What do we know about Chelsea FC u-19 team? How are the players who play for Chelsea FC u-19 team? How many of the Chelsea FC U-19 squad players do you know? Let us delve a little into the past to know about them.
Chelsea have always been a club who have been competitive in the English league. However, their major breakthrough came with the change of ownership when Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich took over the club in 2003.
Prior to his ownership Chelsea were fighting for a mid-table or sometimes European spot in the English top division. However, with him coming to the club, there was an influx of investment and the Blues suddenly became a powerhouse of the English Premier League overnight.
While legends like John Terry came through the club, other champions like Petr Cech, Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and Claude Makelele were bought to make Chelsea a force to reckon with.
And boy did they perform. Two back to back league titles, along with domestic cup trophies and Champions League ventures wrongly ended by poor refereeing saw Chelsea become a diamond team in Europe.
But it was all done in the back of a massive investment at the club which was evident from Roman’s money and the influx of new players coming in.
Surely the club realised, that they will not be able to keep up this investment if they were to match the desire of winning trophies throughout decades.
Thus came into the concept the idea of building stars rather than buying them. A fantastic youth academy with perfect scouting network and facilities was set up.
The Blues were serious about their approach of brewing talent rather than buying it and boy did they produce. Here we will take a look at the current Chelsea FC U-19 team for the season of 2018-19. The Chelsea U-19 team 2018-19 has a lot of talent.

Players who have cracked the first team
The young u-17 FIFA World Cup has made a big impact since breaking into the team from last season under Antonio Conte. He made an instant impression and has growed in stature ever since.
The flashy winger was enrolled into the first team this season under Sarri. However, the new boss has chosen to play Pedro and Willian ahead of Callum Hudson-Odoi. That however, has not stopped the winger from making an impression.
His limited chances which came in the Europa League and the Carling Cup has seen the young winger create a major impression on fans and pundits around Europe. He has become a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge as he is a local boy who knows the club inside out.
His good mature play with excellent ball control saw interest in him develop in the summer as many clubs wanted to take him away. One in fact made a clear desire about wanting him. It was Bayern Munich.
The Bavarians submitted multiple bids only to be turned down bu Chelsea. Later on even the player submitted a transfer request, reportedly but was turned down from making a move as Chelsea believe they have a future with Odoi.
He now remains in the club with a year to go on his contract.
This is another youngster who has done brilliantly. He is a versatile player who can play as a centre back, a centre midfielder or a full back depending on his team’s needs. However, he is yet to make an impact on the big stage but is one with a bright future ahead for Chelsea.
