Arsenal u18s v City: Match preview



City u18s travel to Arsenal’s Colney training base, looking to do the double over the Gunners in Phase 2 of the National Premier League.

Adam Sadler’s men recorded a 4-1 win over Arsenal last time the teams met back in February, with Joe Nuttall grabbing a hat-trick and City will be aiming to break a run of three consecutive draws when they travel to London for the return fixture.

It’s been a long time since the under-18s were in competitive action, although they have been out to Italy to contest a small friendly tournament since the 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough on 23 March.

They also kept their eye in with a friendly against a Stockport County XI this week and could consider themselves unfortunate to go down 1-0 at Edgeley Park.

City currently lie in fifth place out of seven in National Group 2, but with just four points separating top of the league Aston Villa with sixth place Arsenal, a place in the finals of the Barclays u18 Premier League is still to play for.

We’ll bring you a match report from this 1pm kick-off at Colney on mcfc.co.uk on Saturday afternoon.
