Chelsea youngsters react on Twitter after Under-21 Cup defeat

Some of Chelsea’s players posted on Twitter after their extra-time defeat against Arsenal in the Under-21 Premier League Cup. 

The quarter-final exit came despite the young Blues being on top for much of the game – and it was their first loss in 15 matches.

A crowd of more than 1,200 saw the Gunners progress to the semi-finals courtesy of Benik Afobe’s goal after 106 minutes at Aldershot’s Recreation Ground.

Captain Nathan Ake tweeted:  “Shame about the result, team worked hard. Thanks for the people who came to watch.”

Lewis Baker, who hit the bar shortly before Arsenal’s goal, wrote: “Battled from the 1minute tonight just couldn’t get the goal we needed with all the chances we had! On to fridays game boys #headsup.”

Andreas Christensen, who almost equalised, simply tweeted: “Hate losing! #cfc #deservedmore #CfcFamily.”

The team return to league action this Friday with a match against West Brom.
