There are a huge number of top class players coming through the ranks in the Chelsea youth academy, as has been the case for many years now.
Every day you will hear of a new name to remember, and players to keep an eye on. But one player who has really gathered momentum this season is 18-year old striker Armando Broja.
He has recently signed his first professional contract with Chelsea, and he cannot stop scoring!
The Albanian under-19 international scored his 20th goal of the season for the Chelsea under-18s last night, which was enough to see them beat Millwall at Stamford Bridge.
Job done! 👊
Armando Broja’s 20th goal of the season is enough to send the Blues into the semi-finals, where we will be back at the Bridge hosting either Man United or Wigan.#CFCU18 pic.twitter.com/EywYJhB5TK

The goal saw his side go through to the FA Youth Cup Semi Finals, and he will surely be spearheading them into the final.
Broja is a classic type striker with a real eye for a goal and an assist. He is surely being watched closely already by Frank Lampard and his coaching team.
In fact, Lampard’s assistant Jody Morris was in attendance again last night, as he has been often this season…
To Be fair the Millwall fans have been the best fans I’ve seen at the bridge in a youth cup game
