Academy Round-Up: Wolves Fail To Keep Pressure on Leaders

Wolves Academy Squad

Manchester City have gone three points clear at the top of the FA Premier Academy League Group C after Wolverhampton Wanderers lost 3-0 to West Bromwich Albion.

City started the day top of the league only by goal difference and were thrilled to hear of Wolves loss in the midland derby.

At the start of December, Wolves were heading the league but have since had a number of slip-ups which have cost them their top spot. And with Manchester City’s involvement in the NextGen Series now over, the club can put all concentration into their league performances. This will make for an exciting second-half of the season in Group C.

Manchester City beat Blackburn Rovers by a single goal and a large slice of luck as Rovers netted into their own goal after a period of high pressure.

Elsewhere across the country, Arsenal maintained their lead in Group A while second-placed Crystal Palace failed to beat Southampton in a thrilling 5-0 encounter.

Coventry City extended their lead in Group B as they beat Bristol City 1-0.

And Newcastle United are now four points clear with a game in hand at the top of Group D after they beat Huddersfield, 4-2.
