Stat Attack: Young Blues

15/06/2017

Over the past few years, Chelsea's academy players have been going from strength to strength.

This season, the U18s capped a fantastic campaign by winning a famous treble: the Under-18 Premier League south section, the Under-18 Premier League and the FA Youth Cup!

Did you know? Chelsea's Under-18s have won the FA Youth Cup six times in the last eight years!

The young Blues now sit second in the competitions all-time rankings with eight, only two wins away from matching Manchester United's record.

Although they won the Under-18 Premier League for the first time, it was their third south section title in a row!

Martell Taylor-Crossdale finished the season as the Under-18 Premier League top goalscorer with 21 goals!

The Premier League 2 squad also had a good season, competing in the Checkatrade Trophy for the first time.

The Under-21 players faced Swindon Town, Exeter City and Oxford United in the group stages. Oxford went on to make the final, but ony after an incredible match against Chelsea.

Did you know? Adi Viveash's side and Oxford had the longest penalty shoot-out in English football history, which ended in a 13-12 win for the Blues!

After their club successes, it's no surprise that plenty of the young Blues have been representing their country at youth level.

Fikayo Tomori and Jake Clarke-Salter, along with Chelsea academy product Dominic Solanke, all played for England's Under-20 team as they won the FIFA U20 World Cup.

Dominic Solanke won the tournament's golden boot award, with four goals. Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba and Sergio Aguero have all won the U20 World Cup golden boot before.

Did you know? Tomori and Clarke-Salter played in the final of the competition, as England won its first World Cup at any level since 1966!

Reece James, Josh Grant, Tariq Uwakwe, Martell Taylor-Crossdale, and Iké Ugbo, meanwhile, were playing in the Toulon Tournament for England.

England won the competition for the second year running, while Ruben Sammut and Scotland came third.

Three more young Blues are playing for England in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship which starts on Friday.

Nathaniel Chalobah, Lewis Baker and Tammy Abraham are all looking to add another trophy to the cabinet!
