Barclays U18 Premier League: Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City All Win

Sinclair netted a brace to seal the Liverpool win.

Sinclair netted a brace to seal the Liverpool win.

Liverpool kicked off 2014 with a 3-0 win over Middlesbrough.

Jerome Sinclair grabbed a goal either side of half-time, which proved too much for ‘Boro, who also conceded from Daniel Cleary in the closing seconds of the match.

The win keeps the pressure up on Sunderland and Manchester United as Liverpool bid for a place in the top three.

They’ll have a lot of work to do if they are to catch Everton though, and even more so to catch Manchester City, who won 4-0 against Stoke City today.

Pablo Maffeo opened the scoring three minutes into the second half and Bersant Celina doubled the lead on 71 minutes.

Denzeil Boadu made it three for City when he netted after 79 minutes and Celina scored his second to conclude City’s tally with just one minute remaining.

With Aston Villa and West Ham United losing, and Tottenham Hotspur not playing, Chelsea moved up into second place in the southern division after a narrow win over Norwich City.

Dom Solanke scored his seventh and eighth goals in his last three games to secure all three points for the Blues.

Jamie Eaton-Collins scored an equaliser for the Canaries but Solanke’s terrific form of late proved too much as he extended his tally to 15 for the season in just 12 matches.

Full results:

Liverpool 3-0 Middlesbrough, Stoke 0-4 Man City, Sunderland 0-1 Newcastle, Wolves 1-2 Man Utd, Aston Villa 0-1 Leicester, Chelsea 2-1 Norwich, Southampton 2-1 West Ham, Blackburn 2-3 Bolton.
