Barclays U18 Premier League: United and City Battling It Out At Top Of Table

After a hiccup in their first game, Manchester United are on their way back to good form by thumping Wolves earlier today.

They beat the Midlands side 6-1 thanks to a brace from Ashley Fletcher and single efforts from James Wilson, Callum Evans, Josh Harrop and Ruairi Croskery.

Denzeil Boadu is one of City's main striking prodigies.

Top of their northern group however is Manchester City, who beat Stoke 2-1 earlier today. England youth striker Denziel Boadu maintained his strong start to the season with City’s second in that encounter.

Moussa Dembele grabbed a hat-trick as reigning champions Fulham made it three wins out of three against Reading to stay top of the southern section.

It was a little closer than their other encounters this time though as Reading hit three against the Cottagers.

Newcastle won the Tyne-wear derby against Sunderland by a convincing margin thanks to goals from Liam Smith, Jon Quinn and Alex Gilliead.

Sunderland U18 coach Ged McNamee wasn’t happy with the result but identified the little positives: “The better team won and we were totally outplayed.

“The only pluses came from the under-16 players who took part – Daniel Pybus, Daniel Wright and Josh Robson.”
