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.

Perhaps unsurprisingly for a team that had won the FA Youth Cup in midweek , the visitors made a confident start to proceedings.
But, while they had dominated the early exchanges, there was a degree of good fortune in the way Chelsea took the lead.
