CFA next Saturday.
