Goals from Charlie Brown, Martell Taylor-Crossdale, Tino Anjorin, Daishawn Redan, as well as an own-goal were enough as Chelsea development squad beat Plymouth and go through the last-32 of Checkatrade Trophy top of their group
Joe Edward‘s side earned 6 points from three games courtesy of two wins against Swindon Town and the Pilgrims last time out. Chelsea U23’s conceded a disappointing defeat at Newport County, who were eventually knocked out of the competition.
Edwards said after the game: “When you come into a game like tonight, it’s about standing up to the challenge and I thought in that respect the lads were fantastic”.
Chelsea development squad will take on Arsenal on Saturday (the Blues are struggling to raise up the Premier League 2 table, currently 6th in the standings with 14 points from 9 matches) before facing Elfsborg in UEFA Youth League.
