Manchester City clinched the 2024 FA Youth Cup with an enphatic 4-0 victory over Leeds United in Friday's final held at the Etihad Stadium.

City gained control towards the end of a goalless first half, breaking the deadlock just two minutes into the second half when Justin Oboavwodou capitaliwed on a fortunate rebound following his initial shot being saved.

Twelve minutes later, Jayden Heskey tapped in the second goal after a superb low cross from Germany youth international Farid Alfa-Ruprecht.

Defender Stephen Mfuni extended City's lead with a header from a free-kick. Substitute Matty Warhurst sealed the victory with a solo effort, racing 40 yards before slotting the ball into the bottom corner eight minutes from time.

Leeds, despite their spirited performance throughout the tournament, including impressive wins over three Premier League teams en route to the final, couldn't match City's dominance. 

For Manchester City, this victory marks their fourth triumph in the FA Youth Cup, adding to their previous titles in 2020, 2008, and 1986.
