Chelsea youngsters reach FA Youth Cup final!

11/04/2018

Chelsea have reached the FA Youth Cup final for the seventh year in a row!

With an aggregate score of 26-0 over the course of six games, Chelsea Under 18s sailed to yet another final in the cup.

The young Blues were already 3-0 up from the away leg, and they managed to score even more goals at home!

It was a fairly different team than the one that beat Birmingham in the first leg, with manager Jody Morris making five changes.

It took half an hour before the Blues first found the back of the net, after a number of chances, one of which hitting the woodwork.

Moments later, with the woodwork still rattling, the Blues came close to scoring again. This time from the combination of McEachran and Hudson-Odoi, who neatly made their way through the Birmingham defence, finding Tino Anjorin, who fired the ball towards the top corner, only to have to headed away by a Birmingham defender.

The confidence from this move only fuelled Chelsea’s energy, which was rewarded at the half hour mark.

After being awarded a free-kick around 25 yards out after a pull on Hudson-Odoi, the forward stepped out and curled a beautiful ball into the back of the net.

After breaking the deadlock, the goals kept coming!

Eight minutes later, the prolific Charlie Brown scored his seventh goal in his seventh appearance! This was started in midfield by Anjorin who found his striker in the box, before Brown finished the move by slotting the ball into the bottom left with his left foot.

With half time approaching, the Blues were still hungry for more! Hudson-Odoi continued to dominate the game. He ran down the left wing before cutting his way infield, then striking the ball into the bottom far corner. 3-0!

After a brilliant first half, we were 6-0 up on aggregate, meaning it would be incredibly difficult for the visitors to get back in it. Especially when Chelsea were still attacking with so much power!

After a couple more close chances on goal, Tariq Uwakee managed to find the net, following up from his goal in the first leg of the fixture. Hudson-Odoi was once again involved, finding Uwakee with a low cross from the left, who then buried the ball deep into the net.

Though Birmingham tried, they struggled to get anything by such a rampant young Chelsea side. We go into the final with bags of confidence for the win!
