Chelsea youth academy set-up

The Chelsea young player of the year award was discontinued in 2016. The new award is now the Academy young player of the year award.

In the past three seasons, Chelsea have had three English players win the Academy player of the year award. This bodes well for England national team future. Chelsea are frequently criticized for not giving the young players a chance.

But some youngsters like Andreas Christensen and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have proved their worth this season. Loftus-Cheek has been exceptional at loan club Crystal Palace. There have been calls for him to return to Chelsea next season to the Chelsea senior team. Meanwhile, Christensen was excellent at loan club Borussia Mochengladbach for two seasons. This season he has returned to Chelsea and broken into the first team.

Additionally, Callum Hudson-Odoi has been on the fringes of the Chelsea first team and is making appearances off the bench.

So which young players will break into the Chelsea first team next season? Well it’s hard to say but my guess would be that Andreas Christensen will kick on next season. Meanwhile, Loftus-Cheek should return to Chelsea after a good season at Crystal Palace. Callum Hudson-Odoi will likely stay at Chelsea next season instead of being loaned out.

Lets hope Chelsea give some of these talented youngsters game time in the near future. The hope is that some of these youth academy players will turn into the future Chelsea FC player of the year.
