Barclays U18 Premier League: Spurs Beat Arsenal In North London Derby

John Mc Miller Winks 730Spurs won this weekend’s North London derby against Arsenal to keep the pressure up on Fulham at the top of the Barclays U18 Premier League southern division.

Tottenham will be relieved to put an end to a four-match winless run, which was seemingly unheard of following a superb start to the season.

Will Miller grabbed a brace while an own goal and a Cameron Carter-Vickers effort saw them net four times on Saturday morning.

Jack Jebb managed to pull it back to 2-1 on 39 minutes but the game soon ran away from them, which meant Jamal Raage’s stoppage time strike was only a consolation.

Everton squandered the opportunity to go top of the north division after they lost at home to Newcastle.

Manchester United went down 1-0 away at Middlesbrough, which meant Everton would have the chance to take top spot from the Red Devils.

Macaulay Gillesphey and an own goal gave Newcastle the ammo to ensure that Dave Watson would triumph over his old side, of where Newcastle’s coach spent 15 years as a player.

“It is always nice coming back to Everton and get a result as well but it is more important for the lads to get the win than it is for me,” said Watson.

“It was a really good team performance from the kids, they played well and showed great work rate and we created plenty of chances and could have scored more.”

Full results:

Liverpool 2-0 Wolves, Blackburn Rovers 3-5 Man City, West Ham 3-1 Fulham, Bolton 0-0 Stoke, Middlesbrough 1-0 Man United, Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 Arsenal, West Brom 2-1 Leicester, Everton 0-2 Newcastle, Chelsea 1-1 Aston Villa, Southampton 3-2 Reading.
