United produce five-star display against City

The home side had only lost twice this term until Dave Watson's side arrived at the City Football Academy. 

United shaded the opening 40 minutes before taking the lead from the penalty spot when Thomas Allan was fouled and Matthew Longstaff converted. 

It was a short-lived advantage, though, as Ian Carlo Poveda was brought down and Keyendrah Simmonds scored from the resulting penalty to make it 1-1 before half-time. 

But within four minutes of the second half getting underway, Newcastle were ahead once more as Elias Sorensen curled home with a 20-yard free-kick.

Dan Langley made a good save from Simmonds before, just after the hour mark, substitute Kelland Watts made it 3-1 with a great individual effort.

Henri Ogunby pulled one back for the home side in the 67th minute but Alpha Diounkou was shown a second yellow card with ten minutes left and United made their extra man count.

Seconds later, Lewis Cass stole in to make it 4-2 from a corner then, in the 85th minute, Sorensen was impeded in the box by goalkeeper Pawel Sokol and picked himself up to get the fifth from the spot. 

Newcastle's next game is away to Crystal Palace in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup on Friday.

Newcastle United Under-18s: Dan Langley, Jack Young, Oliver Walters (Kieren Aplin 69), Matthew Longstaff, Lewis Cass, Isaac Gamblin, Deece Kasinga (Jack Robson 83), Mace Goodridge, Thomas Allan (Kelland Watts 46), Elias Sorensen, Adam Wilson

Subs not used: Will Brown, Kurtis Russell
