Watch the highlights from Manchester City Under-18s’ 3-1 defeat to Sunderland at the City Football Academy.

Ben Wilkinson’s side entered the fixture looking to apply pressure on league leaders Manchester United and second-placed Liverpool with three points.

However, a clinical Black Cats side collected the spoils in wintery conditions thanks to goals from Benjamin Creamer, Chris Rigg and Trey Ogunsuyi.


As a result, Farid Alfa-Ruprecht’s equaliser was rendered as a consolation as the reigning national champions tasted only our second league defeat of the campaign so far.
