Chelsea are into the quarterfinals of the UEFA Youth League after thumping AC Milan yesterday.

A Lewis Baker free-kick at the end of the first half gave the hosts the lead before goals after the interval from Jeremie Boga, Alex Kiwomya and between those two, a Baker strike from 35 yards settled the tie.

Milan grabbed a late consolation through an Andrea Petagna header but Dermot Drummy's side comfortably secured a last-eight home tie against either Schalke or Real Sociedad.

Blues coach Drummy told chelseafc.com: "You have to be really pleased to beat AC Milan. They were very complimentary before the game about the way we play so if that's getting around Europe then we're very happy. It's nice to receive those compliments from people like Filipo Inzaghi who've done great things in football."
