Tonight, our youngsters continue their pursuit of glory.

After obliterating Tottenham Hotspur in the two-legged semi-final of the FA Youth Cup, Chelsea are set to take on Manchester City, in the north-west, in the FA Youth Cup Final first-leg.

The game is being broadcast live on ITV and Chelsea TV, from the Manchester City Academy Stadium with the second leg to follow from Stamford Bridge next Wednesday evening.

Kick-off tonight is 19:45 hours and we`re hoping that our youngsters epic run in the FA Youth Cup continues.

To make the final Chelsea disposed of Cardiff City in the 3rd round 5-0 and in the next round beat Sheffield Wednesday 4-0.

The next round threw up a far stiffer challenge but the youngsters overcame the threat Leicester City presented by winning 1-0.

The semi-final saw Chelsea take on Spurs with the Blues winning the two-legged semi-final 9-2.

As for Manchester City beat Reading 4-0 in the third round, before beating Liverpool 3-1 in the fourth round.

The fifth-round saw City sweep aside Southampton 4-1, before Aston Villa were beaten 2-1 in the sixth round.

In the semi-final City demolished Stoke City 9-2 on aggregate,

It has the promise to be an enthralling encounter, let`s hope the lads do themselves justice in the first-leg.
