City u18s v Arsenal u18s Saturday 16 February 11am Platt Lane training ground
Adam Sadler’s men came unstuck against a talented Aston Villa side last Saturday, losing 5-2 despite a spirited second half comeback.
They face an Arsenal team that lost their last league game 2-0 at home to Blackburn Rovers.
It's likely to be an evenly matched encounter, thanks to the Gunners sharing a similar youth policy to City, offering opportunities for youngsters to play up an age-group or two.
They’re managed by Carl Laraman who will be taking charge of his second match after succeeding Steve Gattling who was promoted to the u21 set up.
