Chelsea's U21 side will look to jump to the top of their group with a win today against Fulham
Chelsea's senior squad won't be in action until tomorrow, but that doesn't mean there isn't any footie to be watching this afternoon. The U21 side will be in action as they head down the road to Craven Cottage to face Fulham.
The game will be live on Chelsea TV for any of you with a subscription, and the starting lineup and substitutes are as follows:
The second phase of the U21 season is four games in now, and Chelsea sit in second place in Group 1 with nine points. Only the winner of this group will advance to the final stage, and while results at the U21 level are never a priority, it would be awfully fun to see the youngsters playing for the first title of the new league.
While extremely young for this age group, the starting lineup that Chelsea have put out is basically a Nathan Ake away from the strongest lineup they can field without their loanees returning to Cobham. As always, keep things civil, and don't link or direct to illegal streams.
