Youth Cup Final Open Thread: Blackburn vs Chelsea FC (0-4 aggregate)

Welcome to the most anticlimactic final ever. The Blues come into the second leg of the two legged fixture leading 4-0 on aggregate, so anything short of a 4 goal defeat will see the Blues win the title. While this certainly won't stop the Blues from attacking tonight, it certainly decreases the urgency by a good margin. Blackburn have been shaky at the back, so I'd look for Chelsea to be on the front foot from the start. The Chelsea lineup is as follows:

Chelsea: Blackman, Kane, Davey, Nkumu, Gordon, Chalobah (c), Affane, Swift, Feruz, Baker, Piazon

Subs: Kiwomya, Beeney, Loftus-Cheek, Nortey, Nditi

Blackburn: Urwin, Daly, Wylie, Hanley, Edwards (c), O'Connell, Mason, Cotton, Payne, O'Sullivan, Fernandez

Subs: Haley, Dilo, Beesley, Boland, Laverty

This game may have some additional meaning for some, as there's every chance a few of these kids will make the bench on Sunday if they impress. Let's pile it on...Let's go Blues!
