Last time out

There have been consecutive 2-2 draws for our youngsters in their last two games, both requiring late Chelsea goals to salvage a point. In Manchester, Marc Guehi and Billy Gilmour struck late on, while at Aldershot last time out it was Tariq Lamptey who rescued a draw.


Who could feature?

Development squad regulars Tino Anjorin, Gilmour, Guehi and Ian Maatsen are expected to feature as the table-topping young Blues look to extend their unbeaten start to the season. Last time out at the Bridge, Andy Myers’s side were boosted by the inclusion of Antonio Rudiger and Michy Batshuayi, the latter scoring twice in our 3-0 win over Liverpool.

There has been speculation that Callum Hudson-Odoi could play some part as he continues his comeback from the Achilles injury sustained back in April. Frank Lampard may shed more light on that in his press conference on Friday afternoon prior to the match.
