Chelsea U-18s beat Arsenal 7-1 on aggregate to win the FA Youth Cup for a fifth consecutive season.

The young Blues beat Arsenal 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in the first leg and then beat Arsenal U18s 4-0 in the second leg at the Emirates.

Charlie Gilmour’s half volley in the 11th minute at the Emirates ended any hopes of an Arsenal comeback before Callum Hudson-Odoi bagged a brace either side of a neat finish from Tino Anjorin.

By winning the FA Youth Cup for a fifth consecutive year, Chelsea have matched the record set by Manchester United’s youth team that won the FA Youth Cup between 1953 and 1957.

This is also the seventh Youth Cup triumph since 2010.

Congratulations.
