BRIGHTON OR CARDIFF IN UNDER-21 PREMIER LEAGUE CUP

The Chelsea Under-21 side have been drawn to play either Brighton and Hove Albion or Cardiff City away in the last 32 of the inaugural Under-21 Premier League Cup.

Those two sides meet next Tuesday 29 October in Brighton, and we will take on the winners in the week beginning Monday 18 November.

It will be Chelsea's first appearance in the Under-21 Premier League Cup, which was launched this season to tie in with the Under-21 Premier League, itself only launched last year. Fifty-two academies entered the competition at its outset, with the fixtures being played on a regional basis until the Round of 16, whereupon the draw becomes national.
