Manchester City’s under-18s side annihilated their Leeds United counterparts with a 8-3 win on Saturday afternoon.The Blues, who lead the u18 Premier League North by six points, took to Thorp Arch Grange in Leeds to deliver a harsh lesson to their Yorkshire opponents.After a busy first-half which ended 3-2 to the away side, City turned on the style by scoring a sensational five goals in the remaining 45 minutes.And their dominance was to such an extent that even the official Man City academy account lost track of the actual score, incorrectly tweeting that the match had finished 7-3.The error was duly picked up on by confused fans, before the admin eventually realised their mistake.After deleting the original tweet, they posted: “FULL TIME Leeds United u18s 3-8 Manchester City u18s. A big win for Ben Wilkinson’s side! GET IN.”But the mistake had already been spotted, prompting a fan to joke: “How many full-times you gonna tweet.”City’s dominant performance came courtesy of William Dickson, Josh Adam and Jadel Katongo to put the Blues 3-2 in front.Do you think Manchester City have the best youth academy in England?
