Manchester United were beaten by Manchester City in the Premier League U18 at the Academy Stadium in Manchester on Saturday afternoon. United played well at times, but it was City that did all the damage through Luke Bolton and Phil Foden. Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui, United’s goalkeeper did not have a great afternoon playing for his club, giving away an indirect free-kick after picking the ball up from a back pass, then seeing red after a challenge, then his reaction to the onslaught of City players calling for him to be sent off, which saw him sent back to the changing room early. Max Johnstone, the brother of Sam Johnstone came on for DJ Buffonge after the red, with United chasing the game at 1-0 down at the time. Johnstone conceded a quick goal which saw City double their lead and cruise to victory with United chasing the game and getting nothing from it. City seemed to get the better response from the referee after putting in many challenges, many against Tahith Chong and seldom getting pulled up for it. it was a poor game, based on the last three, but United will take something from the match which will be a lesson for each player on the pitch. City were not as clinical as they maybe should have been, but still took all three points, which they deserved. United face Stoke City at the AON Training Complex in a week’s time, with Kieran McKenna’s squad looking to get back to winning ways once again and get their season back on track after their third defeat in six matches.
