Chelsea U18s win at Liverpool

Tariq Uwakwe’s early goal gave Chelsea’s Under-18 side a 1-0 victory at Liverpool.

The only goal of the game came after five minutes, when Uwakwe’s long-range effort went in via a deflection.

Uwakwe later missed a great chance to double the visitors’ lead but they withstood a spell of second-half pressure to secure the win.

The result keeps the young Blues on course for a possible league and cup double following this week’s Youth Cup final triumph against Manchester City.
