Everything seems to be working for the Blues senior team, and it seems the young Blues are following the same path.

Chelsea Under-18s came from behind to secure an impressive 4-1 win against Southampton U18s at Cobham this morning.

With just 12 minutes played, Michael Obafemi fired the visitors into the lead with a powerful volley. The first half ended that way, and the Blues went into the interval trailing behind the young Saints.

Whatever the coach Jody Morris said at halftime could probably have worked, as the Blues youngsters came firing on all cylinders in the second period.

Within eight minutes of the restart, Hudson-Odoi equalised for Chelsea, and a Christoph Klarer own goal 2 minutes put Chelsea in front.

Substitute Charlie Brown made it 3 for Chelsea in the 81st minute, just one minute after coming on. The substitute made it 4-1 in the final minute of regulation time with an equally-impressive finish, collecting a pass 16 yards out before steering the ball ruthlessly into the bottom corner for his fifth goal of the campaign.

Jody Morris’s side came into the league encounter on a run of 23 games unbeaten at home, and the win ensured that the record continues.
