Under-18s beaten at Chelsea

20 January 2018

Norwich City's Under-18s fell to a harsh 2-0 defeat away to league leaders Chelsea on Saturday, despite dominating for long periods.

Max Aarons fired wide for City on the volley early on, before Anthony Spyrou was twice denied by resilient defending from the hosts.

The visitors offered the greater threat throughout, and they were unfortunate to go behind on the half-hour mark when Tino Anjorin drove forward to finish smartly.

Spyrou went close for a third time in the second period, only for goalkeeper Karlo Ziger to keep out two efforts in quick succession.

With David Wright's youngsters pushing hard for an equaliser, they were undone on the break five minutes from time when Marcel Lavinier fired home.

City XI: Dickerson; Thomas (Parsons, 46), Kamal, Ekumah, Odusina, Payne (c), Aarons, Barnes, Spyrou, Idah, Thompson-Brissett (Mehmeti, 74). Subs not used: Blair (GK), Keller, Tanimowo,
