Chelsea U18s hold the advantage after a comfortable 3-0 win over Birmingham in the FA Youth Cup away from home.

Chelsea took a 15th minute lead after Tariq Uwakwe poked home from a cross. Callum Hudson-Odoi doubled the lead before the break with a smart finish inside the near post before Charlie Brown came off the bench to net his first Youth Cup goal.
