Man City 2-1 Bournemouth: Delap Scores In Debut As City Advance In Carabao Cup

Liam Delap marked his senior debut with a goal as defending champions Manchester City beat Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup third round.

The 17-year-old forward struck in the first half, latching on to Phil Foden’s great ball before placing a composed finish beyond the goalkeeper.

Sam Surridge equalised for Bournemouth when he found space to sweep home.

But Foden secured the win late on, stabbing in after Riyad Mahrez’s shot hit the post.

Victory means City travel to fellow Premier League side Burnley in the fourth round.

It was a memorable night for Delap, who is the son of former Stoke midfielder Rory.

The forward was one of five teenagers handed a start by Pep Guardiola in a youthful City side that also included two 20-year-olds.

Delap has only been a part of the City youth team since last year after leaving Derby but impressed as he led the line, causing problems with his strength and determined runs.
