A late Alex Kiwomya brace gave Chelsea a 2-0 victory over Liverpool in the first leg of their FA Youth Cup Semi-Final.
The Anfield tie was heading for a goalless draw until the England U17 international popped up twice in the final ten minutes to fire the holders into pole position ahead of next week’s second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Kiwomya’s opening strike highlighted his composure in front of goal as he took control of a deflected Lewis Baker shot and fired a shot past Ryan Fulton.
And he extended the Blues’ advantage in added time. Jeremie Boga led a Chelsea counter-attack, advanced into space and fed Kiwomya down the right. The would-be two-goal hero finished expertly with an angled drive. It was his sixth goal in this season’s competition.
Norwich beat Nottingham Forest 1-0 at the City Ground in the other Semi-Final.
