City's Under 18s beat Everton 2-1 at Platt Lane thanks to first-half goals from Jordi Hiwula and George King.

Hiwula put City 1-0 up with a neat finish following a header from Adam Drury, but Everton equalised before King restored the hosts' lead before the break after great work from Emyr Huws.

In the second-half, the Blues bossed most of the game, retaining possession and gave a controlled, professional display, but though City were the better side, Everton refused to lie down and only a terrific save from Ian Lawlor on full-time prevented the visitors leaving with a point.

As a result, the young Blues maintain their three-point lead over Liverpool at the top of the Barclays Group C table as a result.

Team: Lawlor, Kennedy (Facey), Plummer, Meppen-Walter, Leigh, Evans (Glendon), Drury (El-Fitouri), Huws, Hiwula, Rusnak, King

Att: 157

Man-of-the-match: Huws
