PALACE'S U18 side demolished Manchester City last Saturday at the club's training ground in Beckenham to grab their fifth win in their last six games.

Garry Issott's side are now third in the Barclays U18s Premier League table and they took the lead after 15 minutes when Derek Teiku, who is on trial from Fulham at the moment, received a fantastic through-ball and finished past the City goalkeeper with ease to continue his impressive form.

It got even better just a few minutes later when Connor Dymond found the net from the penalty spot after Alistair Gordon had been brought down in the box.

And the penalty king scored his second soon after in impressive style, back-heeling a cross from Jerome Williams on the left to beat the City custodian.

But the deficit was reduced before the break when City forced Palace defender Ryan Inniss to put the ball past his own goalkeeper David Gregory when attempting to clear a dangerous cross.

No changes were made at half-time, but the young Eagles continued to press forward with some eye-catching football.

And they extended their lead shortly into the second period thanks to Javen Palmer.

The striker received a pass from Elijan Gabsi and found the bottom corner with a fantastic finish.

City then hit the post in a bid to get back into the game, but they did make the scoreline a bit more respectable when Joe Nuttall headed past Gregory to make it 4-2.

Despite the slight hope for the away side, Palace went back on the offensive and finally got a fifth goal when Inniss atoned for his own goal with a powerful header.

It's the third time this season the Palace youngsters have scored five goals having crushed Liverpool and Middlesbrough earlier this season.

The match against City was their last of 2012 with a break now until the start of the new year.

Crystal Palace U18s: Gregory, Gordon, Williams, Innis, Croll, Dymond, Gabsi, Grey, Tieku, Palmer, Johnson-Cole.
