Chelsea U18 are Kings of the FA Youth Cup, and the young Blues who are defending champions beat Leicester City U18 side yesterday, to reach the semifinals of the FA Youth Cup, for the eighth time in a row.
Jody Morris made two changes from our 4-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday in round five as Josh Grant and George McEachran replaced Luke McCormick and Joseph Colley in the side, with the Blues retaining their 4-3-3 shape.
Interestingly, Chelsea U18 are yet to concede in this competition, and it continued that way, as they beat Leicester City 1-0 on Wednesday evening.
The win didn’t come easy, as the young Blues were frustrated for long periods but found the tie’s solitary goal midway through the second half when Ike Ugbo powered in a header from Reece James’s cross.
This was by far the hardest tournament the Chelsea youth team have played this season, and they will now face a two-legged semi-final as they bid to win the competition for the fourth year in a row.
