Chelsea U23s suffered a heavy 1-4 loss to their Arsenal counterparts in a Premier League 2 game decided at the home of the Gunners.
Arsenal fielded a strong team with first team players like Danny Welbeck, Carl Jenkinson, Rob Holding and goalkepper Emiliano Martinez all starting for the Gunners.
Meanwhile Chelsea fielded two Nigerians in Ike Ugbo and defender Ola Aina, and the Anglo Nigerian duo endured mixed fortunes during the course of the game.
Aina failed to inspire the Chelsea backline as they conceded two goals in each half while Ugbo, who is well known for his goal scoring abilities didn’t disappoint when he had the chance to reduce the deficit for his team.
Ugbo poked home a rebound from a well hit drive from Musonda which Martinez spilled into the path of the 18 year old forward, who now has 12 goals for the U23s of Chelsea.
