Goals from Dean O’Halloran, Patrick Roberts and Aaron Redford earned Fulham’s Under-18s a 3-0 win at rivals Chelsea on Friday afternoon.

Chelsea made a lively start but it was Fulham who had the ball in the net in the 23rd minute only for Roberts to see his effort disallowed for offside after good work by Ryheem Sheckleford and Emerson Hyndman.

Five minutes later, however, the Whites were in front when a long diagonal pass from Cameron Burgess sent Jordan Evans in down the left and his cross was converted by O’Halloran.

Chelsea had a good chance to level in the 32nd minute but Jay Dasilva headed over from Charlie Wakefield's cross.

Fulham started the second half poorly but increased their lead out of nothing on the hour mark when Roberts went on a solo run, cut inside from the edge of the area and scored from 20 yards.

It was becoming the Roberts show. The winger then drove between two Chelsea players but was foiled by Blues goalkeeper Bradley Collins when one-on-one.

O’Halloran should have added a third but saw his effort saved by Collins, before Dom Solanke headed wide from Nathaniel Chalobah's excellent cross.

Substitute Redford made sure of the points late on, dancing around the goalkeeper and slotting in from an acute angle after a defence-splitting pass from Josh Smile.

Fulham: Rodàk, Sheckleford, Adebayo, Burgess, Evans, Smile, Sambou, Roberts (Redford 80), Hyndman (Leacock-McLeod 89), Williams, O’Halloran.
