Chelsea U18 0-3 Tottenham U18 – Blues handed first home defeat in three years as Spurs youngsters impress

Published

on

 

Tottenham U18 caused a nasty upset against our London rivals Chelsea, as our youngsters beat the Blues at Cobham in an exciting 0-3 victory. To have notched up such a huge victory against a side that has been exemplary in all aspects of the game is truly commendable.

Reo Griffiths, Rodel Richards and Dilan Markanday scored some stunning goals to put us in the driving seat and it is safe to say that we deserved that win. As if beating Chelsea was not enough, this win marks the Blues’ first home defeat at Cobham in the last 3 years.

A win is definitely important for us at this stage but more than anything else, the calmness and maturity displayed by our U18 side deserves praise. Our defenders did a brilliant job at the back and our attackers left no stone unturned to threaten and dominate the home side’s backline.

Griffiths scored a screamer of an opening goal to put us in the lead. Although we were the better team in the first-half, Chelsea were awarded a penalty right after the break. A few nervy moments followed but De Bie made a brilliant save to deny the hosts.

The save proved to be a turning point in the game since Chelsea could not come back into the game despite fighting hard. Eventually, Rodel Richards chipped in with the second goal in the 74th minute which was followed by Dilan Markanday converting Tariq Hinds’ cross to smash the third and final goal of the match.

Markanday was truly a standout performer for the side and he was a constant threat to Chelsea. He was aided by a flurry of crosses and ample support from right-back Maxi Tainio and the duo linked up quite well to deliver stunning results on the field.

As a Tottenham fan, it is heart-warming to see our youngsters perform like this and here’s to hoping they continue their fine form.
