Chelsea Youth Thrash Spurs to Reach Final

Chelsea Youth Thrash Spurs to Reach Final

At around the same time the first team were leaving the pitch, celebrating a fine win against Stoke City, our youth team were emerging from the Stamford Bridge tunnel to take on Spurs in the second leg of the FA Youth Cup semi-final.

Earlier in the week, despite Chelsea dominating most of the game at White Hart Lane, Spurs had kept themselves in the game by restricting Chelsea to a 2-1 win.

However, at Stamford Bridge last night, justice was seen to be done with the Chelsea youngsters producing a thrilling display to beat Spurs 7-1 on the night and 9-2 on aggregate to claim a place in the FA Youth Cup Final against Manchester City.

The action unfolded as thus:

4 minutes - Chelsea 1 Spurs 0, Ike Ugbo scores finishing off a cross from Reece James. (Aggregate 3-1)

18 minutes - Chelsea 2 Spurs 0 - Trevoh Chalobah, younger brother of Nathaniel, converts a cross from six yards out (Aggregate 4-1)

26 minutes - Penalty saved. Spurs miss a penalty after Mason Mount brings down Sterling, Thompson makes a fine save from Sterling.

37 minutes - Chelsea 3 Spurs 0 - Ike Ugbo nets from the penalty spot after Dujon Sterling had been fouled. (Aggregate 5-1)

56 minutes - Chelsea 4 Spurs 0 - Dujon Sterling scores from six yards (Aggregate 6-1)

62 minutes - Chelsea 5 Spurs 0 - Callum Hudson-Odoi nets after racing through to score (Aggregate 7-1)

68 minutes - Chelsea 6 Spurs 0 - Ike Ugbo completes his hat-trick. (Aggregate 8-1)

70 minutes - Chelsea 6 Spurs 1 - Jack Roles reduces the arrears for Spurs, netting rebound after a save from Thompson. (Aggregate 8-2)

85 minutes - Chelsea 7 Spurs 1 - Juan Castillo finishes off a fine move involving Hudson-Odoi to complete Spurs humiliation. (Aggregate 9-2)

Well done to our youngsters on reaching yet another FA Youth Cup Final.

Well done lads. Gives the 1st team a target to aim for. Im confused tho. For quite awhile now theres no doubting our academy has been the best one out there, dominating English league and cups and winning across Europe. And you would imagine that amongst all our lyoung lads there would be a few who were exceptional and that would be targets for the 'big' European clubs. But this has not been the case. Is this because our lads win AS A TEAM' with no one stand out player? Or are we just not good enough to compete with the big Euro teams as far as technique and skills go?

They are always overwhelmed by the prospect of geting into the first team. RLC is a good exampl

Before now, among our rivals, I used to dislike Manure most, but now it's Spuds. This performance by our lads against them, makes for a good reading.

I watched all of the first leg when we played really well but unfortunately had to miss this one due to my beloved Ireland beating England at Rugby. However I did record it and have seen the goals, we were superb. Good to see Jodie Morris has done well

Ironic to think Jodie has come full circle, he certainly knows the pitfalls in a young players life

They are the boss at junior level but get overwhelmed by the competition at top level where they come in as underdogs or should I say newbies,see the way RLC,Chalobah,Aina plays whenever they play with the first team,They have forgotten that they are not the boss like they are at the junior level.Maybe they need to be reminded every time that the difference between the two categories is the HUNGER.....Just my own opinion
