Match Previews

Smith previews Chelsea cup clash

15 January 2018

ALBION's under-18s boss Jamie Smith says his side are excited to face Chelsea in the FA Youth Cup fourth round on Wednesday night (ko 7pm)

The Baggies beat Leyton Orient 4-0 in the last round before Christmas to set up the tie at Aldershot's EBB Stadium.

“We’ve watched Chelsea a number of times and obviously they have some good players,” said Smith.

“But you want to play against the top teams and take on challenges like this one. 

“We had a good confidence boost on the weekend by winning 5-2 against Wolves. It was nice to score some goals and we played well, but there’s still plenty for us to work on.

“There’s now a lot of excitement around the Chelsea match and the fact that the FA Youth Cup is such a big tournament. 

“The game will be a good test for us so we’re really looking forward to it.”

The winners will play either AFC Bournemouth or Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round.

ALBION's under-18s were defeated 7-0 by defending champions Chelsea in the FA Youth Cup fourth round.

The Blues took the lead on 10 minutes when Marc Guehi found space from a corner and guided a header into the back of the net.

The Baggies almost got themselves level 16 minutes later when Rekeem Harper let fly from distance, but his shot smashed the post and bounced away.

Chelsea then scored twice more before half time through Callum Hudson-Odoi's individual effort and Daishawn Redan's toe-poke, though Callum Morton went close for Albion when he flashed a shot wide.

With 49 minutes gone Redan tapped in from close range to put the home side even further ahead, and Hudson-Odoi completed his brace three minutes later.

Faustino Anjorin then got in on the action for Chelsea on 59 minutes before substitute Martell Taylor Crossdale rounded off the scoreline in stoppage time.

ALBION: Przybek, Soleman, Ferguson, Healy, Harmon; Tulloch (Meredith 58), Harper, Wilding, Clayton-Phillips (Rogers 90); Azaz (Brown 77), Morton.

Substitutes: Griffiths, Morrison.
