FA YOUTH CUP FOURTH ROUND:

After a hard-fought 2-0 win away to Leeds United in the third round, the Chelsea youth take on Huddersfield Town in the fourth round.  Huddersfield are one academy tier below Chelsea, but they are top of their division and made it to the quarterfinals last year.  Their name may not be lit up in lights, but they could certainly pose a challenge.

With the squad fully fit but a busy week ahead (the U21s, who are, as we know, more like U18/19s, take on Porto in the U21 Premier League Cup on Wednesday), coaches Edwards and Viveash may be facing a few selection dilemmas.  That being said, the Youth Cup should take priority when it comes to the likes of Jeremie Boga and other supremely talented youngsters.

Kick-off's at 7:05pm live on Chelsea TV or in-person at Aldershot Town.  And on this here open thread.  Join us!
