At Stamford Bridge last night, Chelsea`s U18 Team swept aside the challenge presented by Manchester City to win the 2017 FA Youth Cup.

The victory means that Chelsea have now won the FA Youth Cup for four consecutive seasons, a remarkable achievement.

With the tie delicately poised after the first leg had ended 1-1, a good sized crowd were inside Stamford Bridge last night, including the likes of Roman Abramovich, Antonio Conte, John Terry and Frank Lampard.

Chelsea started the better of the two teams and the Manchester City keeper, Aro Muric, was forced into making two decent saves. However, the keeper couldn`t prevent Chelsea going ahead on the night (and on aggregate) when Trevor Chalobah, the younger brother of Nathaniel, headed home from a corner.

Dominating the play, Chelsea increased their lead on the night to 2-0 (and 3-1 on aggregate) when an acrobatic finish from Ike Ugbo left Muric, in the City goal, with no chance of making a save.

Leading 2-0 at the break, Manchester City got back into the game when Lukas Nmecha was on hand to finish off a cross from Luke Bolton, making it 2-1 on the night 9and 3-2 on aggregate).

The goal gave Manchester City hope but as the visitors pressed for an equalizer they were to be undone when Callum Hudson-Odoi scored to make it 3-1 on the night (and 4-2 on aggregate) before Dujon Stirling cut inside to score a fine goal for Chelsea to make it 4-1 on the night (and 5-2 on aggregate).

With the game and the trophy now safe, Cole Dasilva added another goal to the Chelsea tally making it 5-1 on the night (and 6-2 on aggregate).

Our congratulations go to Jody Morris and his entire entourage for continuing our marvellous run in this competition.

  • The lads were superb last night, as they have been for the last few years. As long as their attitude remains good, I believe that all of that squad can have good careers in football, many in the Prem or at worst the Championship, pretty sure a few will make it with us. The stand out POTENTIAL for me is Stirling, good ball control, lightning pace & real strength; in fact I’d have him on our bench next season to come on with 20 minutes to go. In seasons to come, he will be an upgrade on Willian.

  • So what? Their chances of EVER getting a spot in the first team are slim to none and slim just left town.

  • Doesn’t have to be true just need to recognise potential it’s probably staring club in the face could save us a fortune
