Memorable FA Youth Cup quarter-final ties of the last 10 years
Our Under-18s welcome Millwall to Stamford Bridge in the quarter-final of this year’s FA Youth Cup on Thursday 27 February. The tie is live on the 5th Stand App, kick-off 7pm.
A strong, powerful attacking box-to-box midfielder, he loves to shoot and score goals, which was demonstrated in the 2018 FA Youth Cup final when he completed our 7-1 rout against Arsenal with the final goal at the Emirates. That was his 23rd youth team appearance and eighth goal of the campaign, all while still a schoolboy. Anjorin also made his UEFA Youth League debut in our 4-2 group-stage win over Atletico Madrid.
As an England Under-18 international, Anjorin played at the European Championship for the Under-17s in May 2018 before signing his first professional contract at the club in November 2018. The following year saw an England Under-19 debut for Anjorin who scored his maiden goal during his third appearance for the young Lions against Bosnia in a European Under-19 Championship qualifier.
After a string of impressive development squad performances and still only aged 17, Anjorin was a debutant under Frank Lampard in Chelsea's 7-1 Carabao Cup victory over Grimsby Town in September 2019.
