Manchester City U18s v Everton U18s
Everton's Under-18s suffered a 4-1 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday.
The young Blues were brought down to earth after a comprehensive Mersey derby win in midweek.
City took the lead after 17 minutes when Ashley Smith-Brown fired home a loose ball.
The lead was double just two minutes later when Thierry Ambrose converted at the near post.
The scoreline probably flattered City at that stage with neither side creating many chances.
The Blues did pull a goal back after the half hour to make it 2-1 and that was the way it stayed until the break.
But just after the second half started, Ambrose struck again to extend the home side's lead.
Everton rallied at that point and applied pressure to the City goal, going close on a number of occasions.
But instead of finding a way back into the game, the Toffees found themselves 4-1 down when Denzeil Boadu struck with just eight minutes left.
