PL2 live stream preview: London derby as development squad look to bounce back

From the official Chelsea FC website:

The development squad will be looking to recover from back-to-back losses as they take on Tottenham Hotspur away from home, in a game that will be live streamed across our digital platforms.

Despite the title being beyond reach for Mark Robinson’s team, a strong finish to the season will still be on the agenda. Kick-off today is 7pm.

A look at our form

Having lost our last two games to Manchester City and Crystal Palace, it means the PL2 title is effectively heading back to the holders Man City.

Nevertheless, following last year’s relegation scrap, our boys have shown welcome improvement this season.

Last time out against City we lost 3-1 away from home in a tightly fought contest.

Despite our positive start, the young Citizens raced into the lead as Oscar Bobb converted from close range.

We could not find a way to goal in the first period and our slow start to the second meant that the home side could add to their lead with two goals in three second-half minutes.

Leo Castledine missed a penalty late on but managed to find himself on the scoresheet in what turned out to be a consolation as our title hopes ended.

Our opponents

The young Spurs sit in 13th place and they have a relegation fight on their hands. With one win in their last five, our young Blues will be wary that the home side will be in search of a win at all costs.

Reverse fixture

Our first game against our opponents this season was a convincing win at Kingsmeadow, as we ran out 3-0 winners.

Jude Soonsup-Bell, who now plays for tonight’s opponents, opened the scoring early in the second period.
