A last minute sucker punch denied City Elite Development Squad a deserved point away at the reigning champions on the opening night of the Barclays U21 Premier League season.

Patrick Vieira’s side went down to a 2-1 defeat at Aldershot Town FC – rough justice for a performance laced with great heart, quality and hard running.

The excellent Pablo Maffeo gave City the lead with his first goal at under-21 level after two minutes and only a combination of the crossbar and Mitchell Beeney in the Chelsea goal prevented the visitors from doubling their lead before the break.

Chelsea had finished the first-half strongest and eventually they found a 77nd minute equaliser through the unfortunate Maffeo, the last person on the field who deserved to score an own goal.
