Chelsea wonderkid Charly Musonda had a message for supporters a day after their Premier League under-21 trophy win.

"This is what I call a trophy, great end to the season and congrats to @lew_baker on winning Chelsea's young player of the year award. See you next year."

Chelsea's all conquering youth team clinched the under-21 Premier League trophy on Wednesday night, beating Manchester United at Old Trafford.

In front of 13,000 spectators, Belgian wonderkid Charly Musonda added to his growing reputation with a superb solo goal to tie the game up after Tom Lawrence had opened for the hosts.

Lewis Baker scored a second half winner, his 22nd for club and country in a superb season, but Musonda's rise is just as noteworthy.

The 17-year-old only signed professional terms with Chelsea last October, and the fact he is already featuring and excelling for the under-21s speaks for itself.

The son of a former Zimbabwean international, Musonda represents Belgium's under-19 side.

His strike at Old Trafford was his first in nine appearances for Chelsea's under-21 side this season, and could not have been more perfectly timed.

Musonda posted the above image on Instagram late yesterday, toasting the trophy win, and congratulating his teammate on his winning strike.

Next season stands to be more of the same for the talented teenager, unless a loan deal comes his way, but another year in Chelsea's under-21s can't do him any harm.

There is a big queue for first team football at Chelsea, with Eden Hazard's younger brother Thorgan one of several who are further along that he is. But if Musonda continues progressing at his current wait, the club will be forced to give him the opportunity to shine.
