Manchester City beat Chelsea 3-2 to win FA Youth Cup

Manchester City won the FA Youth Cup for the first time in 12 years after a thrilling 3-2 victory over Chelsea at St George’s Park on Monday.

City reached the final four times in the previous five years but had lost on each occasion, including a hat-trick of defeats to Chelsea.

But they finally went one better to lift the trophy for a third time following triumphs in 1986 and 2008.

Chelsea took the lead through Marcel Lewis in the 28th minute when he beat the offside trip, but James McAtee equalised with a low finish for City to ensure the sides headed into the break on level terms.

City applied the pressure early in the second half and took a deserved lead when Morgan Rogers tapped in from close range, before Lewis equalised for Chelsea with his second goal via a deflection.

Cole Palmer won it for City in the 84th minute after good work by Liam Delap and he celebrated by paying tribute to former team-mate Jeremy Wisten, who died last week.
