The Spanish midfielder started a consecutive game for City’s second string for the first time but was disappointed not to come away with a positive result.
“They pressed really well in the first half, they played really well so it was harder to play and play out” the 17-year-old said.
“In the second half they dropped off so we had more time on the ball and it was easier to play out.
“We played better and we could have won the game but we didn’t take our chances so we’re unlucky to lose today.”

“It’s a bit of a quicker pace and you have to get used to it.
“I want to keep playing as much as I can and keep improving.”
