Arsenal youngster impressed by 22 goal Chelsea wonderkid

Stamford Bridge

Chelsea's Lewis Baker hit the winner in the under-21 title match, and an Arsenal rival was almost lost for words to see him score again.

Lewis Baker is carving out quite a reputation for himself early into his football career, and it seems he already has the admiration of his peers.

Baker struck the winner against Manchester United at Old Trafford, to see his Chelsea side lift the under-21 trophy, completing a double with the FA Youth Cup.

The 19-year-old was named on the bench for the first team against Liverpool, showing how close he is to making a breakthrough at the club, while featuring in the FA Cup third round against Derby.

The winning goal was his 22nd of the season in all competitions, 18th for Chelsea, complemented by four for England's under-19 side.

His goal caused Arsenal under-21 striker Chuba Akpom to tweet in shock dismay, at seeing his England youth colleague continue his rapid rise.

He should to be fair know all about Baker, for it was the Chelsea star's backheel goal which helped knock Arsenal out of the Youth Cup at the semi-final stage last month.

That impressive strike can be seen below, which won him the goal of the season award at the club's ceremony last week.
