Development Squad: Chelsea 2-2 Derby County

Chelsea’s search for an Under-23 victory will go on for at least another week after they shared a 2-2 draw at home to Derby County on Monday evening at Aldershot in a fixture headlined by Kurt Zouma’s first match action since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in February. He was at the centre of attention in the first half, conceding a penalty from which Callum Guy eventually scored after the…

The streak of a Chelsea loanee scoring in every single full, non-international break, week of the 2016-17 season so far continued this week with three more strikes to take us to 42 overall for the campaign.

A rather disappointing first half in which they were too passive and often intimidated by their more experienced foes saw them trailing 2-0 to goals from Ollie Watkins and David…

Headliners The first of those goals was scored by Lucas Piazon, who helped Fulham to a 4-2 win away to Barnsley. It was a first victory in six games for the West London side, who…
