Under-18s: Leicester City 2-3 Chelsea

Chelsea’s Under-18s got 2019 started in dramatic fashion as they returned home with a 3-2 win at Leicester City that, despite a thoroughly dominant first half, they might not entirely have deserved. Having romped to a 3-0 lead inside the opening fifteen minutes courtesy of a Marcel Lewis brace either side of Jack Wakely’s header, the Blues – under the leadership of Jon Harley in Andy Myers’ absence – should…
