Chelsea FC Team Under-18s 2017/2018Chelsea FC Team Under-18s Development Squad 2016/2017

Chelsea’s Under-21s, Under-19s and Under-18s make up the development process for young players at the club. Here are the Chelsea FC Team Under-18s 2017/2018.

Replacing the old reserve league, a new Under-21 nationwide league was introduced for the 2012/13 season. Rather than seasoned professionals not currently selected for the first team, the Under-21 side is more likely to be young players looking to press for a first team breakthrough or a chance to gain experience on loan with another club.

Here we look at the full squad list of the Chelsea FC Team Under-18s 2017/2018.

The Under-18s, also frequently referred to by the traditional ‘youth team’ name, is a side consisting of the youngest players to have been given full-time scholarships by the club having reached the end of statutory education.

The Blues Academy

The Blues are famed for their excellent youth squad development. Chelsea have won multiple youth competitions such as the Youth FA Cup and the League. It’s crazy that not more young players have made it at Chelsea. Youngsters like Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ethan Ampadu are close as they have featured in the first-team lineups. While others may never play for the Chelsea senior team.

The Blues sold Nathaniel Chalobah and Nathan Ake who were close to breaking into the first-team. So it was disappointing that Chelsea sold them.

Right now, Ruben Loftus Cheek is on loan at Crystal Palace while Charly Musonda is at Celtic. It looks as if though, that Loftus-Cheek is the most likely loan player to make it at Chelsea. Other players such as Kurt Zouma may make it but he is at Stoke until the end of the season.

Players with an asterisk also play in the U19s.
