U23 Premier League | Div 1 | Gameweek 3 | Man City and Liverpool play out stalemate

In Division One’s gameweek three of the U23 Premier League, Manchester City and Liverpool played out a stalemate in Friday’s meeting at the Etihad Stadium.

Liam Millar gave Liverpool the lead just before the hour mark, before the hosts equalised through Rabbi Matondo in the 77th minute.

Tottenham rescued a draw against Brighton. They fell behind at home before half-time due through Viktor Gyokeres but recovered well in the second-half thanks to Shayon Harrison.

Arsenal emerged victorious in a five-goal thriller away to West Ham United, having gone 2-0 up in the first-half through Eddie Nketiah and Julio Pleguezuelo.

Alexandre Silva pulled a goal back for the hosts after the break but Nketiah re-doubled Arsena’s advantage. Reece Oxford made it 3-2 on the hour mark, but his goal didn’t spark a comeback. Arsenal took all three points at the London Stadium.

Chelsea lost at home to Derby County, with Chris Martin grabbing the only goal of the game at Stamford Bridge, and Leicester City thrashed Blackburn Rovers 4-1.

Raul Uche gave City the lead, but his effort was cancelled out by Okera Simmonds after the break. The hosts responded through Bartosz Kapustka and a Layton Ndukwu brace to earn all three points at Holmes’ Park.

Elsewhere, Everton and Swansea City played out a goalless draw at Goodison Park.
