36-goal Chelsea sensation Tammy Abraham determined his side do not repeat Tottenham mistake

Chelsea took a big step towards winning the FA Youth Cup last night.

Prolific Chelsea strike sensation Tammy Abraham is taking nothing for granted despite his side's FA Cup Youth Cup first leg lead.

Abraham scored twice in the 3-1 win against Manchester City last night, giving his side a healthy advantage. Yet he knows very well how it can be turned around.

Chelsea had gone into the semi-final second leg 2-0 down against Spurs, but a stunning 5-2 second leg win saw them progress.

He told the FA's website: "We have to dig in really, we saw what happened to Tottenham and we’ve been there before so we have to keep going and do what we did today but next week."

Chelsea are looking to retain the trophy, and had it not been for a final defeat in 2013 to Norwich City they would currently be going for a third Youth Cup at under-18 level.

Abraham, 17, has a phenomenal 36 goals for Chelsea's youth teams this season, and has struck up a formidable partnership with Dominic Solanke, who was on the bench for the first team at the weekend.

Chelsea lack depth up front at present with Didier Drogba and Loic Remy the only back-up to injury prone top scorer Diego Costa.

With Solanke, Abraham, and on loan Patrick Bamford in reserve, Jose Mourinho would do well to resist the temptation to spend this summer, regardless of whether the Youth Cup side suffer a final collapse against City next week in the second leg, the prolific strikers have proved their worth already.
