Chelsea Under-18s have continued their solid start to the new season with a 4-3 victory over West Ham United at Cobham this afternoon.
The Blues defeated champions Arsenal last weekend and they were just as impressive in their latest fixture as they saw off West Ham United.
The scoreline remained goalless for 27 minutes in Surrey until Armando Broja capitalised on a sloppy West Ham United clearance and he played in Myles Peart-Harris to score from close range.
The visitors responded well and they were level a minute before the break when Veron Parkes ghosted in to head the ball home from a corner kick. It was soon to get even better for the East Londoners with Seb Nebyla bundling the ball over the line after Blues keeper Lucas Bergstrom had saved Dan Chesters’ original effort.
Chelsea were level three minutes into the second half when Broja was fouled in the area and the forward stepped up to successfully dispatch the penalty kick.
Dynel Simeu then put The Blues 3-2 up when he nudged the ball into the net after a mistake from West Ham United defender Josh Okotcha and Broja soon capitalised on further woeful defending to put his side further ahead.
West Ham United pulled a goal back late on through a deflected Sam Caiger effort but it was too little, too late as Chelsea claimed another impressive three points.
Chelsea are back in action next weekend when they travel to Southampton in the Under-18 Premier League.
