Chelsea coach hails defenders Ola Aina, Fikayo Tomori

17 September 2015, 14:10

London - Ola Aina and Fikayo Tomori were both named in the starting XI as Chelsea U19s began the defense of their UEFA Youth League title with a 3 - 0 rout of Maccabi Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

Chelsea U19s manager Adi Viveash was impressed with the contribution of the Anglo - Nigerian duo in the heart of defense.

Kasey Palmer bagged a brace for the Londoners, in the 20th and 47th minutes, before Tammy Abraham extended their advantage 12 minutes from time.

''We controlled the game for long periods but I felt Maccabi had a good shape and caused us a couple of problems,'' Adi Viveash told Chelsea's official website.

''They were well-organised but we're really pleased to start with a clean sheet and our back four were strong.''

Also in the UEFA Youth League, Nura Abdullahi and beanpole striker Sadiq Umar were involved in Roma's goalless draw against 2014 winners Barcelona.

Arsenal's Alex Iwobi and Aaron Eyoma assisted the young Gunners beat Dinamo Zagreb 2 - 0 in their opener.
