Chelsea U18's 2 Norwich City U18's 0

Recommended Posts

Chelsea's youth side were victorious on Saturday thanks to two strikes from forward Islam Feruz.

It was an impressive clean sheet for the young Blues, who were under pressure for long spells but have now won four games on the bounce after a tricky start to the campaign.

Windy conditions at Cobham made it difficult to play too much good football, with goalkeeper Jamal Blackman forced into some early action and a Norwich forward scuffing a good opportunity.

Lewis Baker sent a free-kick over the bar before Feruz put Chelsea in front midway through the first half, finishing well after a John Swift through ball.

The Blues had a second disallowed shortly afterwards, but Feruz did not take long to double the lead, heading home from inside the area after a precise cross picked the diminutive striker out.

Blackman made one further terrific save before the break, and was kept busy throughout the second half as the visitors looked for a way back into the game, Chelsea having to make do with the odd break forward, but the youngsters held on for three further points.
