These 2 Rochdale youngsters are guaranteed to cause Man City u23s problems

Rochdale has had an average start to the season, but certain performances from certain players show that they can cause their opponents an issue or two on their day…

Rochdale have won two, drawn three and lost one league game in EFL League One so far, leaving them in eleventh place. With regards to Rochdale’s usual form, things are actually on the up in Rochdale this season.

When The Dale beat Bolton 5-2 in the Football League Trophy, the weakness of their opponent doesn’t give much insight as to how Rochdale will cope with the competition.

However, some performances from their young players have given an insight as to what Rochdale could offer this season. These 2 youngsters, in particular, could see them surpass Man City u23s in the next round of the Football League Trophy…

Callum Camps

This 23-year-old local lad striker will be keen to put in a good performance against Man City u23s. He has 2 goals and 3 assists in 6 games so far in League One and is fast becoming one of competition’s most prolific forwards.

Aaron Morley

Morley, who is only 19, has become a first-choice midfielder for Barry-Murphy’s side. He has featured in 5 league games, scoring 2 goals and putting in some fantastic performances.

With Morley in the middle of the park and Camps up top, Rochdale’s attacking threat could be brutal over the coming years should they keep hold of these talents. Should they both feature against Man City u23s, they will most certainly cause their fellow footballing youngsters some serious problems.

Two Man City youngsters to keep an eye tonight against Chelsea

The Football Manc Cave are looking at two players who you should look out for tonight in Man City’s Under 23 clash with Chelsea.

The development squads at Man City come with some very high standards and talent. Nothing else should be expected with the standards of the first team and the pressure Pep Guardiola put on his squad.

The Under 23’s are in action against Chelsea’s youth and we’ve picked out a couple of players who will make a difference for Man City and probably end up breaking into the first team squad sooner rather than later.

Nabili Touaizi

The striker managed to bag the only Man City goal in the Under 23’s clash with Tottenham. The Spanish forward arrived at City from Valencia with a lot to prove. He’s also proved that his pace is something that causes problems for the opposition. The 18 year old has been a part of Spain’s youth sides and is in contract with Man City until 2020, so he will be looking to make an impression before then. He made headlines when he joined City so he’ll be looking to make them again for all the right reasons.

Taylor Harwood-Bellis

Another player that stood out against Tottenham was Harwood-Bellis for his defending ability. He managed a few great clearances and interceptions. He’s also only 17 years old and being given a chance already at this level rather than just academy. Man City have brought him through the ranks of their youth and he is contracted until 2021 so he’s got more time to develop, grow and impress in his career.
