Kakuta on mark as Chelsea beaten by Celtic in friendly

Chelsea youngsters were beaten 5-3 by Celtic reserves in a friendly yesterday.

In a game watched by Carlo Ancelotti and Ray Wilkins, both defences struggled to cope with the creativity of the opposition, and there were plenty of chances on a snowy Parkhead afternoon.

Conor Clifford, Gael Kakuta and Josh McEachran struck Chelsea's goals.

Blues coach Steve Holland told the club's website afterwards: "It was a really good game of football with both teams playing some good stuff, and neither defence could cope with the other's attack.

"It was an open, attacking game, with some disappointments and some pluses."
