Man Utd & Chelsea

Chelsea have matched a Manchester United record which stood for over 50 years by winning a fifth successive FA Youth Cup, with Arsenal overcome in a two-legged final.

The Busby Babes set the benchmark in the first five FA Youth Cup tournaments from 1953-57, with legendary players such as Sir Bobby Charlton and Duncan Edwards emerging victorious.

A Jody Morris-led Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-0 on Monday, to prevail 7-1 on aggregate, with a strike from Billy Gilmour, Callum Hudson-Odoi with two and Tino Anjorin adding to a commanding first-leg lead. The success represents the biggest winning margin for the Blues during their impressive five-year run.

Chelsea have dominated English youth football for many years and they have played in the last seven Youth Cup finals, losing only once. They were totally dominant in this season's tournament too, boasting an aggregate score of 26-0 prior to reaching the final.
