Josh Acheampong had an unforgettable afternoon as he helped the Chelsea Under-18s to a derby day victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Acheampong started at right-back in the clash of the two capital city rivals that was captured by the club’s media channel.

The 16-year-old was making just his second start of the season in the Under-18 Premier League.

He scored on his previous full 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Southampton.

History pretty much repeated itself against Spurs, with Acheampong on target once again.

With the scores level after 68 minutes, the defender took matters into his own hands to seal the fixture.

Having regained possession just outside of the centre-circle in Chelsea’s half, Acheampong strode forward with purpose and then passed out wide to Tudor Mendel-Idowu.

Mendel-Idowu drove towards the penalty area and then checked back to find his teammate on the edge of the box following some very nifty footwork.

The opportunity was too inviting for Acheampong not to strike from distance off his ‘weaker’ left foot.

As soon as he let rip, the ball seemed destined to sail into the top corner.

And sail into the top corner it most certainly did, giving the Spurs goalkeeper zero chance of preventing the effort.

Nearly all of Ed Brand’s young Blues rushed over to congratulate their colleague and his match-winning moment.
