FA Youth Cup final: Chelsea beat Fulham 7-6 on aggregate


Chelsea staged a dramatic fightback to win the FA Youth Cup, beating Fulham 5-3 to claim a 7-6 aggregate win.

Moussa Dembele headed Fulham, 3-2 winners in the first leg, ahead but Chelsea hit back with Charlie Colkett's penalty and a Jordan Houghton strike.

That made it 4-4 on aggregate, but Fulham went two goals clear through Patrick Roberts and Solomon Sambou.

Isak Ssewankambo levelled on the night before Dom Solanke's late double gave Chelsea their fifth FA Youth Cup.

The Blues last won the trophy in 2012, beating Blackburn 4-1, before losing 4-2 to Norwich in last year's final.
