Youth Chelsea 2-0 Norwich City


Recommended Posts


Posted on: Sat 03 Dec 2011

Chelsea's youth side were victorious on Saturday thanks to two strikes from forward Islam Feruz.

It was an impressive clean sheet for the young Blues, who were under pressure for long spells but have now won four games on the bounce after a tricky start to the campaign.

Windy conditions at Cobham made it difficult to play too much good football, with goalkeeper Jamal Blackman forced into some early action and a Norwich forward scuffing a good opportunity.

Lewis Baker sent a free-kick over the bar before Feruz put Chelsea in front midway through the first half, finishing well after a John Swift through ball.

The Blues had a second disallowed shortly afterwards, but Feruz did not take long to double the lead, heading home from inside the area after a precise cross picked the diminutive striker out.

Blackman made one further terrific save before the break, and was kept busy throughout the second half as the visitors looked for a way back into the game, Chelsea having to make do with the odd break forward, but the youngsters held on for three further points.

Chelsea: Jamal Blackman; Alistair Gordon, Alex Davey (sub Ismail Seremba 70), Nathan Ake (sub Archange Nkumu h-t), Adam Nditi; John Swift, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Lewis Baker; Tom Howard, Islam Feruz, Amin Affane.

Feruz seems to be quite the talent. I know that he is now considered Scottish (hey, we will take them anyway we can get them), and that the Celtic fans were upset that he came to Chelsea. So I hope he makes it for those two reasons alone
