Swindon Town vs Chelsea Under-21 Match Preview

It’s déjà vu for Chelsea Under-21 as they visit Swindon almost a year to the day since their last visit – and the Blues’ youngsters will be hoping for exactly the same result.

This is the third season in four that these teams have been grouped together in the EFL Trophy and while Swindon won 2-1 back in 2016, 12 months ago it was Chelsea that romped to a 4-0 triumph at the County Ground with Charlie Brown scoring twice.

Chelsea went on to reach the last 16 and they have been among the more successful academy teams that have embraced this competition since it was revamped and opened up to Premier League clubs four seasons ago.

They have a new manager this season in Andy Myers, who won the European Cup Winners’ Cup with the Blues as a player in 1997-98, and among those aiming to further their first-team prospects under his guidance are forward Ike Ugbo and midfielder Billy Gilmour.

Swindon, meanwhile, started their season with an excellent 2-0 victory away to Scunthorpe in League Two at the weekend with Jerry Yates scoring on his debut after joining on loan from Rotherham United.

Although it is unlikely to be 4-0 again, Chelsea are fancied to repeat last season’s victory against Swindon as they clearly take this competition seriously and have just the right structure in place to make a success of their involvement.
