Chelsea FC Under-19s 2018/2019
Chelsea’s Under-21s, Under-19s and Under-18s make up the development process for young players at the club. Here we look at the Chelsea FC Under-19s 2018/2019.
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 Chelsea FC Under-19s 2018/2019.

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.
