Chelsea Under-18s suffered another defeat in the Under-18 Premier League on Wednesday when they were beaten 2-0 by Tottenham Hotspur at Cobham.
Andy Myers’ side had gone into the match winless in their last three and their form did not improve against an impressive Spurs outfit.
Both sides went close to opening the scoring early on with Armando Broja troubling visiting keeper Jonathan de Bie before Blues keeper Jake Askew saved well from Pheonix Patterson’s shot.
It was Tottenham Hotspur who took the lead when Dilan Markanday teed up Troy Parrott and the forward lashed the ball beyond Askew into the back of the net.
The visitors could have extended their lead before half-time but Brooklyn Lyons-Foster could not beat Askew with his effort while Markanday headed just wide of the post.
The second period saw Clinton Mola fire an effort marginally off target for the hosts before Spurs’ goalscorer Parrott hit both the bar and the post.
The North Londoners doubled their lead shortly after the hour mark when Parrott struck a stunning effort into the corner of the net.
Chelsea fought back with Marcel Lewis forcing a good save from De Bie before Pierre Ekwah Elimby somehow scuffed an effort wide. Myers’ side’s hopes were given a boost when Dermi Lusala was dismissed for a foul when he was the last man but The Blues couldn’t take advantage as they fell to a 2-0 loss.
The Blues are back in action on Saturday when neighbours Fulham are the visitors to Cobham.
