Chelsea youngsters make it nine in a row and maintain three-year home record

  • Chelsea Under-18s now nine points clear of Arsenal
  • Have won nine games in a row
  • Have not conceded in five matches
  • Unbeaten at Cobham since April 2015

Chelsea’s Under-18s beat Leicester 2-0 on Tuesday afternoon to make it nine wins in a row and leave them nine points clear at the top of the table.

Both goals came in the second half at the Blues’ Cobham training ground – where the Under-18s have not lost for almost three years. Jody Morris’ side have also now kept five consecutive clean sheets.

Martell Taylor-Crossdale’s penalty put them ahead and Charlie Brown sealed the victory.

Taylor-Crossdale’s spot-kick – the striker’s 19th goal of the season – came after Tariq Lamptey was fouled in the area.

And Taylor-Crossdale (pictured above) set up the second goal by crossing for Brown to score from close range.
