Chelsea U18 comfortable winners against Leicester

Chelsea enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City U18s yesterday.

A ninth consecutive win in all competitions for the Blues youth team hands them a nine-point lead at the top of the U18 Premier League South after goals from Martell Taylor-Crossdale and Charlie Brown settled a competitive contest at Cobham.

Coach Jody Morris opted for two up front and his strikers rewarded that faith by netting the second-half goals that separated the Blues from a spirited Leicester City. A penalty kick 16 minutes into the second half broke the deadlock as Taylor-Crossdale converted before Brown doubled the Chelsea lead with a close-range finish 10 minutes later.

The victory takes their youngsters nine points clear of second-placed Arsenal, having played a game more but with only five remaining.
