FA Youth Cup Semi-Final, First Leg
April 10th 2011, 12.30pm
Stamford Bridge, West London
|Chelsea U18s||3-2||Manchester United U18s|
|Chalobah 30, 42||Lingard 56|
|Devyne 72||Pogba 77|
A storming second half display by United’s youngsters has left their FA Youth Cup Semi-Final with Chelsea finely poised, the West London club leading 3-2 after Sunday’s enthralling first leg at Stamford Bridge.
Trailing 2-0 at the break to two set-piece efforts from Blues centre-back Nathaniel Chalobah and second-best throughout that first 45 minutes, Paul McGuinness’ side responded superbly after the break and goals from Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba – albeit sandwiching an against the run of play strike from Chelsea’s Bobby Devyne – were the least they deserved for an eye-catching and dominant second half performance that will give the Reds plenty of encouragement when they seek to overturn a one goal deficit at Old Trafford in ten days time.

With the first team fighting for silverware on three fronts and big games coming thick and fast, it’s easy to overlook the fact that it’s not just United’s senior side that look set for a thrilling (and hopefully trophy-laden) climax to the campaign. Warren Joyce’s reserves are in hot pursuit of a treble of their own, while United’s U18s are 180 minutes away from the FA Youth Cup final, with the first leg of their last four clash with Chelsea taking place at Stamford Bridge this Sunday.

With the regional structure of academy football in England it’s not often that United and Arsenal meet at this level, and indeed you have to go back to April 2007 for the last encounter between the two sides. It was quite some game though…

Ewood Park, Blackburn
|Blackburn Rovers U18s||3-0||Manchester United U18s|
|Lowe 38, 87||–||–|
High on confidence after six straight wins and impressive Youth Cup progress against Birmingham and Burnley, United’s U18s were brought crashing back down to earth at Ewood Park, as a 3-0 reverse saw them exit this year’s competition at the fifth round stage.
Whilst Blackburn were flattered somewhat by a scoreline that scarcely reflected a match that had been even and closely-fought for the most part, there’s no doubt that Rovers deserved to go through. The first goal was always going to be crucial, and it went to the hosts just before the break, Jason Lowe capitalising on some slack defending from a controversially-awarded corner. Paul McGuinness’ side fell further behind twenty minutes from time as Rovers skipper Grant Hanley doubled his side’s lead, and when Conor Devlin saved a late penalty only to see Lowe net the rebound, the Reds knew it wasn’t to be their day.

With the Reds’ Youth Cup third round tie with Birmingham City just a fortnight away, the pool of available players for Paul McGuinness to choose from for that match seems to be dwindling by the day.
