In our latest episode of The Chelsea Spot Podcast, Paree (Owner – @CFCParee) , Orlando (Host – @0rland1nho) & Sairam (Writer- @ftblSairam) gave their thoughts after Chelsea beat Brentford to go through to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup! The boys were absolutely delighted due to Jude Soonsup-Bell, Harvey Vale and Xavier Simons all making their first team debuts after starting, and also praised the performances of Chalobah and Saul.
Jude Soonsup-Bell is set to be out for a minimum of another 3 weeks, The Chelsea Spot understand.
The academy striker suffered a nasty ankle injury against Everton in the first few minutes of the game just over two weeks ago, and ever since fans have been wondering on the whereabouts of the Englishman.
The Chelsea academy will certainly miss out on the striker, as in the last few months he’s pushed ahead of Bryan Fiabema and George Nunn for the centre forward spot.
Chelsea face AFC Fylde in the FA Youth Cup next Friday, and could miss up to 3 development squad games. Perhaps, he could make his return against Manchester United on the 23rd of April, the side which Chelsea beat 6-1 in December including a lovely left-footed strike from the edge of the box from Soonsup-Bell.
Hopefully this is an opportunity for Fiabema to regain some confidence in front of goal, or we could even see Anjorin feature more for the 23s.
