Photo: Tuchel calls three Chelsea youngsters into first-team training, including 18-year-old yet to make debut
Chelsea trio Dylan Williams, Lewis Hall and Harvey Vale have all been pictured in first-team training ahead of tonight’s match in the FA Cup.
The Blues have uploaded images on their official website of the group on the training pitches before Wednesday’s trip to Luton Town.
Thomas Tuchel’s side will be hoping to avoid a FA Cup upset when they travel to Championship outfit Luton in the fifth round of the competition.
Chelsea academy stars Hall and Vale are spotted training with the senior players. In addition, Blues youngster Williams is seen as part of the group.
Next crop of Chelsea talent
18-year-old left-back Williams only moved to Stamford Bridge in January from Derby County, so has not been around the club’s Under-23s group long.
He’s yet to make his senior debut for Chelsea, but perhaps he can get an opportunity this evening.
A Derby reported told The Chelsea Chronicle last month that Williams has some comparisons to Liverpool’s top-class full-back Andy Robertson.
Elsewhere, Blues academy prospect Vale would surely love to add to his three first-team appearances to date.
The 18-yar-old attacking midfielder is really impressing this campaign at youth level, so it’s no surprise to see him around Tuchel’s squad.
Finally, versatile 17-year-old Hall made his only senior appearance to date in the FA Cup third round win over Chesterfield.
He’s an extremely talented teenager that prefers to play in midfield, but is flexible enough to play as a left-sided defender or even further up the pitch.
