Chelsea rout Arsenal to win FA Youth Cup again

Postado Mai 01, 2018

Chelsea continued their dominance of the under-18 scene by demolishing Arsenal 4-0 last night to lift the FA Youth Cup for the fifth straight season.

Chelsea had come from behind to win 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Friday before completing the rout at the Emirates Stadium.

The floodgates then opened after the break as the excellent Callum Hudson-Odoi scored two goals and set up another for substitute Tino Anjorin to bolster the scoreline.

They are the first team since Manchester United in the 1950s to win five consecutive FA Youth Cup crowns.

Arsenal keeper Joao Virginia denied Castillo and Hudson-Odoi but the latter made no mistake from Daishawn Redan's cross on the counter-attack.

It also underlined Hudson-Odoi's status as one of Chelsea's top prospects, with the 17-year-old forward a constant threat to the Arsenal defence. He added his second goal with another clinical finish, holding off two defenders before slotting a low shot inside the far post.
