Chelsea development squad came from behind to win their group opener in the Premier League International Cup, on Tuesday evening.

An early goal from Bilal Basacikoglu handed Feyenoord the lead 12 minutes into the game, but the young Blues showed strength to come from behind and take all 3 points.

Chelsea’s job was made easier when goalscorer Bilal Basacikoglu was shown a second yellow card, reducing Feyenoord to 10 men.

Chelsea then controlled proceedings for the remaining 30 minutes but Feyenoord remained resilient and hard-working from back to front.

Chelsea scored the equaliser with 6 minutes left when Dasilva’s bending low free-kick was only parried back into the danger zone by Hahn, where Sterling was on hand to divert the loose ball in.

Less than 60 seconds later and it was 2-1. Substitute, Martell Taylor-Crossdale, played a pivotal part as he supplied from the right and Tomori turned the ball into the far corner after a well-timed run towards the front post.

Chelsea development squad face Dinamo Zagreb in their second group game on Friday 16 December.
