Man City 1-0 Everton
Everton Under-18s have suffered their second defeat of the season after losing 1-0 to Manchester City.
A win would have put the young Blues two points ahead of their north-west rivals, but it wasn't to be, in a tightly contested match.
The game could have gone either way in the first twenty minutes with both sides battling hard to gain an advantage.
Unfortunately for Neil Dewsnip's side, it was Man City who struck first - scoring what was to be the only goal of the game in the 35th minute.
It could have been so different with the in-form Georg Krenn almost scoring a sublime half-volley, only to see his shot go over the bar.
City came out the better side in the second half and didn't allow the Toffees to maintain any decent spells of possession and saw out the victory without too much difficulty.
Dewsnip wasn't too down-hearted despite the defeat, and explained that he has a number of things he wants to work on in time for next week's clash with Blackburn.
The Academy coach said: "We managed to bounce back from our defeat with Arsenal in style scoring ten goals in two games, so I'm looking for a similar reaction this time round."
