Chelsea youngsters continued their development in their various clubs, and 3 Blues youngsters were on the scoresheet for their clubs.
Nathan Ake scored the only goal of the game as he headed in from a corner kick to defeat Stoke City and earn Bournemouth a first Premier League away win of the season. He had previously played only 13 minutes of top-flight football for the Cherries ahead of the visit to Stoke, which has prompted Chelsea to react angrily and plan to withdraw the 21-year-old back in January.
Lewis Baker was also on the scoresheet on Saturday and it was another special effort by the Vitesse midfielder as he took his tally for the season to eight. After netting in both of England Under-21s’ recent matches, Baker controlled a cross with his left foot and then used his right to loft the ball over the keeper from a tight angle for a 1-0 lead. However, Vitesse were fortunate to come away with a 1-1 draw. Nathan also started for Vitesse but he managed only 35 minutes.
Burkina Faso international Bertrand Traore scored the fourth goal for Ajax as they beat NEC Nijmegen 5-0.
