March has been very kind to Chelsea’s youth academy, with the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Matt Miazga and Dominic Solanke being called up to their respective youth national teams.
Chelsea have been condemned for their lack of first team game time given to youth players. I personally would rather see a youth player making youth player-like mistakes than someone on £150,000 per week making youth player-like mistakes — but that’s beside the point.
We know all about the loan army, but who’s the best player in Chelsea’s current youth academy?
Note: I’ve left out the likes of Miazga, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy and Bertrand Traore as Miazga is a new Chelsea player and the latter three have all made senior team appearances this season.
