Manchester City coach Attilio Lombardo was delighted with their FA Youth Cup win over Sunderland.

Goals from Sinan Bytyqi, Jose Angel Pozo and Marcos Lopes punctuated a sizzling performance from the Blues on a Baltic night at Edgeley Park.

"It was a good performance and a good result, I thought we worked very hard, we were comfortable all game and we deserved the result," Lombardo told City's website.

"We were playing against players the same age - in the league we've found it difficult to play against under 21 teams because we're a young team but it's important for their mentality to keep working hard at Carrington and to replicate what they do there on the pitch."
