Match report: U18s edged out by Chelsea at Kirkby


Liverpool U18s suffered disappointment in their final home game of the season as they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in a hard-fought contest at Kirkby on Saturday.

Neil Critchley’s team went behind early on to Tariq Uwakwe’s effort from the edge of the box but were in charge for large spells from them on, particularly in the second half.

However, while their efforts arguably deserved at least a point, the young Reds were denied by a combination of wasteful finishing and the opposition goalkeeper as they had to settle for a one-goal defeat.

Perhaps unsurprisingly for a team that had won the FA Youth Cup in midweek , the visitors made a confident start to proceedings.
