Barclays U18 Premier League: Honours Even In Manchester Derby

Joshua Harrop netted the last minute penalty for Manchester United.

Joshua Harrop netted the last minute penalty for Manchester United.

This weekend saw the Manchester derby in  the Barclays U18 Premier League and it finished a goal apiece between City and United.

It was Joshua Harrop’s late penalty that saved a point for United as City went ahead in the first half through Daniel Lema.

Lema scored very early on when he netted from Kean Bryan’s cross into the bottom corner of the net.

Brandon Barker and Jorge Intima had efforts for City which came close in the first-half but neither were able to extend the Citizens’ lead.

Intima appeared to have won a penalty before half-time but the referee overruled the linesman’s decision.

Demetri Mitchell was fouled for the United penalty and Harrop calmly sent the goalkeeper the wrong way with just two minutes remaining to make sure his side stayed top of the north division table.

In the south division, Fulham remain on top following  a 1-0 away win at Leicester City.

Moussa Dembele scored his eleventh goal of the season to put Fulham a point clear at the top of the league, however Spurs sit behind them with a perfect record of seven wins out of seven.

Full results:

Blackburn 2-3 Everton, Bolton 0-5 M’Boro, Man City 1-1 Man Utd, Stoke 4-1 Newcastle, Sunderland 0-1 Wolves, Aston Villa 2-1 Arsenal, Chelsea 3-1 Southampton, Leicester 0-1 Fulham, Norwich 2-4 Spurs, West Brom 1-2 West Ham.
