City’s Elite Development Squad will look to go top of the Barclays Under-21 Premier League on Monday evening.
Patrick Vieira’s side trail Manchester United by two points, but will leapfrog our neighbours with a win at Leicester City, who currently prop up the rest of the division having lost four of their first five matches.
After failing to win a game in August, City EDS have hit a rich vein of form with seven wins on the bounce catapulting the young Blues into second in the table and to the brink of progressing to the knock-out stages of the Uefa Youth League – not to mention earning a place in the Manchester Senior Cup final.
Vieira will be particularly pleased at the way the goals are being spread throughout the team, with seven different names responsible for the last eight goals scored.
Keep updated on the progress of City EDS in our new #CityBlog tomorrow evening.
City v CSKA
The night will belong to us when City face CSKA Moscow on Wednesday 5 November in the UEFA Champions League.
CSKA Moscow fans are not permitted to attend this fixture so we will have the entire Etihad Stadium available for home supporters only.
To celebrate this rare opportunity to pack both ends of the stadium with home supporters, fans who buy one ticket will receive an additional ticket completely free. This offer applies to fans who have already bought tickets for this match, and those looking to buy a ticket now.
