Chelsea’s UEFA Youth League adventure continues following a handsome 5-2 win over Feyenoord to set up a Quarter Final trip to Real Madrid next month. An action-packed first twenty minutes saw four goals as the Blues flew out of the traps at Aldershot, quickly finding themselves two goals to the good courtesy of Ethan Ampadu and Daishawn Redan, and although Achraf El Bouchataoui quickly halved the deficit, Juan Castillo restored…

February 18, 2018

Michy Batshuayi continues to do the business at Dortmund and scored twice against Atalanta in the Europa League this week to ensure he takes the headlines in this latest edition of the Loan Report.

FA Youth Cup: Tottenham Hotspur 0-2 Chelsea

February 13, 2018

Chelsea reached a ninth consecutive FA Youth Cup Quarter Final after a thoroughly professional and diligent display earned them a 2-0 win away to Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday evening. A goal in either half from Dujon Sterling and Marc Guehi respectively secured another last eight berth for the young Blues, who were measured and composed in every department, barely giving Tottenham a sniff, and looking every inch the favourites they…


Development Squad: Everton 2-1 Chelsea

January 29, 2018

Chelsea’s Development Squad suffered an away defeat on Monday night as they went down 2-1 to Everton at Southport’s Merseyrail Stadium. Fresh off the back of beating Oxford United in the last eight of the Checkatrade Trophy, a result that set up a Semi Final trip to Lincoln City next week, the buoyant Blues were brought back to earth with a bump as a robust and battle-hardened Everton team struck…


Under-18s: Tottenham Hotspur 4-4 Chelsea

December 9, 2017

Chelsea’s Under-18s recovered from three two-goal deficits to claim a point in a remarkable 4-4 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in Enfield on Saturday morning.

A Conor Gallagher penalty gave them hope; hope…


Development Squad: Milton Keynes 0-4 Chelsea

December 6, 2017

Chelsea’s Development squad booked their place in the last sixteen of the Checkatrade Trophy with a resounding 4-0 victory at Milton Keynes on Wednesday evening. With manager Joe Edwards fielding a team including first-team squad players Michy Batshuayi, Eduardo, Kenedy, Kyle Scott, Ethan Ampadu and Charly Musonda against a makeshift home team, the match was never likely to be much of a contest, and so it proved. Batshuayi netted a…


Development Squad: Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

November 25, 2017

Chelsea’s Development Squad suffered Saturday afternoon frustration as they were beaten 3-1 by league leaders Liverpool in an entertaining fixture Cobham. Taking to the academy match pitch just two hours after Jody Morris’ Under-18s had dismantled West Ham, Joe Edwards’ boys faced a much sterner test of their credentials against the Premier League 2’s finest, but they gave a good account of themselves and would have beaten lesser teams with…


Under-18s: Chelsea 7-0 West Ham United

November 25, 2017

Chelsea’s Under-18s recorded a comprehensive 7-0 win against a very youthful West Ham United side at Cobham on Saturday morning. The Hammers, who featured three schoolboys in their defence, and introduced three more as substitutes, were no match for a Chelsea team that blew them away from the off. Jonathan Russell, Marc Guehi, Clinton Mola and Tariq Uwakwe all struck first-half goals, whilst Charlie Brown came off the bench to…


Development Squad: Tottenham Hotspur 2-3 Chelsea

November 18, 2017

Chelsea’s Development Squad recorded their first win since August in defeating Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 at their training ground in Enfield on Saturday. Joe Edwards’ side had shown a marked improvement on the pitch in recent weeks, without the results to show for it, but a Martell Taylor-Crossdale brace and a late penalty from Callum Hudson-Odoi ensured they would pick up a much-needed – and deserved – three points. Dan Davies’…
