A date has been set for Manchester City U18s FA Youth Cup clash with Swansea City.

Gareth Taylor’s youngsters will welcome the Swans to the Academy Stadium on Thursday 19 December, when we enter the competition at the third-round stage.

Kick-off is at 5pm and ticket information will be released in due course.

City will be aiming to go one better in the Youth Cup this year, having suffered an agonising penalty shoot-out defeat to Liverpool in the 2018/19 instalment and will hope to start with a repeat of the performance that saw us beat Swansea 5-0 in the U18 Premier League Cup last month.
