Highlights: 16-year-old Chelsea sensation Soonsup-Bell makes history with 4 goals (including ridiculous backheel) for Blues U18s

Chelsea talent Jude Soonsup-Bell has taken centre stage on social media this evening, on the back of a dazzling performance for the club’s U18s.

Pensioners run riot

The Blues welcomed Barnsley to London a short time ago, for an FA Youth Cup clash.

Ed Brand’s men headed into proceedings amid an altogether mixed spell of form of late.

An 8-1 drubbing of Leicester three weeks ago was followed by a disappointing defeat to Aston Villa last time out, a result which left Chelsea sitting 6th in the U18 Premier League South table.

When all was said and done this afternoon, though, the capital outfit bounced back, and in some style.

Bizarrely, Brand’s outfit racked up the same scoreline as that from their last victory, downing Barnsley by 8 goals to 1.

Even more remarkable was the fact that attacker Jude Soonsup-Bell, who netted 4 times versus Leicester, bagged another quartet of goals today.

This included a moment of genuine magic to round out his poker, as the English starlet danced along the endline, before cutting back into the box, and back-heeling home a sumptuous finish.

Highlights of Chelsea’s scintillating performance, which also saw the likes of Ben Elliott and Lewis Bate net wonderful individual efforts, can be seen below:

Making history

Unsurprisingly, in the aftermath of the Blues’ latest win, it has been the name of Man of the Match Soonsup-Bell which has taken centre stage in the post-match chatter.

The striker is continuing to prove himself as one of the most gifted young talents on Chelsea’s books, taking his season tally to 15 goals this afternoon.

Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Soonsup-Bell is actually just 16 years of age.

His haul in front of goal versus Barnsley, meanwhile, also saw the teenage prodigy etch his name into the history books in southwest London:
