In a game which saw Erik Lamela play his first competitive game of football in over a year, the presence of Spurs’ recuperating star wasn’t enough to earn Burnett’s side any points, in what was a fiercely contested London Derby in the PL2. Played at Hotspur Way, Burnett’s side fell behind inside the opening two minutes to a Taylor-Crossdale goal. However, the lilywhites responded swiftly with Shayon Harrison netting the leveller on 11 minutes. Though Spurs couldn’t hold on as Taylor-Crossdale scored his brace early on in the second half. The blues eventually going on to grab a third courtesy of Callum Hudson Odoi’s stoppage time penalty. Spurs did pull a goal back when substitute Kazaiah Sterling converted George Marsh’s cross, but there was no time to mount a comeback, the final score Spurs under 23’s 2-3 Chelsea. Up next for our under 23’s is a trip up north to face Man City next Sunday, it’s always an entertaining game when those two sides meet. COYS
