Chelsea U18 have started the season in excellent form, and continued in that manner as they the beat the Hammers youth side 7-0 at home in the Under-18 Premier League.
The win makes it 27 from a possible 30 points with an emphatic victory at Cobham.
The scoreline was well deserved as the hosts led from the third minute and completely dominated their London rivals. Jon Russell started the scoring, followed by Marc Guehi’s header, Clinton Mola’s rocket and Tariq Uwakwe’s effort on the rebound to hand Jody Morris’s side a 4-0 lead at the interval.
Charlie Brown’s introduction was an ominous sign for West Ham and the 18-year-old smashed the crossbar before netting a 10-minute hat-trick late on to put a nice gloss on a wonderful morning for our Under-18s, who are now 46 matches undefeated at home in all competitions.
The team return to action next weekend with an Under-18 Premier League Cup tie against Newcastle United.
