Chelsea were the big hitters in the Barclays U18 Premier League today as they put SIX goals past Reading.
Ambrose Gnahore scored the first of the morning as he got involved in some neat interchanging play with Kasey Palmer and finished the Palmer’s cheeky back heel lay-off.
Palmer created the second goal too when he threaded through Dom Solanke to double Chelsea’s lead.
Solanke made it three just before half-time when he pounced on a defensive error from the visitors.
After his hat-trick in the FA Youth Cup last week, Solanke scored his second treble in as many games by capitalizing on another piece of controversial defending at the back from Reading.
Charly Musonda added a fifth from the edge of the box and Gnahore scored his second of the match just before the end to round off a superb day for Ade Viveash’s lads from 18-yards.
The result means Chelsea remain fifth in the Southern Division but puts pressure on the teams above them to keep winning.
The league now breaks for Christmas and returns on 4th January.
West Ham 2-1 Leicester City, Middlesbrough 2-1 Everton, Stoke City 0-2 Sunderland, Southampton 1-1 Fulham, Blackburn Rovers 3-1 Manchester United, Arsenal 0-1 Norwich City, Chelsea 6-0 Reading.
