FA Youth Cup Semi-Final, First Leg

Stamford Bridge, West London

Chelsea Man Utd
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.

Hendrick 56 Pogba 75

 
After last week’s Youth Cup thriller at Anfield, United’s U18s returned to league action and once again showed their resilience to come from behind twice and earn a point against Derby at Moor Farm.

The Reds found themselves behind in controversial circumstances inside the first minute when Callum Ball’s header was dubiously adjudged to have crossed the line, but Paul McGuinness’ side rallied to control the first half and draw level just before the break with a fine strike from Tom Lawrence. The second half followed a similar pattern, the hosts striking early through captain Jeff Hendrick before drawing level once more with a sensational strike from their own skipper Paul Pogba, and while there was still time left for United to push for the winner their play deserved, Derby held out to ensure the points were shared.
