 Sierra Leonean born teenager, Trevoh Chalobah helped fired Chelsea Youth U-18 side secured their fourth consecutive F.A Youth Cup thanks to 6-2 aggregate victory over  Manchester City on Wednesday night.

Chalobah who was born in England by a Sierra Leonean parent and is still eligible to play for Sierra Leone opened the scoring just after six minutes before Ike Ugbo’s acrobatic strike put the hosts firmly in control.

Lukas Nmecha pulled one back for the visitors just after half-time but goals from Callum Hudson-Odoi, Dujon Sterling and Cole Dasilva assured victory for Chelsea’s youth side.
