Everton Under-23s went down to a 3-1 loss at new Premier League 2 leaders Manchester City.
The young Blues fell behind at the Academy Stadium on Friday night when Ben Knight finished with 18 minutes on the clock.
David Unsworth's side equalized 6 minutes after the break as Mackenzie Hunt swung in a corner and fellow substitute Tom Cannon planted a firm header into the net.
But the hosts restored their advantage just 5 minutes later before they took all the points with a third goal scored just past the hour mark.
Everton Under-23s remain 5th in Premier League 2
Everton: Hansen, Quirk (45'Hunt), John, Astley, Ouzounidis, Anderson [Y:48'], Iversen [Y:68'], Price (64' Welch), Broadhead [Y:34'], Onyango, Hughes (45' Cannon [Y:82']).
Subs not Used: Barrett, Butterfield.

He completely overran our Onyango, who seems to be our next potential lad with Small.
I really don't know what's going on with the academy, but the lads we are producing are devoid of any PL potential, coached poorly and set up even worse. We currently have Tom Davies as our sole player who came up through the academy, yet Utd finished the game against us on Saturday with 4 academy lads, Greenwod, Rashford, MacTominay and Tuanzebe.
Liverpool have 2-3 playing regularly, Arsenal have 3-5 playing regularly, there is something clearly wrong with whole of our Academy, U23 set up
- it's absolutely rubbish !

Ive heard good things about Price, and I hope he comes through, simply because he looked our best player with the ball, but maybe that isnt difficult, because to many Everton players looked like they didnt really want the ball.

At least now the team is looking younger and I applaud that but these young players need a coach who can teach them how to play with the ball..
