Last Saturday the U18's fell to back to back defeats at the hands of Southampton. Manager Viveash made 7 changes from the team that lost to West Ham last week. Collins was in goal with a back 4 of Tomori, Brady, Clarke-Salter and DaSilva. The midfield was Houghton, Colkett and Palmer with the forward line of Cole, Mitchell and Kandi.

Chelsea started the game well creating some good chances with Reece Mitchell coming close with a header and Charlie Colkett screwing a decent opportunity wide but the good start wouldn't last for long and Southampton started to assert themselves and the game would become more even. With chances few and far between the deadlock would get broken by Southampton just before the break as they found space on the edge of the Chelsea box and a quick lay off and shot saw the ball fly past Collins.

Charly Musonda came on at the start of the second half for Clarke-Salter and it would of course be a change that would give Chelsea some impetus and they would start positive with Palmer driving forward and Mitchell earning a free kick that turned out a bit soft from Colkett. But Chelsea would find themselves further behind as some scrappy football around the Chelsea box saw Chelsea unable to clear and Southampton lifted the ball over the back 4 to an on running player who would volley again past Collins.

It would then be Chelsea's chance to score after Kasey Palmer was fouled in the box and Charlie Colkett would step up to take the penalty and score that penalty to bring Chelsea once again within touching distance of Southampton. Chelsea would then push for the equaliser with Kasey Palmer having 2 good chances put not testing the keeper enough. Top scorer Solanke would then come very close to scoring from a corner only being kept out by a defender hitting it onto the post and then somehow stopping it from going over the line.

Mitchell and then Musonda would both have chances to score but again could not get the contact on the shot that was needed and Chelsea ended up losing the game 2 -1 and will have felt that they should have at least got something out of the game. Highlights of the game are here:
