Ed Brand’s boys begin another Youth Cup run at home this weekend, less than a month after we concluded last season’s competition at the final stage at St George’s Park.
It’s been a busy week already for our youngsters, who were in Under-18 Premier League battle against Aston Villa on Saturday at Cobham before an entertaining Under-17 Premier League Cup tie against Southampton saw the young Blues lose out in a seven-goal thriller.
It will be a first Youth Cup meeting with the Tykes since February 2013, when Andreas Christensen, Nathan Ake and Ruben Loftus-Cheek featured in a 3-0 victory at Staines Town.
With little time to dwell on results, we have the chance to return to winning ways in the Youth Cup this weekend and you can support from home by following the live stream on the 5th Stand app or the official Chelsea website. Kick-off on Saturday is 2pm.
