Chelsea hit seven goals without reply as they dumped Wolverhampton Wanderers out of the FA Youth Cup at the EBB Stadium in Aldershot this evening.
The Blues went goal-crazy in their last-16 tie as they equalled their best result in the competition this millennium.
Despite the one-sided scoreline, it was the visitors who should have taken the lead when they were awarded a penalty kick but Blues keeper Jake Askew saved Theo Corbeanu’s effort from 12 yards.
Wolves were made to pay for that miss when Ian Maatsen fired home the opener for The Blues after being picked out by Tino Anjorin.
Anjorin was again unselfish 10 minutes later when he set up Marcel Lewis to score before the Chelsea striker finally got his own name on the scoresheet when he danced his way through the Wolves defence before slotting home.
Chelsea were to go into the break with a 4-0 lead when Joe Young made a real hash of a routine pass and Lewis took full advantage to place the ball into the unguarded net.
The Blues had to wait until late in the second period to add to their lead when Armando Broja was tripped in the area and Lewis converted the resulting penalty kick to complete his hat-trick.
Substitute Miles Peart-Harris made it 6-0 when he successfully connected with a cross before Dynel Simons tapped home an easy seventh goal to complete the rout.
