Watch City v Blackburn Rovers live on CITY+

Watch City’s table-topping Under-18s Premier League clash against Blackburn Rovers live on CITY+.

It’s first vs. second at the City Football Academy on Tuesday 1 February, with kick-off scheduled for 12:00 (UK) and the live broadcast getting under way at 11:50.

Victory for Ben Wilkinson’s youngsters would see us leapfrog Blackburn at the top of the U18 Premier League table as we continue our defence of the national crown.

Both sides are neck and neck at the summit, five points clear of third-placed Liverpool, but Rovers’ superior goal difference currently has them in the driver’s seat.


City have won four of our last five U18 Premier League matches and put five past Stoke City in our most recent outing, with all the goals coming in a blistering first half performance.

However, we’ll need to be at our best once again to come away with three points against the visitors, who have lost just once all season and have also played one less match than Wilkinson’s side.

With the U18 Premier League’s pace setters going toe to toe, everything points towards a thrilling clash, which CITY+ subscribers can enjoy in its entirety.
