Chelsea Youth 0 Tottenham Youth 5

Recommended Posts

A miserable week against Tottenham was completed as the youth team suffered a heavy defeat at Cobham on Saturday morning. A bright start from Chelsea quickly turned into a dark day as two first half goals were followed up with three in the second period to eclipse the reserves' 4-0 defeat against Spurs on Monday evening.

The young Blues were not without chances though, the first of which fell to Jacob Mellis after six minutes. The midfielder found the side netting after bursting into the area and getting on the end of Jacopo Sala's low cross. Adam Phillip and the energetic Conor Clifford had combined to start the move in the midfield.

From there though, it was Spurs who took control and made better use of possession. Nick Heimann saved well before the visitors took the lead after 19 minutes, when a through ball split the Chelsea defence in two and was finished powerfully beyond the German goalkeeper.

Sala and Phillip both worked Spurs goalkeeper Oscar Jansson before the deficit was extended just after the half hour, when a smart passing move was fed into the area and despatched past Heimann's outstretched left arm.

Before half-time there was one more chance at either end, first Clifford lifted Ben Gordon's cross over the crossbar from close range, and then Spurs sent a free-kick from the edge of the area just over the Chelsea bar.

Phillip had another chance at the beginning of the second half as Dermot Drummy's side looked to close the gap, but headed straight at Jansson. Five minutes later the game was over.

Schoolboy Rohan Ince dived in inside the box and the referee pointed to the spot. The penalty sent Heimann the wrong way and Spurs three up. Drummy replaced recent signing Gokhan Tore with Milan Lalkovic on the right flank.

A fourth goal arrived with 22 minutes remaining, when Dean Parrett, who made his Tottenham first team debut last month, rifled in a low shot from 25 yards.

Phillip was again denied by the goalkeeper after outmuscling his marker, before a fifth Tottenham goal came three minutes from time, when a long ball was chased down and slotted past Heimann.
